    Bullet Train‘ stars Brad Pitt, Joe King, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson among others. The film has collected a total of around $54.4 million at the domestic box office.

    Made on a production budget of about $90 million, the film has grossed $114.5 million in total. It might seem great news but it’s actually not.

    Despite no big releases lined up this week, ‘Bullet Train‘ saw a drop of 55 percent in its second week. It also led the top chart with a gross of $13.4 million which is the lowest figure for a chart-topper film this year.

    The Brad Pitt-starrer is also the last major Hollywood release of summer. It seems that the industry will take some more time to recover from the pandemic. Tom Cruise’s ‘Top Gun: Maverick‘ is so far the most successful money spinner of 2022. It has grossed more than one billion at the box office.

    When asked about collaborating with David, Brad said: “That’s right, he was my stunt double on ‘Fight Club’ we met. And he trained me for those fights and in a way, he’s helping me develop the character.

    Brad further added: “And now he’s a director with his own voice and own vernacular. I’m serving him, he’s the boss“.

    The ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith‘ actor concluded, “So there’s like a beautiful symmetry for two old friends.” David served as a stunt performer and stunt coordinator for many years.
