Liam Neeson’s thriller Honest Thief takes home a modest $ 3.7 million as the US box office continues its anemia
Liam Neeson scored first place at the US box office last weekend with his new movie Honest Thief.
The thriller made a paltry $ 3.7 million, making it one of the weakest box office reports in years, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The disappointing numbers arrive now that movie theaters have reopened in Seattle and after an announcement from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo that theaters outside of New York City could reopen if they meet safety criteria.
