USA box office: The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Birds and Snakes won.  The result was disappointing
It was not a successful weekend for new releases that are sequels to the series. Both sold worse than their predecessors. And the new Marvel show set another infamous record.

As expected, the number one film at the US box office is a youth offering “The Hunger Games: Song of Birds and Snakes.” Unfortunately, with a $44 million gross, the film sold below expectations. It was hoped that the opening would exceed $50 million.

However, Lionsgate will not lose out on the film. And all thanks to the smart production financing model. According to Deadline, the PLN 100 million budget was covered by 65% ​​by the sale of foreign licenses. The studio also received support worth PLN 20 million from Germany.

However, it is difficult to talk about reviving the brand. All four previous films had openings exceeding $100 million. “The Ballad of Birds and Snakes” grossed as much over the weekend as the lowest-selling film “Mockingjay. Part 2” did in a single day. (Including Thursday previews, of course).

Animation came in second place “Trolls 3”. In this case, the comparison is a little more difficult, because the sequel was not released theatrically in America, but was broadcast immediately via streaming. However, the trio’s sum is $30.6 million The result was much worse than that recorded by the “trolls” seven years ago ($46.6 million).

The film will have a hard time coming close to its $153.7 million gross “Trolls”Because on Wednesday, an animated film directed to the same target group will be shown in cinemas “he wishes”. Universal has to keep their fingers crossed that the Disney movie fails.

Sony’s management has much greater reason to be complacent. “Thanksgiving Night” Z He will definitely make money. this At a cost of 15 million dollars The slasher has already grossed $10.2 million.

The fourth grandmother is “the first goal”, which was produced for similar money to “The Purge Night” ($14 million). Unfortunately, it failed to attract similar crowds. After the first three days of the show, there was only $2.5 million in his account.

At the same time for “Marvels” There is no longer any salvation. After the MCU’s record opening, some may have thought the second weekend drop would be mild. Nothing similar! The film lost as much as 78%, the largest drop in its second weekend among all Marvel Studios productions. In this case you can’t even be sure “Marvels” It will reach $100 million.

In contrast, in limited distribution, it’s off to a good start “Saltburn”. The film debuted in seven theaters and scored an average of 45.1 thousand. dollar. this year Only five films boasted a higher per-theater average.
