'MacGruber' Bombs at Box Office (Get it? Bombs!)
Bad news for MacGruber and Co. Despite a relentless Internet marketing campaign and surprisingly positive reviews (relatively speaking), the film has completely tanked at the box office.
The Village Voice is reporting that the SNL spin off pulled in a paltry $4.1 million over the weekend, included a disastrous $1.5 million from its opening night. Even with a budget of only $10 million, the results are disappointing. And the worst part of it all is that MacGruber's failure has basically killed any chance of me selling my Goat Boy spec script. Screw you, Will Forte! You've crushed my dreams, yet again! (Box Office Mojo)
