Yahoo reports that Hollywoodland, the “other” Superman film, came in second at the box office this weekend:
With its $6 million opening, “Hollywoodland” opened about $1 million below the expectations of its distributor, Focus Features. The film centers on the mysterious death of “Superman” TV star George Reeves, played by Ben Affleck, whose surprise victory in the best-actor category at the Venice International Film Festival on Saturday night perplexed critics and journalists. Adrien Brody and Diane Lane also star. Focus Features is the art-house unit of General Electric Co.’s NBC Universal Inc.
The new supernatural thriller The Convenant took the top spot in what was a pretty dismal, yet typical for this time of year, week at the movies.
