The Worst Movie Premiere In History

Usually movies opening on a holiday weekend have the added bonus of extra days, or time for patrons to find the movie at their favorite gigoplex. The movie for kids opening this weekend called “Oogieloves in The Big Balloon Adventure” is having a little trouble early on this particular holiday weekend.

The movie, created by the guy who brought “The Teletubbies” and “Thomas the Tank Engine” to American TV, opened Wednesday, and made $60,000. Total. In 1,500 theaters. That equates to $40 a screen. At 10 bucks a pop, an average of 4 people a screen watched the opening days of “Oogieloves”. If that holds up over the weekend, it would be the worst opening weekend of a movie ever. Considering the movie is targeted for 2 to 5 year olds, its a good chance a family of 4 could have the entire theater to themselves. Too bad for Mom and Dad the tots can’t take themselves to this dud.

And the movie has some stars in it. In the story from Yahoo “‘Oogieloves’ Poised to Make the Wrong Kind of Box-Office History”, Todd Cunningham writes

“There are some generally fun folks involved: Toni Braxton voices Rosalie Rosebud, Christopher Lloyd is Lero Sombrero, Cary Elwes is Bobby Wobbly, Chazz Palminteri is Marvin Milkshake and Cloris Leachman plays Dotty Rounder.”

Toni Braxton and Chazz Palminteri? This has got “bomb” written all over it. Ishtar, move over. There’s a new really bad movie in town.

Here’s the trailer for “Oogieloves in The Big Balloon Adventure” I’m sorry. Really I am.
