2016’s Monster Trucks was to launch a brand new franchise from Paramount but, after the opening barely scraped over $10 million at the field workplace, the flimsy premise crashed. The evaluations weren’t nice (although not Emoji Movie terrible) and its opening weekend ranks as one of the worst for a movie rolling out nationwide. With no actual manufacturing problems to talk of, Stealth crashed and burned on its own terrible merits, overwhelmed by the likes of Wedding Crashers and Sky High on its opening weekend. This 2005 sci-fi Top Gun-esque tale boasted the early-’00s rising stars Josh Lucas, Jessica Biel and Jamie Foxx with The Fast and the Furious and xXx director Rob Cohen behind the digicam. Sounds like a solid action movie destined for a middling but worthwhile future.
