Jennifer Aniston’s Wanderlust Bombs at the Box Office


Her love life may be hotter than ever, but Jennifer Aniston's career appears to be at a standstill.

The actress' new movie Wanderlust tanked in its opening weekend, debuting at No. 8 with $6.6 million. The film, which also stars her real-life love Justin Theroux, reunited Aniston, 43, with her longtime pal Paul Rudd, 42, her costar in 1998's The Object of My Affection.

Aniston hasn't had a No. 1 box office debut since her appearance in the 2009 ensemble rom-com He's Just Not That Into You.

Box office revenue was up more than 25 perfect from the previous year, with Act of Valor — featuring real-life Navy SEALS — taking the top spot with a $24.7 million opening. Tyler Perry's Good Deeds, costarring Gabrielle Union and Thandie Newton, debuted in No. 2 with $16 million.

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island came in third with $13.5 million, Safe House finished in fourth with $11.4 million and The Vow rounded out the top five with $10 million.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance earned $8.8 million for a sixth place finish, while Reese Witherspoon's This Means War (No. 7) earned $8.5 million in its second weekend.

The weekend's other new release, the Amanda Seyfried-led Gone, took in measly $5 million and debuted in ninth place. The film also stars Sebastian Stan, Jennifer Carpenter, Daniel Sunjata and Wes Bentley. Disney's animated film The Secret World of Arrietty took in $4.5 million for 10th place finish, bringing its two-week total to $14.7 million.
