The Weinstein Company’s first movie in wake of Harvey scandal flops in theatres as Amityville: The Awakening grosses just $742
The first film from The Weinstein Company to hit theatres in the wake of the sexual harassment and abuse scandal surrounding co-founder Harvey Weinstein is officially a major flop.
Amityville: The Awakening starring Bella Thorne played in 10 theatres on Saturday and grossed just $742, according to THR.com.
It’s more bad news for the company that’s had a number of projects cancelled and that faces an uncertain financial future after the movie mogul was accused of rape, assault and harassment over decades.
The spin-off from the hugely successful original 1979 film The Amityville Horror had had its theatrical release delayed several times in the past year.
In September, The Weinstein Company announced it would be available to download for free from Google Play from October 12 to November 8 and have a limited one-day theatrical release on October 28.
