There are films that flop at the box office and then there are films that flop at the box office. Then, in another category underneath that, there’s Morgan Freeman’s latest flick ‘Momentum’.

After being universally panned by critics, the movie had one of the worst opening weekends on record, as the total UK box office sales came in at a rather dismal £46.

Well, at least it was made on a low budget. Huh? ‘Momentum’ cost $20 million to make? Oh dear.

Not helping matters was the fact the film was shown in just 10 cinemas, two of which failed to sell any tickets at all.

It’s not just the box office figures that the film’s cast and creators will want to avoid, as the reviews weren’t much better, with Empire magazine even branding ‘Momentum’ “one of the worst films you won’t see in 2015”.

The news comes just days after Forbes revealed the worst performing films of the year.

‘Rock The Kasbah’, which starred Bill Murray and Bruce Willis, took a tragic $2.87 million worldwide, but let’s be honest, that’s positively glowing compared to these figures.

There’s always a silver lining though and things could definitely be worse.

The record for the lowest opening weekend ever is still held by the film ‘My Nikifor’, which took just £7. Ouch.
