Jennifer Lawrence's 'mother!' earns a rare F rating on CinemaScore

Jennifer Lawrence's 'mother!' earns a rare F rating on CinemaScore

Since her Best Actress Oscar-nominated turn in the 2010 backwoods thriller Winter's Bone, Lawrence's star has risen dramatically in Hollywood, by helping The Hunger Games franchise earn almost $3 billion at the global box office and three more Oscar nominations (including a Best Actress win for Silver Linings Playbook). Aronofsky made sure that his audience knows he is not pleased with the way Christians are acting in this world.

It suggested that one reason mother! might have received the low rating is something that Jennifer pointed out during her Late Night With Seth Meyers interview on Thursday: The movie isn't exactly a horror even though it's billed as one.

Jennifer Lawrence is starting to become less broody as she gets older and it's starting to worry her. But as director Darren Aronofsky explains, 'Mother!' is more of an allegory or fable than a straight-forward narrative. By the time digital sales, Blu-ray/DVD and the rest of the box office is factored in, they should still break even.

Including Aronofsky's film, there are only a few dozen or so titles slapped with the failing grade, many of which had trouble grossing over $15 million at the domestic box office.

Don't get me wrong, some of the imagery in "mother!" is as brutal and intense as anything you've ever seen, but most of it is more overwrought than especially chilling.

In her latest photoshoot, the attractive woman is once again exploring the spirit of motherhood. But the $30 million film still only managed to take in around $8 million during its opening weekend, marking the worst wide release opening in Lawrence's career.

The filmmaker admits the movie's cast - which also includes Javier Bardem, Ed Harris, and Michelle Pfeiffer - might make audiences believe the project is lighter than it actually is, and always knew it was going to be "a lot" for viewers. American Assassin came in second place with a modest $14.8 million, but the real shocker was Darren Aronofsky's mother!

Don't say I didn't warn you. A movie's overall CinemaScore can range from A+ to F. "Let's think about this!' I'm also guilty, I'm not any better".
