Nikke Finke, writing for Deadline Hollywood, says Oliver Stone’s “W” is in freefall at the box office after only one week of release:

There’s been tremdous interest by the public in the box office fate of Oliver Stone’s W. its second weekend in release. Well, it ran out of steam. QED International/Lionsgate’s Bush biopic sank 58% to No. 8 with $1.5 million Friday from 2,050 dates. The $30M negative cost film should end up with $23M domestic box office gross by the end of its run. That means, with a $25M P&A investment and Lionsgate’s distribution fees, the film won’t recoup its marketing costs.
