Lisa Joy’s directorial debut earned only $2 million (£1.4 million) over the weekend.

Reminiscence, Hugh Jackman’s latest film, has become one of the biggest box office flops of all time. The post-apocalyptic thriller earned only $2 million (£1.4 million) in North America despite playing on 3265 screens.

It has one of the lowest box office totals for a wide release film, earning less than numerous films that debuted during the peak of the pandemic.

The Lisa Joy-directed film grossed less than half as much as Russell Crowe’s thriller Unhinged and Liam Neeson’s latest action film, Honest Thief, which both grossed more than $4 million (£3.4 million) in their opening weekends.

Reminiscence has also received negative reviews from critics, with the film currently holding a 37% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and being compared unfavourably to Inception and Blade Runner.
