Brad Pitt’s Action Comedy Bullet Train Collects $4.6M In Thursday

On Thursday night’s previews, David Leitch’s Bullet Train left the station with $4.6 million. At 3 p.m., Sony’s action film premiered. This story of an assassin cruising a fast Japanese bullet train stars a star-studded cast, with Brad Pitt taking the lead. Joey King, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Andrew Koji, Hiroyuki Sanada, Michael Shannon, and Sandra Bullock are some of the other stars listed on the marquee.

Sony is aiming for a domestic debut in the $30 million area while conducting an aggressive marketing campaign in an effort to generate interest. Bullet Train now has a 53 percent critics’ approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, so critics haven’t exactly embraced it. Since Bullet Train is the final summer release from a big studio, its performance is under more scrutiny. The summer box office season typically lasts until Labor Day, but pandemic-related delays are continuing, and studios are experiencing postproduction delays with some of their films.
