In the United States, cinemas have reopened in 44 states since this month. The thriller Unhinged , with Russel Crowe in the lead role, was the first new film to be released nationally and has scored better than expected.
The film raised 4 million dollars (about 3.4 million euros) in the first weekend. With the knowledge that the cinemas are only allowed to run at 30 to 50 percent of their maximum capacity, that is a surprisingly good result.
According to The Hollywood Reporter , other competing Hollywood studios were eager to see the results of the film and were positively surprised at the results. The proceeds from the film could affect the fate of other Hollywood films.
Things will get really exciting for the American film industry next week, when Christopher Nolan’s Tenet is released. According to experts, that film will largely determine to what extent studios will be willing to release their major films this year.
Unhinged received moderate to moderate reception in the United States. The film has a score of 48% on RottenTomatoes, but was praised for the acting of Russel Crowe.
