Super Bowl weekend, in which the biggest TV event of the year occurs, is usually a slow time for moviegoing. But this year’s marked the lowest collective haul ever  – $42 million – for the weekend that coincides with the big game, according to Comscore.

The top movie was the spy thriller “Argylle,” and in second place was the newcomer “Lisa Frankenstein.”

“Argyle” brought in $6.5 million, which was a 62% decline from its disappointing debut.

After two weeks of release, the film has brought in $28.8 million at the domestic box office and a just $60 million total.

The cost to produce the  film was $200 million, which Variety magazine says makes it  the year’s first big flop.

“Lisa Frankenstein” is a horror comedy debut with $3.8 million in domestic revenue, but Focus Features spent just $13 million to make the film.
