(Newser) – Remember when Christian Slater was hot? Neither does America. The onetime A-lister found a new basement in the box office this year with his presumably horrible horror flick, Playback. How bad are the stats? Playback played one theater for one week in March—and raked in a not-so-whopping $264. That's about 33 tickets sold, paying the mortgage on a $7.5 million budget, reports the Huffington Post, which also runs down some other box-office bombs from 2012.
