Billy Eichner Responds After Bros Underperforms In Its Opening Weekend

0

The early box office numbers are in, and the news for director Nicholas Stoller’s Bros is not good. Competing against writer/director Parker Finn’s horror movie Smile, the romantic comedy opened in fourth place and only made $4.8 million. While the movie is a special and unique celebration of LGBTQ+ culture on the big screen, has earned rave reviews, and there were hopes to see a resurgence for R-rated comedies, it’s hard to disguise the results as anything but disappointing. 

In recognition of that reality, writer and star Billy Eichner has published a heartfelt statement in multiple parts on his personal Twitter page. He began the thread by noting that he surreptitiously attended a screening of Bros on Saturday night in Los Angeles and was elated to find the packed crowd loving his work. Regardless of the box office, he starts his message by noting that he is “VERY proud” of what he has made:

Last night I snuck in and sat in the back of a sold out theater playing BROS in LA. The audience howled with laughter start to finish, burst into applause at the end, and some were wiping away tears as they walked out. It was truly magical. Really. I am VERY proud of this movie.
