Back to The 18 Worst Wide-Release Opening Weekends of 2011
20th Century Fox
'Glee: The 3D Concert Movie' (8/12)
Opening: $5,961,231 on 2,040 screens (per-screen: $2,922)
The idea was that fans of the hit Fox series 'Glee' ("Gleeks," for short) would come out in droves to see their favorite McKinley High School glee clubbers on the big-screen. And in 3D. They didn't. The concert movie was a bust theatrically, though between DVD and soundtrack sales, Twentieth Century Fox probably thought of any ticket sales as merely gravy on an already delicious cash cow.
