'Turistas' Box Office: Sign of Trouble?

December 6, 2006 -- Fox Atomic's "Turistas" had a bad weekend at the box office, prompting rival filmmaker Eli Roth to call it an "atomic bomb" in his blog. As put by Box Office Mojo: "The weekend's other new wide releases, Turistas and National Lampoon's Van Wilder: The Rise of Taj, were negligible. Turistas had a premise like Hostel and many other recent horror movies but a fraction of the audience, attracting a mere $3.6 million at 1,570 locations. Distributor 20th Century Fox acquired Turistas for $4 million and positioned it as the first picture from its new youth label, Fox Atomic."

Meanwhile, "Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning" has generated a little less than $40 million at the box office, which sounds good, but it's really not so good compared to the $80 million of the 2003 relaunch of the franchise. These numbers don't look good for this type of "travelers get nailed by poor people" subgenre of horror.

ESplatter.com just scored a slew of unseen images from this tourists-in-trouble terror film. Stockwell is best known for chick flicks like "Blue Crush" and "Crazy Beautiful." We'll see how he handles horror. Here are some giant-sized JPGs from the pic, which is hitting screens Dec. 1, stars Melissa George, and is thankfully Rated R:
