Bullet Train, featuring Brad Pitt, Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, & Andrew Koji is about to hit theatres this Friday. The movie is based on a Japanese novel named Maria Beetle. Bullet Train box office day 1 advance bookings, total screens, budget & more details are given here.
When "Bullet Train" debuts in 4,300 North American theatres on Friday, the studio will put Brad Pitt's broad appeal to the test. The thrilling assassin thriller is anticipated to open to at least USD 30 million, which will be enough to top domestic charts. In the fragmented moviegoing world of today, that wouldn't be a bad beginning. But for a high-profile thriller targeted toward adult men, such forecasts are lower than what independent box office analysts were anticipating.
The expensive R-rated "Bullet Train" will need to remain in theatres all summer long to make up for its high cost. Without accounting for the numerous millions spent on public promotion, Sony spent USD 90 million on the movie's production.
On Rotten Tomatoes, "Bullet Train" has a 60% approval rating despite its mixed critical reception. Peter Debruge of Variety seems to be having a good time while appreciating the stylized fight scenes and endearing characters.
