Kevin Costner’s ‘Draft Day’ gets off to tepid start at box office

It looks as if the power of the NFL might not extend to Hollywood.

From Joey Morona of Cleveland.com:

‘Draft Day’ pulled in $9.75 million at the box office in its first weekend of release, according to industry estimates.

The movie — starring Kevin Costner as the Cleveland Browns GM juggling his personal and professional life in the hours leading up to the NFL Draft — underperformed by many accounts.

Entertainment Weekly called the film’s weekend take a “fumble,” while Forbes described it as “relatively sad.”

Box Office Mojo said Lionsgate was expecting an opening in the “low teens,” while¬†BoxOffice.com projected an opening weekend of $13.5 million.
