It’s another week of another franchise movie. After The Marvels, this Friday saw the release of The Hunger Games: Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes. Although the film had the backing of the franchise, and had good pre-release buzz, the opening recorded at the North American box office is only decent. Keep reading to find out more!
Starting with last week’s holdover release, The Marvels, after disappointing at the box office, has once again seen an embarrassing update coming its way. Despite the blockbuster success of Captain Marvel, the film failed to deliver at the box office. It’s not even true when critics or audiences have rejected the content outright.
After starting at $46.11 million during its opening weekend at the North American box office, The Marvels is aiming for a second weekend of $9.7 million, which represents a whopping 79% drop. With this, the film has achieved the unenviable feat of registering the biggest second weekend drop in MCU history, according to the Deadline report.
On the second Friday, The Marvels added $2.8 million in total domestically, and by Sunday, the film will be doing business $64.5 million.
Coming to this week’s big release, The Hunger Games: Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes is off to a good start at the North American box office. On Friday, the film earned $19.1 million and is staying slightly lower than early projections $50 million or more. Now, it is expected to rake in $44-$46 million during the opening weekend at the local box office.
While on their own, the number looks good, but if we look at it after considering the epic success of The Hunger Games franchise, the score falls short of the mark. One good thing is that The Hunger Games: Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes is made on a budget $100+ millionso it will not be difficult to become a successful business.
The Hunger Games: Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes is the 5th installment of the franchise and serves as a prequel to The Hunger Games in 2012. This time, we will not see Jennifer Lawrence reprising her Katniss Everdeen character but we will see new faces like Tom Blyth and Rachel Zegler.
