The Flash’s Performance Continues To Disappoint At The Global Box Office
In its third week, The Flash failed to live up to its namesake, only grossing around $11.4 million from 13,548 screens in both domestic and foreign markets.
After entering the third week of broadcasting on the big screen, it was performance The flash it didn’t do as well at the box office as Warner Bros. Discovery would like. In its third week, the film grossed an estimated $11.4 million from 13,548 screens in both the domestic and foreign markets.
This brings his international earnings to $146.1 million and his global tally totals $245.3 million as of Sunday. The flash it only exceeded its production budget in its second week.
Directed by Andy Muschietti, this feature of the DC multiverse was considered one of the most important releases for David Zaslav and company, but now that the facts speak volumes, it turns out to be a dud.
The flash it turned out to be a major embarrassment for the studio, not only commercially but critically as well. The studio got too excited about the movie and screened it during CinemaCon, months before its actual release.
The movie then tried to capitalize on the publicity from celebrities like Tom Cruise and Stephen King, who watched the movie before its release and later talked about how good the movie was for their fans.
However, the box office performance proved that moviegoers were disappointed in the film. The first week saw average reviews and an even less impressive box office, while the second week brought the worst second-weekend drop in the history of the superhero genre.
Despite the new management, the movies that have come out of DC studios are holdovers from the DCEU lineup. The studio hasn’t seen a hit despite the movies. like Black Adam, Shazam! The fury of the gods appeared on many big screens. The Flash has suffered a most troubling fate for a number of reasons.
The main star of the film, Ezra Miller, has been involved in a lot of legal trouble in the last year. Furthermore, James Gunn’s plans for his new Gods and Monsters line also make fans less concerned about the movie, along with the uncertain fate of his hero in the upcoming movies.
