Justin Bieber 'Believe' Doc Disapoints at Box Office

According to Billboard, Justin Bieber's second concert documentary 'Believe' is turning in a dismal performance at the Christmas box office, where it has earned only $3.1 million in its first three days. On Friday, it fell below $1 million to $790,000 for a 14th place finish.  Believe is now only expected to take in $4.5 million over the course of its five-day debut (Wednesday through Sunday), including a meek weekend haul of $2.2 million. Granted, the movie is said to have cost only $5 million to make, but 'Believe' will do only a fraction of the business that Bieber's 'Never Say Never' enjoyed in February 2011.  The film may only take in $4.5 million in its first-five days, which is by far the worst showing among concert documentaries featuring the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus and One Direction.

Sidebar: This happens to every teen idol. He can't be hot forever. I bet over time Justin will triple these numbers. He has some die hard fans.
