‘Lyle, Lyle’ Stumbles, ‘Amsterdam’ Flops and ‘Traffier 2’ Crosses $1 Million | Techno Glob

In the news of the new release at the domestic box office, Columbia and Sony Lila, Lila Kamar It opened with a disappointing $11.5 million Fri-Sun frame. To be fair, Sony is projecting a $13.4 million Friday weekend (tomorrow is Columbus Day or Indigenous People’s Day), but frankly that would still be a bit low if it were just free-sun frames. . Of course, we all celebrate in February 2021 when Tom and Jerry It opened to $14 million. It was the first sign of theatrical life in the covid era, and it was the definition of a ‘successful pessimism’, a film performing in the covid era as well as under conventional circumstances. We’re close enough to the traditional Javier Bardem/Constance Wu (who was on his way to becoming a bit-in-the-seats star before Covid) not to grade a family-friendly comedy on such a curve.

It is similar to Sony Peter Rabbit: The Runaway, which opened with $10.1 million in June of 2021 under various Covid-specific conditions. Sadly, it looks like a scene where only viewers wanted to see it peter rabbit ($25 million in early 2018) doesn’t mean they were excited about the ‘animated animals interacting with live-action humans’ concept. Based on Bernard Weber’s 1965 picture book of the same name, Lila, Lila Kamar Not the brand awareness/interest of something like Clifford Big Red Dog or Paddington. While reviews were generally okay (68% fresh but 5.6/10 on Rotten Tomatoes, showing that the Tomatometer only tells half the story), it’s not making anyone outside of the ‘kids and their parents’ demographic. . People who sang songs The greatest showman It didn’t help the film any more than it did last year Dear Evan Hanson.

I expected this one to ‘overperform’, partly because of the other peter rabbit The movies were so good and why there hasn’t been a big kid since DC League of Super Pets At the end of July ($ 91 million from the beginning of $ 23 million). Between now and Walt Disney in theaters it’s the only flick exclusively for kids
strange worldso equal to the first on the feet peter rabbit ($110 million/$25 million) or even more Peter Rabbit 2 ($40 million/$10 million) wouldn’t shock me. I have no idea how this will perform in a foreign country. It doesn’t have it Paddington or peter rabbit Popularity of the British. It is possible that it will be just like a leg Clifford the big red dog ($49 million $16.6 million Fri-Sun and $22 million Wed-Sun debut) and ending / $35 million below. At worst, it’s a small miss that will play very well on Netflix

20th Century Studios’ $80 million Amsterdam (review) Tank, just $6.5 million in its domestic opening weekend. 1930’s comedy thrillers (with Kristen Bale, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Taylor Swift and Robert De Niro, among others) I really enjoyed. I would argue that it is Russell’s best film three kings However, I’m in the critical minority (33% and 5.1/10 on Rotten Tomatoes). Besides, it’s not late 2013. Audiences no longer show up for vaguely defined adult crime dramas like American Hustle ($250 million worldwide) Simply because it looks sensational and has many movie stars (Bell, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Lawrence, etc.). to do justice American Hustle Selling sex, however Amsterdam sell sell The marketing was somewhat vague about the actual plot, in part because explaining what the film is ultimately about in terms of real-world history would be tantamount to giving away the underlying mystery.

Moreover, the audience no longer goes to the movies to go to the movies. Unless you’re Leonardo DiCaprio or Sandra Bullock, you’re at best an added value element and/or playing a marquee role somewhat tied to your screen (Tom Holland in unknown) or off-screen (Lady Gaga in A star is born) personalities. This is slightly different from the late 2021 failure theater (off-hand). Last duel, last night in Soho And King Richard. It’s still a tragedy, no matter what you think of David O. Russell’s on-set behavior (reportedly quite volatile) or whether you like the movie. Disney spent money and worked, and both audiences and critics rejected this old-school studio programmer. Its (arguably inevitable) failure will only further the notion of Fox officially turning into anything more than a content mill for Hulu (save for a few franchises like Planet of the Apes, Avatar And Deadpool).

Focus Features released Todd Field’s string In only four plays. The popular and outrageous Cate Blanchett-starring melodrama about a world-class commander grossed $160,000 for a $40,000 per-theater average. I’m reluctant to assume that this movie will play outside of the nerd/arthouse crowd, but it will expand to 30 more theaters this Friday and widen on the 28th. It’s on my list but testing. I figured I could either drive to Century City on Friday and feel bad that I couldn’t pick my kids up from school or wait and enjoy myself. In other Oscars news, Bloody Tasting released Damien Lyon’s 138 Minutes, Unedited Terrible 2 (review) For a Thu-Mon theatrical engagement in 850 theaters. The sequel to the (relatively high) cult Killer Clown movie grossed $480,000 on Thursday and nearly $1 million over the weekend. This is despite the fact that each theater usually plays one or two evening shows. It will work, Art (joke). it will do
