About the Film

U.S. Release Date: Mar. 11, 2016
U.S. Box Office: $56,010,797 (estimate as of Mar. 18\\27, 2016)

Why? Winstead, following her Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (2010) turn, picked up some awards recognition for Smashed (2012). Now that she’s given an acclaimed performance in an acclaimed film that’s also proven to be quite the hit, can she break through to an Oscar bid?

Why not? Genre bias. Early-year release.
