“R.I.P.D.” Is D.O.A.


Another high-budget Hollywood movie made a less than stellar debut this weekend. R.I.P.D. which cost upwards of $150 million to make was dead on arrival at the box-office, barely able to generate a tenth of its budget in its first few days of release. The film made $12.8 million which didn’t even put the movie in the top five for the weekend.
