Barrymore’s whale movie flops as Chronicle and Woman in Black soar

The movie, based on a real-life story, brought in a lowly $8.5 million (£5.3 million) during its opening weekend – almost $14 million (£8.75 million) behind newly-released hits The Woman in Black and Chronicle.

Chronicle, which follows the exploits of a group of teenagers with superpowers, led the box office with $22 million (£13.8 million) and Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe’s thriller The Woman in Black also had a big debut with $21 million (£13.1 million) to come in a close second.
