The following is an excerpt from a Los Angeles Times blog on the opening box office figures for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson’s latest big-screen effort, "Faster."

"CBS Films had hoped that with "Faster," its third release, it would find its first hit by appealing to men on a weekend dominated with female-centric movies. But the R-rated action film had the slowest start of any new picture. Still, it cost CBS and its partner Sony Pictures only $24 million to make, meaning it’s far from a financial disaster. And although the CinemaScore was a disappointing C+, "Faster" was the only new movie to see ticket sales improve every day from Wednesday through Saturday, usually a sign of good word-of-mouth."

For those who want it short-and-simple, "Faster" has earned $12.2 million since opening on Wednesday, November 24th.
