‘Cloud Atlas’ is a Box Office Flop In Third Place

With a budget of $100 million, Andy and Lana Wachowski better hope their film, Cloud Atlas, makes more money in “another world” or life, because it came in third in its opening weekend and grossed a disappointing $9.4 million.

The complicated sci-fi flick, which features “six narrators spanning the globe and the centuries,” was beat by fellow R-rated drama Argo (in its second week), and PG children’s movie Hotel Transylvania.

Alt Film Guide reports that Cloud Atlas is Tom Hanks’ lowest weekend grossing film since 1986’s Nothing in Common, blaming “weak word of mouth” and a “disjointed plotline.” 

Atlas author David Mitchell said just last week that he believed his book to be “unfilmable,” but hey, at least it did better than Silent Hill: Revelation (5th place, $8M) and Fun Size (10th place, $4.1M).
