Box Office: ‘Bullet Train’ Arrives With So-So 30.1 Million Debut, ‘Easter Sunday’ Stumbles
Bullet Train,” a John Wick-ian romp with Brad Pitt in the aisle seat, arrived in theaters with a 30.1 million opening weekend. That’s enough to top the domestic box office chart, but it’s only a so-so result given “Bullet Train’s” 90 million price tag and Pitt’s star power.
