George Clooney's 'Solaris' and Brad Pitt's 'Killing Them Softly' only non-horror films to score an F CinemaScore

After receiving a rare F CinemaScore from moviegoers, Brad Pitt's independent crime drama Killing Them Softly opened nationwide to a soft $7 million from 2,424 theaters, coming in No. 7.

Directed by Andrew Dominik, the violent crime drama becomes only the eighth movie ever to receive the failing grade. Killing Them Softly and George Clooney's Solaris are the only nonhorror titles among the bunch.

Pitt's Plan B production company produced the $15 million Killing Them Softly, based on George V. Higgins' 1974 book Cogan's Trade, with Inferno Entertainment and Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures, which put up some of the financing. The Weinstein Co. is distributing domestically.

The movie stars Pitt as professional enforcer Jackie Cogan, who is charged with investigating a robbery at a mob-protected poker game. It also stars Ray Liotta, James Gandolfini and Sam Shepard.

"It is a daring and bold movie and deserved a wide release," Weinstein Co.'s head of distribution Erik Lomis said.

The weekend after Thanksgiving generally is dominated by holdovers, and this year was no exception

I thought it looked good...too bad. I know Solaris did't do well but as the years have gone by it has gained an audience. Maybe this will too...

I was blown away while watching Solaris in the cinema for
the first time, it was so atmospheric and George's acting was amazing.
I know people who walked out because they mistakenly thought it was an "exciting space film."
They would then put bad reviews of the film about because of their misunderstanding of it.
