Our Brand Is Crisis: Sandra Bullock’s Biggest Flop?

David Gordon Green’s dramedy Our Brand Is Crisis opened Friday to $1.1 million for a projected $3.3 million weekend, the worst nationwide start in the career of mega star and Oscar winner Sandra Bullock.

The political film, also starring Billy Bob Thornton, was a passion project for Bullock and producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov.

Inspired by true events, Bullock and Thornton play political operatives trying to influence the Bolivian presidential election.

It has been ravaged by critics, however, while audiences gave it a C+ CinemaScore.

Warners co-financed the $28 million movie with Participant Media.

It certainly doesn’t help that Halloween falls on a Saturday this year, but no one expected the weekend’s new offering to get this bad.

Our Brand is Crisis, pacing to come in No. 7, also means more bad news for Warner, which has suffered a string of misses, including Pan and The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
To date, Bullock’s lowest nationwide opening is Two If By Sea, which debuted to $4.7 million in 1996.
