(Newser) – Brad Pitt got a taste of life on the D-list this weekend, with his worst opening weekend since 1994: Killing Them Softly pulled in an anemic $7 million, distantly behind Breaking Dawn: Part 2's $17.4 million, Skyfall's $17 million, and Lincoln's $13.5 million, reports the LA Times. And not only did nobody go see Killing Them Softly, but those who did apparently hated it; CinemaScore gave the gangster flick an F rating. "We're disappointed, and there's no getting around that,” says a Weinstein Co. rep, who adds, "people just didn't like the movie."
