Despite ‘The 15:17 To Paris’ starring the three real life heros did not receive favourable comments from the audiences, the movie has managed to recieve a decent opening at the Box Office.
The 15:17 To Paris Weekend Box Office Collection.
According to the Associated Press Clint Eastwood’s ‘The 15:17 To Paris’ that debuted the Box Office this Friday alongwith Peter Rabbit and Fifty Shades Freed made a weekend Collection of $12.6 million staying at the overall 3rd position behind the number one and two Fifty Shades Freed and Peter Rabbit respectively.

Plot of ‘The 15:17 To Paris’.
Anthony Sadler, Alek Scarlatos and Spencer Stone star as themselves as Clint Eastwood recreates their real life heroic action on the Train To Paris in August 2015. The story revolves around their lives and how they manage to save the lives of more than 500 fellow passengers from terrorist attack on the train to Paris.
Market trend shows a downfall as compared to last year.
The similar period last year with 3 similar releases grossed $55 million more as compared to now. ‘The Lego Batman Movie’ ($53 million more than double of Peter Rabbit) ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ ($47 million) and the action sequel John Wick: Chapter 2 ($30 million and more than double to that of The 15:17 To Paris).
What went wrong for ‘The 15:17 To Paris’.
The title of the movie was very confusing and did not appeal to much of the audiences. But more than the title it was lack of a bigger and a known face that went against the Clint Eastwood’s movie making it the worst grosser since 2011. Inspite all the three lead actors and real life militants being under 20, more than 57% of the population that went to see the movie was over 50. The movie was thus unable to attract the younger crowd which resulted in the lower box office results.
