Jennifer Aniston's new film Cake crumbled at the box office in its first week, barely making the top 20 and earning less than $1 million.

The comedy superstar's dramatic turn in the drama, also starring Sam Worthington and Anna Kendrick, finished 19th overall for the weekend taking in $916,179 over 482 screens, averaging $1,901 per screen. (To put it in perspective, American Sniper, starring Aniston ex Bradley Cooper, topped the box office with an average of $17,444 per screen, making more than $64 million over 3,705 screens.)

The 45-year-old's performance in the low-budget drama -- which earned her Golden Globe and SAG nominations, but failed to register with Oscar voters -- would have been considered a relative commercial success with a $5 million intake and $10,000 per screen average.

The poor showing might keep the A-lister on the comedy side of the fence, as her recent blockbusters Horrible Bosses 2 ($54 million to-date) and We're the Millers ($150 million) performed at much more respectable paces.
