Uma Thurman Motherhood Movie $131 Box Office Opening *Sponsored Links* Uma Thurman Motherhood Movie $131 Box Office Opening It appears as if Uma Thurman does not have the draw that she once did after starring in some very successful Quentin Tarrantino movies, including Pulp Fiction, and Kill Bill. She recently agreed to star in another movie, Motherhood, in which she plays an overly stressed New York mother who just can not seem to control her crazy life. However, the movie was not as successful as many had hoped it would be, not by a long shot. The movie only pulled in an embarrassing $131 box office dollars during its opening weekend. This makes the movie one of the most unsuccessful movie releases featuring a big name actor or actress in the history of British Cinema. It is estimated that less than twenty people watched the movie on its opening weekend. There are a number of reasons why the movie may have done so poorly. Many have speculated that the poor turn out may be because there was basically no dollars left over for advertising once the movie was created. The creators of the movie had largely banked on Thurmans star power to recoup the money that they had spent in order to make the under-performing film. There was no comment by representatives for either Thurman or the studio that put the movie out. The movie itself is a remake of a movie that was released in the 1980s, a movie that was able to do much better during its opening weekend in the box office. The movie was not well received by critics either, who determined that the movie was under-budgeted and the story line could have been so much more with a few minor tweaks in different areas throughout the movie.
