Holiday spirit eludes Hollywood

2011-12-11 19:46
Los Angeles - The holiday spirit is eluding Hollywood, which has stumbled through its worst two weekends of 2011 at a time when business usually starts to pick up as big year-end releases approach.

Overall domestic revenues are expected to come in below the dismal $81m haul a week ago, which had been the low weekend so far this year.

This looks like Hollywood’s worst total in more than three years, going back to the weekend after Labour Day in 2008, when overall grosses finished below $70m.

The star-filled romance New Year’s Eve led this weekend with a weak $13.7m debut. The cast includes Hilary Swank, Robert De Niro, Halle Berry, Ashton Kutcher and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Jonah Hill’s comedy The Sitter opened at No 2 with just $10m.
