Dark Phoenix Could Lose as Much as $120 Million at the Box Office
So, yes, for those of you who may not know it, Director's Dark for the first time of Simon Kindberg Phoenix with James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Sophie Turner in the role of Jean Gray in cinemas last weekend and completely fell flat on his mutant face. With a $ 33 million gain in the country, the new film now holds the title of the lowest opening weekend ever recorded for the mutant Fox / Marvel franchise. And today, we have learned that things will only get worse for the movie. Finance experts say this phoenix will deplete with an estimated loss of between $ 100 million and $ 120 million.
This loss comes with the news that the film cost about $ 350 million + to produce everything. And yes, this figure would include all the rehearsals that pushed the film from its original release date of November 2018 to its final release last week. But supposedly, these new takes are not responsible in and of themselves for the failure of the movie. Obviously Dark Phoenix had fewer revisions than X-Men: First Class X-Men: The Days of the Future and X-Men: Apocalypse . But this has not been confirmed.
It is said that much of this Dark Phoenix failure comes from X-Men: Apocalypse being universally considered (until 1945). at this weekend) as the weakest film X-Men . But the pain does not end there for this new (and final) X-Men movie produced by Fox. Oh no. The film got the lowest score ever obtained with CinemaScore for the franchise and, as we have already pointed out, the new movie has the lowest score for Rotten Tomatoes, among all movies X-Men with a current rate of only 23%. Hell, same X-Men Origins – Wolverine managed to gain 37% in 2009, and this film is awful.
