Nebraska (2013): Alexander Payne’s Weakest, Least Commercial Picture

Nebraska, Alexander Payne’s inexplicably Oscar-nominated picture, shot in black-and-white, grossed about $17 million in its domestic theatrical run, compared to its budget of $12 million.

Dividing critics, it’s one of his two weakest films.

Of Payne’s Oscar nominated films (Sideways, The Descendants), it is the least commercial films to date in terms of box-office grosses.
