The Little Things scored a number one box office debut after earning $4.8 million. Denzel Washington, Rami Malek, and Jared Leto star in the neo-noir crime thriller, which was written and directed by John Lee Hancock. Globally, The Little Things was able to earn a grand total $7.6 million. The news comes after it was revealed that more and more movie theaters in North America are closing their doors, due to the public health crisis.
While movie theater chains are suffering due to the pandemic, AMC Theatres saw a stroke of good luck this past week, thanks to Reddit and the continued stock market game that has erupted into a cultural phenomenon. AMC’s stock rose nearly 300% as Redditors targeted it as an underperforming stock being short sold. AMC has been able to turn things around and 2021 is looking promising. Let’s just hope that the public health crisis starts to fade in the coming months.
