Final Thought – Cinema Releases 22 February 2019 & Box Office
Liam Neeson’s action thriller film Cold Pursuit lands in UK cinemas this week. Following his recent comments many have claimed that the film which released in the USA last week failed at the box office due to that interview. However the film actually achieved its box office revenue target of $7-10 million by taking over $11 million. You’ve got to love how certain media websites deliberately misreport stories these days. It will however be interesting to see if cinema goers in the United Kingdom mirror those in America.
