Pitt's new movie, the small-budget gangster film Killing Them Softly, bombed with filmgoers who panned it with a rare "F" grade on average in polling by audience survey firm CinemaScore. The movie landed in seventh place with US$7 million in ticket sales at domestic theatres.
The results were much brighter for Breaking Dawn - Part 2, the fifth and final film in the Twilight vampire and werewolf saga, which has earned US$254.6 million at North American (US and Canadian) theatres since its smash debut on Nov 16.
