‘Oogieloves’ is Worst Ever Opening

Now this is a record you don't want on your repertoire. Oogieloves In The BIG Balloon Adventure has made its mark on history as the lowest grossing wide-release film of all time. The film comes from Kenn Viselman, the man behind the American versions of The Teletubbies and Thomas the Tank Engine, but Oogieloves only earned $448,000 in 2,160 theatres—a per-screen average of $207. The Possession won the weekend box office, bringing in $17.7 million from Friday to Sunday, with Lawless coming in second with $9.7 million. Rounding out the top five were The Expendables 2 with $8.8 million, The Bourne Legacy fell 22 percent to $7.2 million and ParaNorman made $6.6 million.
