The website's critical consensus reads: " John Travolta gives it his oddly coiffed all, but The Fanatic rings hollow as an examination of the way fan appreciation can curdle into toxic obsession."[7] On Metacritic, the film has a " Box Office : John Travolta Hits Career Low As ' The Fanatic ' Bombs ".

The Fanatic — starring Travolta as the obsessed fan of a movie star — marks the fourth bomb in a row for the actor.

Critics have ravaged the indie thriller, directed by Fred Durst, best known as the frontman for Limp Bizkit.

The Fanatic is the first title from Quiver Distribution, launched in May by former Lionsgate executive Jeff Sackman and Berry Meyerowitz, who founded Phase 4 films and more recently worked at eOne.

Quiver's aim is to release films across all platforms, both in cinemas and on digital. The Fanatic is only playing in a smattering of theaters before being made available on premium VOD Sept. 6. Still, the psychological thriller is faring even worse than Travolta's In a Valley of Violence (2016) and Killing Season (2013), both of which were also dual theatrical/VOD titles.

John Travolta mistakes drag queen Jade Jolie for Taylor Swift as he presents Video Of The Year award at MTV VMAs

John Travolta mistakes drag queen Jade Jolie for Taylor Swift as he presents Video Of The Year award at MTV VMAs Five years after mistakenly introducing Idina Menzel as the 'wickedly talented Adele Dazeem' at the Oscars, John Travolta has struck again with another cringe-worthy awards show moment. While presenting the Video Of The Year Award at the MTV VMAs Monday night alongside Queen Latifah, the Pulp Fiction star mistook drag queen Jade Jolie for pop sensation Taylor Swift. After Latifah announced Swift the winner of the award for her song You Need To Calm down, the 65-year-old actor turned to hand Jolie the moon man trophy.

John Travolta 's latest film has bombed at the US box office in its opening weekend. “Directed by schlocky hack director Fred Durst from a moronic script by Durst and David Bekerman, The Fanatic is meant to be a scary and touching valentine to the same festering memory of putrid Hollywood as

Gotti, starring John Travolta , tanked at the U.S. box office , earning only .6 million in its opening weekend. The biopic about the famous crime boss notoriously languished in development hell and was once viewed as a potential vehicle for director Barry Levinson and star Al Pacino.

In a Valley of Violence, also starring Ethan Hawke, took in $29,343 from 33 theaters on its first weekend before topping out at $53,647 (its opening day gross was $10,722). That was preceded by a three-day launch of $27,713 from 12 locations for Killing Season, co-starring Robert De Niro, which finished its brief run in theaters with $53,646.

Travolta insisted that his last movie, Gotti, receive a more traditional release, but it didn't help matters. Directed by Kevin Connolly, the 2018 mob biopic opened to $1.7 million from 503 locations before topping out at dismal $4.3 million domestically, the worst showing for a movie starring Travolta in a lead role.

The actor's last bonafide box office hit was Hairspray in 2007.

Durst's previous directing credits include the indie films The Education of Charlie Banks and The Longshots.

So far, Quiver isn't officially reporting grosses for The Fanatic.
