Going in Style: Unnecessary Remake, Starring Alan Arkin, Michael Caine, and Morgan Freeman

New Line’s launch of senior-citizen heist comedy Going in Style is following in fourth with about $12.1 million at 3,061 sites.

It performs above recent expectations, which had forecast a quiet finish around $8 million.

Reviews have been mixed to negative–43% “rotten” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

But the budget for the reboot, starring Alan Arkin, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman, is a modest $25 million, and the studio cannot lose money on it.
