Hex has Worst DC Opening Since Steel

Click on the chart and get ready to laugh. Although Jonah Hex beat out Marvel's 2008 third attempt at the Punisher (barely), you have to go way back to 1997 and Shaq Fu's sub-million dollar opening weekend to find a worse opening for DC. Even Supergirl (1984) and Superman IV (1987) opened stronger in uninflated dollars. Even 2008's The Spirit opened bigger with an embarrassing $6.5 million! Luckily Hex will get a second chance on the Batman: Under the Red Hood animated DVD. That Jonah Hex short may give the character back some dignity, but its unlikely Jonah will be back on the silver screen anytime soon... or ever.
