One movie had to be the first to play in newly reopened theatres and that honour went to “Unhinged” starring Russell Crowe.

The psychological thriller stars Crowe as an unhinged man who makes a woman named Rachel (Caren Pistorius) the target of his road rage.

As U.S. movie theatres are encouraged to open by U.S. President Donald Trump, the genre flick “Unhinged” was being billed as “the first new film to open in America’s movie theatres in accordance with state public health department safety guidelines,” according to a press release.

During opening weekend, the movie pulled in $4.06 in North America reports Comscore.

Following the first “new normal” weekend that also included “Spongebob: Sponge On The Run”, Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” will hit theatres on August 26.
