Bullet Train is a real gravy train.
The action comedy, starring Brad Pitt as a hapless assassin who encounters his enemies while riding the world’s fastest train, took home over $12.6 million on opening night, according to IMDB’s Box Office Mojo.
The money-making film – which The Post dubbed a “sexy, gory crime comedy” – is set to enjoy a $30 million debut over the weekend, according to Variety.
“DC League of Super-Pets,” which opened July 29, was relegated to second place and grossed $3.35 million — a significant departure from the $9.3 million it posted deserved the night it hit theaters.
The Warner Bros. animated film, starring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart and John Krasinski, received an “absolutely pawsome” review from the Wall Street Journal last week.
Actor-director Jordan Peele’s horror film Nope, which Time called “penetrating and hugely ambitious,” came third with just over $2.5 million.
Thor: Love and Thunder, which recently set a record for the lowest-rated Thor movie on Rotten Tomatoes, was fourth at $2.2 million, followed by Minions: The Rise of Gru with taking nearly $2.1 million in fifth place.
