King Arthur makes lacklustre impact at US box office

16 Mai 2017

While it is clear that any talk of a new James Bond is purely speculation at this point that has not stopped the rumors and the King Arthur actor had no problem talking about them while visiting with Conan O'Brien. "PECLB001453-topic.html" class="local_link" >Robert Downey Jr.

The movie, which also features a cameo appearance from retired soccer star David Beckham, could make a £100 million loss, making it one of the worst-performing movies of 2017. The film's global gross now stands at $380 million with overall worldwide box office collections $633 million. (The Disney and Marvel sequel grossed $16.4 million on Friday alone, more than King Arthur did in its entire weekend.) Guardians Vol. 2 will finish Sunday with almost $250 million domestically and well north of $500 million globally.

The director, who is responsible for Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch and the latest Sherlock Holmes films, said: "That would get the party started mate!" With a budget around $175 million and less than $20 million on its opening weekend, the film is set to be a huge loss for the studio and has already triggered a slew of opinion pieces theorizing why the film is struggling.

The collections of the sequel show an improvement on the average for first sequels in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and better than the second weekend holds for Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 2 and Thor: The Dark World, notes Box Office Mojo.

The first "Guardians" debuted with $94 million in its first three days and fell 55% in its second weekend.

While it didn't have a stellar debut, FOX's comedy "Snatched" did manage to take second-place overall on the domestic charts, pulling-in $17.5M overall. Last summer, David Yates' Tarzan reboot opened to middling reviews and $38 million at the U.S. box office. Snatched fell behind Schumer's Trainwreck, which opened to $30.6 million in July 2015.

Fox's "The Boss Baby" continues to overperform, rounding out the Top 5 with a further $965,000 from 2,911 theaters.

Just outside the new top five, Eva Longoria and Demian Bichir's new film, Lowrider, has become a hit on limited release, taking eighth place in the new box office top 10. That sentiment squares with the B+ Cinemascore that the primarily male audience gave the movie.

Sadly, "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" is a Warner Bros. project, and as such, its release has been an embarrassing parade of poor decisions - or would be embarrassing if enough people knew or cared it was coming out.
