Fans wandered away — well, actually they ran away — from Wanderlust at the movie theaters this weekend. The Jennifer Aniston – Paul Rudd comedy was a major box office disaster.
Studio expectations had been soft, but it’s even worse than that. Consider Wanderlust D.O.A.
Finishing in sixth place, the movie has an estimated $6.6 million take for the weekend. That’s one big ouch.
By comparison, the feel good Act of Valor, featuring some real-life Navy SEALs, pulled in a strong $24.7 million.
Aniston began dating her other Wanderlust costar, Justin Theroux, after they wrapped production. They’re still going strong.
