It was directed by A Royal Affair's Nikolaj Arcel. Critics mostly panned the movie, leading to its current 18 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
The less than $20 million opening is quite disappointing for a film that has spent years in production.
It has been a huge hit with cinema-goers and has already made 133.6 million dollars (£102.3 million) in the US. An awards-season push could end up helping its bottom line. The movie is toplined by "Star Wars" breakout John Boyega, as well as Will Poulter, and Algee Smith.
"This is another tough weekend for the industry", concluded movie industry money-watcher Paul Dergarabedian at comScore.
Admitting that this is "uncharted territory" in terms of connecting film and TV in one franchise, "the success of the film has no correlation to whether the show will be successful or not, it has to stand on its own", Wiczyk said, noting that the performance of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. performance is not tied to how The Avengers movies do. Those movies earned $10.2 million and $7.7 million respectively.
In limited release, TWC's "Wind River" should make $164,167 from four locations. Sheridan conceived the movie as part of a loose trilogy that also includes two recent releases that he wrote, but did not direct, "Sicario" and "Hell or High Water". August is a lot quieter this year compared to last year when Suicide Squad came out. This summer has lagged overall due to a number of big-budget movies flopping or underperforming, and this latest showing will only put the business farther behind.
