Box-Office analysis: can 'Deepwater Horizon' be rescued?

In January 2014, Pete Berg's war pic Lone Survivor became a sleeper box-office hit, opening nationwide to $37.4 million on its way to earning $154.8 million worldwide after costing a relatively modest $40 million to make. The Universal movie, based on the true story of a U.S. Navy SEALs team fighting in Afghanistan, boasted an ensemble cast led by Mark Wahlberg.
