BOX OFFICE: “Birds of Prey” open at $100 million…LESS than “Suicide Squad,” “Little Women” clear $100 million

Warner/DC’s lady birds bested “Bad Boys.” But the take, a measly $33 million, was 33-50% below projections.

That “Suicide Squad” hangover proves to be a bitch. That one opened at $133 million and comic book film fans haven’t forgotten.

For Margot Robbie and Co., at least the checks cleared. There aren’t likely to be any others in this franchise.

“Joker” I dare say the set the bar high but also scared some of the target audience away. More violent than fun seems to miss the comic book movie point.

“Bad Boys” and “1917” continue to add black ink, “Knives Out” is closing in on $175.

“Gentleman” fade, “The Rhythm Section” fades faster.

“Uncut Gems” will inch over the $50 million mark by mid week.

“The Lodge” had an impressive $13,000 per screen average. Will they open it any wider?
