So the story of this weekend at the box office was about how badly Ben-Hur did. It only grossed a little over $11 million this opening weekend, after being made at a price tag reported at over $100 million. Instead, Suicide Squad won the weekend.
A lot of theories are going around as to why this latest Ben-Hur movie tanked so horribly, but the one I liked the most was posted at Forbes: simply put, no one wanted to see it.
You know what? Sometimes, it really is as simple as that.
