Stronger is destined to be as big of a bomb at the box office as the Boston Marathon bombings were in real life.
The first film about the horrific terrorist attack, Patriot’s Day, bombed at the box office, (with the exception of Boston moviegoers going to see the film).
This film will be no different. No one wants to pay money to see relive what they saw on TV, happening in real time, for free.
The movie Stronger tells the story of a victim (Jake Gyllenhaal, who also produced the movie) of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013 who helps the police track down the killers while struggling to recover from devastating trauma.
It just goes to show that most executives at movie studios have zero intelligence or any knack for what they are paid millions to do; try and pick movies that will not be disasters at the box office.
