It does not appear that the controversy surrounding Kevin Hart had a negative impact on his new movie, The Upside.
The movie opened #1 at the box upsetting Aquaman that has held the top position for three weeks. Aquaman passed the $1 billion worldwide.
The Upside made $19.6 million. January tends to be a slow month for movies. Also known as a “dumping ground” for movies.
The movie cost $37.5 million to make it.
While the movie did open #1 do you think it’s opening weekend numbers are low? Do you think the controversy hurt it a little bit or is it just a slow January?
