Although we are only in the second week of 2019, the year has its first flop at the official box office in the science fiction thriller "Replicas" directed by Keanu Reeves.
The film opened this weekend for only $ 2.5 million out of 2,329 screens. According to TheWrap, that number is almost half the projected $ 4.7 million. In addition to being considered the first official box office flop of the new year, "Replicas" is the lowest opening for a film with Reeves that has been opened on more than 1,000 screens

Although it's a bad start in 2019 for the former "Matrix" star, it's still ready for a pretty big and successful year. In May, the third installment of his popular franchise "John Wick" will fall. TheWrap notes that previous assassin series films have grossed $ 259 million worldwide from a combined $ 60 million budget.
