Lisa Frankenstein on track for a disastrous $4 million opening; Argyll is not doing much better
Lisa Frankenstein is looming at the box office, with the horror scripted by Diablo Cody flipping on its way to a poor opening.
It looks like my box office predictions for Lisa Frankenstein they were a bit off, with early Deadline numbers suggesting that the retro 80s horror movie is dying at the box office. In fact, the Kathryn Newton/Cole Sprouse movie is looking at just a $4 million debut despite being open on more than 3000 screens. Of course he doesn’t do that much better than Jason Statham The Beewhich has been open for five weeks and is already on VOD.
The same thing works in Lisa FrankensteinIt is a favor that this budget was slim, an estimate of $14 million. However, that’s a rough opening when you consider the marketing costs. Critics were not kind to the film, which marks the directorial debut of Zelda Williams, daughter of the late great Robin Williams. Our own Tyler Nichols gave it a mediocre 6/10, praising Newton’s performance, but still found the film to be “sloppy” and “incoherent”.
Lisa Frankenstein‘Misfortune means that Matthew Vaughn Argyll gets bragging rights for holding the top spot at the box office for a second weekend. That said, with only about $6 million in it, that’s not much to brag about. It’s a movie with a price tag of $200 million, and it’s completely flopped at the box office, ending any hope for a franchise.
The rest of the weekend looks pretty slow, as expected, with the Super Bowl tomorrow. People don’t go to the movies but stay home to watch the big game instead. For now, it seems The Bee and Wonka the two are tied for third place, with an estimated $3.3 million each. Migration he should make around $3 million for a fifth place finish.
We’ll be back with a full wrap-up tomorrow, but in the meantime, let us know if you’re looking out for anything this weekend.
