Recently released of Sony Pictures violent comedy thriller ‘Bullet Train’ has received mixed reviews from critics and the audience. The film received positive reviews from the audience while receiving poor reviews from critics. According to reports, not only in terms of reviews, but the audience has also praised the film at the ticket window.
Is Bullet Train Hit Or Flop?
According to reports, Brad Pitt’s action comedy thriller ‘Bullet Train’, released in the USA on 5 August 2022, in more than 4300 theaters, collected $12.84 million on its opening day and $30.03 million on its opening weekend at the domestic box office. Overall, ‘Bullet Train’ has so far collected $103.36 million domestically and $135.90 million overseas, for a worldwide total of $239.26 million.
As an R-Rated film, the opening of ‘Bullet Train’ is well, but for Sony Pictures and its makers, it’s not well because the makers spent a lot on prints and advertising for a $86-90 million production, and it’s easy to say ‘Bullet Train’ needs around $225 million to justify and break even its budget. $225 million is only just for justifying the budget, while for success, it needs around more than $250-75 million, and no doubt, ‘Bullet Train’ has failed to complete it. Looking at these numbers, Brad Pitt starring ‘Bullet Train’ is an Above-Average film at the box office; no loss and no big profit.
The ‘Bullet Train’ is an important film for Brad Pitt, and if it does not succeed at the box office, then Brad Pitt’s career will decline since his last year’s career was not going well, and Sony Pictures has paid Brad Pitt $20 million for his role in this film.
Talking about the critical response, then the ‘Bullet Train’ received a 7.3/10* IMDb rating based on 387k votes on Rotten Tomatoes, it scored 54/100% based on 339 reviews.
