Self/Less: Ryan Reynolds Sci-Fi Thriller Flops


Focus Features’ Self/Less flopped, picking up roughly $5.4 million from 1,953 locations.

The sci-fi thriller about a radical medical procedure is the latest fumble for Ryan Reynolds, who is still laboring to get out from under the massive failures of “The Green Lantern” and “R.I.P.D.”

A trailer for the actor’s lastes picture, Deadpool, his R-rated comic book adaptation, made a strong impress at Comic-Con this weekend.

“Self/Less” was produced for $26 million, partly financed by foreign pre-sales that limit Focus’ and co-backer Endgame’s financial exposure.
