Jessica Simpson Is A Box-Office Superstar
Jessica Simpson's theatrical blockbuster "Blonde Ambition" managed to make around $1,200 this past weekend. Her movie opened on just 8 screens in Texas. That's about 50 clams a day for each screen which means 6 people showed up to each showing. In total around 150 actually showed total.
Unfortunately, it looks like Jessica Simpson didn't beat the record of the lowest-grossing film in history. Last year a movie called "Zyzzx Road" starring Katherine Heigl opened on one screen in Dallas. It made $30 total for one full weekend, but the bulk of its money came from its opening night which grossed the movie $20.
Ugh, Jessica can't even win the title of the lowest-gross film in history!
