Katie Holmes' 'The Son of No One' bombs at Sundance, guests flee screening
Her hyped portrayal of Jackie O in "The Kennedys" fell out of favor at The History Channel, before quickly being snubbed by most other pay cable networks, and now her big showing at Sundance is prompting the label of "bomb" from multiple outlets.
The Hollywood Reporter says that a Jan. 24 screening of Holmes' "The Son of No One" -- which also includes Al Pacino, Ray Liotta, Juliette Binoche and Channing Tatum -- started without a packed house and ended with an even smaller audience.
"The negative response went beyond the walkouts," writes THR of the crime thriller's awkward debut. "One viewer's attempt to begin applause after the lights came up drew almost no takers."
