MULAN sinking at box office in China..
How Disney got it wrong..

TENET LEADS A WEAK BOX IN WORLD OF PAIN

THE BOX OFFICE IS HURTING! CHRISTOPHER NOLAN’S TENET’ STRUGGLES DURING ITS SECOND WEEK.. And the box office is stumbling into the autumn.. MORE: Tenet made only $6.7 million during its second Friday-to-Sunday, which calculates to a 66.5 percent drop from weekend to weekend.. the film cost $200 mil to make. This movie have done huge numbers in any other year, besides a 2020 cursed release.. There has been a particular focus on Tenet‘s release given the fact was set up to be a guinea pig of sorts for the industry to get a grasp on the potential of releasing a big blockbuster movie during the on-going pandemic, and thus far the reaction hasn’t exactly been positive..

These numbers showcase the true world of hurt that movie chains and studios are in right now.. 70% of theaters in America are open right now, but major cities like LA and NYC are keeping theirs closed. And even of the buildings open, there are stringent rules for social distancing with mostly empty theater rooms.. This is also the reason why several films, including WONDER WOMAN 1984 have delayed October releases.. Just a few more weeks.. just a few more hopes. And maybe this will all get better.. Or maybe it won’t.
