It was bound to happen sooner or later – Wedding Crashers star Vince Vaughn has seen his new film Unfinished Business bomb spectacularly in its opening weekend at the box-office.
The comedy, which also stars Dave Franco and atom Wilkinson, is expected to walk away with just $5 million this weekend from 2,200 cinemas, marking the worst performance of any film in his career, to date.
Known for his same character performance in every film, Vaughn often sees his solo project tank, like last years box-office flop, Delivery Man, which took only $7 million in its first weekend of release. The film itself was actually an intriguing watch, I mean how can a story about a bloke that advertantly fathers 513 children after a mix up at a sperm clinic not be interesting to watch – it also probably helped that Hollywood golden-boy Chris Pratt delivered yet another awesome performance.
However Unfinished Business, which follows a group of down-and-put businessmen who travel to Germany to try and save their floundering company, looks set to be as bad as the trailer makes out.
Perhaps it’s time for Vince Vaughn to step out of his cemented comfort zone and explore the kind of characters he portrayed early on his career – such as his character Rick Barnes in the 2001 thriller Domestic Disturbance.
