‘Morbius‘ hit theaters last weekend surpassing $100 million at the worldwide box office, but the film had a drastic drop at the box office in its second weekend.
According to Forbes, the film grossed only US$ 2.95 million on its second Friday, a Homeric drop of 83% – drawing with ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix‘ among the biggest slumps of HQ movies.
The film should end its second weekend with just $9.9 million, another record drop for a comic book movie. This represents a drop in 75% regarding the debut of $39 million last weekend.
the film cost $75 millions to be done and the worldwide box office should reach $129 million until the end of the weekend, preventing the film from being considered a complete failure.
“The only reason this isn’t a disaster is that it cost closer to the first X-Men than the last X-Men,” Forbes explained.
in the plot, Jared Leto transforms into the enigmatic antihero Michael Morbius. Critically ill with a rare blood disorder and determined to save others suffering the same fate, Dr. Morbius risks everything on a desperate gamble. And although at first everything seems an absolute success, a darkness arises that unleashes within him. Will good overcome evil – or will Morbius succumb to his mysterious new desires?
