Last weekend, only one loud premiere took place in American cinemas - the long-awaited "Birds of Prey" arrived on the big screens. And although Harley Quinn put the bad guys down with one left, the blockbuster's early results leave much to be desired.|
Top 5 US box offices for February 7-9 are as follows:
1. "Birds of Prey: The Fantastic Story of Harley Quinn"
Week at the box office: 1
Added: $ 33.3 million
Total box office: $ 33.3 million
Sank / Rise: - (-)
Judging by the reviews, Katie Yan's film comics can be classified as underrated by the audience. Critics liked Birds of Prey, but failed to fly to skies. Warner Bros. counted on a $ 45 million start, and the journalists predicted an even larger amount for the tape. As a result, Birds of Prey started worse than the failed Green Lantern ($ 53.2 million). This could be due to the R rating, and now the studio bosses will have to think carefully before releasing a new Suicide Squad with the same age limit.
2. Bad Boys Forever
Week at the box office: 4
Added: $ 12 million
Total box office: $ 166.3 million
Sank / Rise: -1 (-32.1%)
The action blockbuster has lost about a third of its audience in a week and is confidently moving towards the $ 200 million mark. In terms of home gross, the triquel will soon overtake John Wick III ($ 171 million), despite the fact that Bad Boys Forever have already taken the lead in the world box office.
Week at the box office: 7
Added: $ 9 million
Total box office: $ 132.5 million
Sank / Rise: -1 (-5.2%)
Sam Mendes' drama was left without an Oscar in the Best Picture category, but in anticipation of the ceremony, Americans rushed to the theaters to evaluate the potential winner at that time. Therefore, the drop in viewership of "1917" was only 5%, and this happens extremely rarely.
4. "The Amazing Journey of Dr. Dolittle"
Week at the box office: 4
Added: $ 6.7 million
Total box office: $ 64 million
Sank / Rise: -1 (-12.3%)
No matter how critics criticize "The Amazing Journey of Dr. Dolittle", the film manages to keep a good face in a bad game, and with the baggage of devastating reviews, it should have dropped out of the top 5 long ago, but it stayed among the best for four weeks. However, this is not such a big reason for joy, because the global collection of $ 158.7 million does not cover the huge budget of the painting ($ 175 million).
5. "Jumanji: The Next Level"
Week at the box office: 9
Added: $ 5.5 million
Total box office: $ 298.5 million
Sank / Rise: - (-7.8%)
After summing up the results of the previous weekend, it turned out that "Jumanji" did not leave the top five. Apparently, the blockbuster decided to hold out until the last, and nine weeks in the echelon of leaders is an excellent achievement. However, this agility was not enough to surpass the "Call of the Jungle", which earned $ 100 million more in the United States.
