People’s attentions are already turned towards this coming Friday’s debut of Thor, but another comic book movie came out this past weekend: Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, starring comic book movie veteran Brandon Routh (Superman Returns, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World). It’s based on the long-running Italian comic book Dylan Dog, about a paranormal investigator. According to Box Office Mojo, it only made it to 875 theaters (by contrast, the weekend’s No. 1, Fast Five, debuted at 3,644) and netted $885,500 over the weekend, for No. 17 and a per-screen average of $1,011 — a lower average than No. 18, The Lincoln Lawyer, in its seventh week of release.
Critics haven’t been too kind to Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, either, with the film sitting at a 30 — “generally unfavorable” — average on Metacritic. Rotten Tomatoes has it at a 7% fresh rating, with one favorable review (from Horror.com, who urged, “don’t take it too serious”) against 13 unfavorable takes.
