The Flash may have sped his way to the top of the box office, but it’s not the victory anyone hoped for.
The Flash came in first this week with $55.1M at the domestic box office. Estimated had pegged it for $70M over the three days, so this number is disappointing to many to say the least. It took in $75M in the foreign sales for an opening weekend total of $130.1M globally. Analysts are predicting a final global total of just over $300M off of a $200M budget.
Second place went to Elemental with $29.5M, the lowest opening ever for a Pixar film. It took in $15M in foreign sales for an opening weekend total of $44.5M from a $200M budget. Current estimates are saying its final total will be a loss for Disney.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse took third place with $27.8M for a new domestic total of $280.38M. It has taken in $209M in the foreign markets for a global total of $489.38M.
Fourth place this week went to Transformers: Rise of the Beasts with $20M, a massive drop of 67% from its opening weekend. The domestic total now stands at $100.62M. It has taken in $174.3M from the foreign markets for a global total of $274.92M.
The Little Mermaid rounded out the top five with $11.6M for a new domestic total of $253.55M. It has taken in $212.4M in the foreign markets for a global total of $465.95M.
This week’s wide releases are God is a Bullet and No Hard Feelings, while Asteroid City and Past Lives expand into wide releases.
