Matt Damon's and George Clooney's "Suburbicon" is One of the Biggest Flops In Paramount Pictures' History

The Weinstein Effect?

Or is it just a crap movie?

Probably a little bit of both.

George Clooney's "Suburbicon" didnít just struggle at the box office. It sank.

The film this weekend became one of Paramount Pictures' worst performing wide-releases ever, and it marked a new box office low for Clooney as a director and for star Matt Damon.

"Suburbicon," which debuted on 2,045 screens, notched one of the most dismal wide-release debuts in recent years. It earned just $2.8 million at the box office, though it cost $25 million for Black Bear Pictures to produce and $10 million for Paramount Pictures to distribute.

...

Critics didn't respond well to the mix, either; its Rotten Tomatoes score is just 26 percent fresh.

It's not just the liberals' beloved Aren't Suburban People Just Trash Racists? genre that seems to be in bad odor with the public. It's also their other beloved genre, Aren't Conservatives Destroying the Earth With Their Cars and Racism?, that's also flopping hugely.

Director Dean Devlin's "Geostorm" opened over the weekend, sans critics reviews, to an anemic $13 million. The film reportedly cost up to $140 million.

The Weekly Planet podcast talks about the catastrophe of "Geostorm."

That's not the only enviroxploitation film that's flopped recently, as Christian Toto notes -- so did the Al Gore Inconvenient Truth sequel and the goofy Mother Earth parody "Mother!" Oh, and he says that there's some environmental nuttery in the Blade Runner sequel too, and that also flopped.

In related don't-want-this news:

Netflix has decided to suspend production of House of Cards' last season as they look into the Spacey matter. Previously they had announced the show would be cancelled after the completion of the sixth season; now that seems up in the air.



Oh, and Andy Dick has been fired from a movie over complaints of recent sexual harassment.

Andy Dick has been dropped from the independent feature film Raising Buchanan following accusations of sexual harassment and misconduct on set.

The Hollywood Reporter was not able to reach any of the alleged victims, however, two sources detailed Dickís inappropriate behavior, which included groping people's genitals, unwanted kissing/licking and sexual propositions of at least four members of the production. It's unclear if those involved were actors or crew.

In what's looking like a pattern in these cases, he denies the most serious claims while allowing some of the less serious stuff might have happened:

Though the 51-year-old actor denies he groped anyone, he does admit to other inappropriate behavior: "I might have kissed somebody on the cheek to say goodbye and then licked them. That's my thing."

And topless female protesters protest the opening of Roman Polanski exhibit in France, saying that Polanski should be given a Caesar (the French Oscar) for rape. This as another allegation of underage rape is leveled against Polanski.
