'Steve Jobs' Movie Bombs

Are any of you really wondering why the latest Steve Jobs movie bombed? It has nothing to do with reviews, director or the acting, it's the fact that there have been several terrible movies like this already. I bet it will do great on rental.

After racking up the year’s best per-screen average in its opening weekend and doing strong business in limited expansion, "Steve Jobs" hit a stumbling block in its national release. It debuted to a measly $7.3 million, only a little more than the $6.7 million that "Jobs," a critically derided film about the iPhone father with Ashton Kutcher, made in its initial weekend. Going into the weekend, some tracking suggested that the picture would do as much as $19 million.
