You may need to set your ZOOM feature for "Gargantuan" to see numbers this tiny: Here's a B.O. MoJo LINK to the Daily Grosses page for "One of 2013's Biggest Box Office Disappointments" (i.e. BOMBS!) the $130 million sci-fi/action fiasco R.I.P.D.

UPDATE from Head RAZZberry: This morning's L.A. Times article on weekend grosses drove the proverbial Final Nail into the coffin of this film's chances, with the following remarks: 

“Will R.I.P.D. go down as the biggest flop of the summer? It's hard to make the distinction, given the number of big-budget misfires that have landed in theaters this season. But according to distributor Universal Pictures, the $130-million action-comedy grossed just $12.8 million, only good enough for a seventh-place finish.

Is that worse than the recent $29.2-million launch for the $225-million THE LONE RANGER? Depends on how you slice it. But either way, the opening for R.I.P.D. is bad — especially when you consider that the 3-D film starring Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges lost out to THE CONJURING, a horror film that only cost $20 million to produce.”
