Pixar’s “Onward” rode meek endorsements from reviewers, even those without the guts to pan it, to the low end of its projected opening weekend take.
$40 million is peanuts, by Pixar standards. Would you like to bet Monday’s “actual” tally from the weekend is below Disney’s forecast for it? I am guessing $30s.
It only earned $28 million overseas
Parents decided not to brave rising Coronavirus fears to check it out.
“The Invisible Man” had a steady second weekend, dropping just under50% to add $15 million to its take.
Ben Affleck’s hoop dream, “The Way Back,” opened at $8.5 million, right in the middle of projections, per Box Pro.
“Sonic the Hedgehog” added another $8 million, clearing the $140 million mark since opening.
“The Call of the Wild” earned another $7 million.
“Emma.” made the most of its expanded release pulling in another $5 million
“Bad Boys for Life” cleared $3, sending it over the $200 million mark.
“Birds of Prey” keeps inching towards $90 million, adding another $2.1 this weekend ($83 or so all in).
“Brahms:;The Boy II” added another $1.5 million, bombing out at $11 and unlikely to reach $13.
“Jumanji” added another $1.3. over $31 overall.
Limited releases “Wendy,” “Portrait of a Lady On Fire,” the Mick Jagger art world thriller “The Burnt Orange Heresy,” “Burden” and “Greed” did so poorly per screen (especially “Greed,” in the $350 per screen range) that they will not be going I wider release. “Lady on Fire” keeps adding screens and losing audience.
Perhap the marketing should have been more sexist on that one. “Gorgeous Frenchwomen. Naked. Together.”
A24’s “First Cow” averaged $24k per screen. That one warrants a wider opening.
