When was the last time actor Colin Farrell had a hit? Take your time. We’ll wait.
Farrell’s latest film, the fantasy romance "Winter's Tale," flopped in its debut over Valentine’s Day weekend, adding yet another movie to the Irish actor’s ever-growing streak of box office failures. Despite opening in nearly 3,000 theatres across North America, the $60-million drama grossed a paltry $8.1 million at the box office. Ouch.
"Winter's Tale" is the third film in a row starring Farrell to tank, after 2013’s “Dead Man Down” and 2012’s “Seven Psychopaths.” Farrell hasn’t headlined a big hit since 2003’s police flick “S.W.A.T."
In recent years, movies featuring the actor in supporting roles (like the comedy hit “Horrible Bosses,” the animated film “Epic,” and the biopic “Saving Mr. Banks”) have typically fared much better. But big budget tentpoles like 2012’s “Total Recall” remake? Not so much. The $125-million Farrell sci-fi action flick grossed a disappointing $198 million worldwide.
