The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo had a budget close to $90 million, however the highly-anticipated flick only brought in $13 million during opening weekend.
When asked if that makes Dragon Tattoo a flop, one movie analyst tells E!:
- "A debut of $13 million over the holiday season is equivalent to a lump of coal, especially for a film that brings along this much fanfare. With a budget approaching $90 million, plus purchasing the rights to the Millennium franchise, plus big-time marketing, this will go down as a dud."
Ouch! In positive box office news, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol raked in $26.5 million, followed by Sherlock Holmes with $17.8 million. Rounding out the top three ... the newest Chipmunks flick.
We'll see if Dragon Tattoo picks up steam at the box office as the new year approaches.
We personally loved the original Swedish version!
