    Brad Pitt’s latest movie, Killing Them Softly, opened this weekend with a weak box-office performance. The movie, which took $15 million to make, only pulled in about $7 million as it faced off against such heavy hitters as Breaking Dawn 2 and Lincoln. To make matters worse, moviegoers gave the flick a CinemaScore grade of F, a rarity in that only seven other films have received that score.
