In the movie, Liam is an Arizona rancher and former Marine who rescues a young boy from the clutches of a Mexican cartel.

The film earned $2.03 million for a running total for $6.09 million, according to the latest report.

Deadline also pointed out what’s happening with major movies amid the pandemic, and how that’s affecting theaters and release dates: “The major studios ran for the hills again, just like they did after the release of Tenet, pushing their Q1 titles seeing the bluesy Christmas results of Wonder Woman 1984 and News of the World. Yes, as we told you, this was to be expected in Q1 given how the virus is lingering despite the deployment of the current vaccine…scientists at Columbia University estimate that we’re bound to get 158M total infections if the current restrictions we have in the U.S. stay in place until late July. This could mean we go through another cycle of release date changes, and push theatrical further into the fall. We’ll see.”
