Scoop: Justin Bieber flick a box office bomb

The first tip-off was when Justin Bieber falsely announced he was “retiring” (twice!) in the last few weeks and no one really cared.

Now it looks like his latest documentary – can we really call it that? – “Believe” has bombed at the box office.

The Hollywood Reporter says the film made a dismal $3.1 million over the weekend, and debuted at 14th place. His previous film, 2011’s “Never Say Never, ” raked in $73 million and was the single most successful domestic concert film of all time.

We knew his reign of terror would be brief, but now it looks like it’s really reaching its end.BelieveFeaturesGossipJustin BieberNever Say Never
