by at . Comments

It's okay, John Carter. You can relax now.

A slow weekend at the box office revealed a new champion (horror film The Possession, which grabbed the top spot from back-to-back winner The Expendables 2) and a new basement feeder, as The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure set the mark for worst opening of any movie in history that opened in between 2,000 and 2,5000 theaters.

This Teletubbies-like kids flick brought in $448,131. Total. That's an average of $200 per screen for a movie that reportedly cost $20 million to make and $40 million to market.
