Jennifer Aniston’s personal life is going through a flourishing period. Unfortunately, we can’t say the same thing about her career. According to Us Weekly, the actress’ latest movie, “Wanderlust” was released this week on the big screen, but analysts called it a box office fiasco, given the small numbers of film goers who have chosen to view this movie.
“Wanderlust” occupied the eight position of the weekend classification with only $6.6 million earnings. Aniston co-starred with her real life partner, Justin Theroux and her longtime pal, Paul Rudd with whom she played in “The Object of My affection” in 1998.
Critics have long noticed the 43-year-old actress’ descending career path. In fact, Aniston didn’t have a number one box office debut since her 2009 movie “He’s Just Not That Into You”. If “Wanderlust” had a weak start, we can’t say the same thing about “Act of Valor”, the motion picture which was produced with the participation of real-life Navy SEALS. The movie made $24.7 million in its debut weekend, thus occupying the top position.
The second place of the weekend chart was taken by Tyler Perry’s “Goode Deeds”. The film features Gabrielle Union and Thandie Newton’s performances and managed to raise $16 million.
On the next three positions we find the same movies that were highly appreciated in the previous weekends. “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” continues to draw many kids to the theaters; its revenue for the weekend amounted, according to the numbers provided by the analysts, to $13.5 million. Denzel Washington’s “Safe House” is no longer as requested as it used to be in its first week; however, the movie is still in the top five motion pictures. This weekend, it came on the fourth place with $11.4 million revenue.
The fifth most requested movie of the weekend was “The Vow”. Producers never expected this production to be so popular. They initially thought that people will want to see it around Saint Valentine’s Day. Despite this, “The Vow” continues to attract viewers, thus gathering $10 million earnings last weekend.
