Birds of Prey (or, uh, Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey) earned $1.92 million on its third Friday, losing 700 theaters and dropping 69% from last Friday’s potentially Valentine’s Day-inflated day-eight gross. The $82 million DC Films flick has earned $67.44 million after 15 days and should earn around $6.7 million (-61%) over the weekend. That’ll give it a $72 million 17-day cume. No, that’s not a great hold, and it’s going to be smushed by Invisible Man next weekend. An $85 million domestic cume is now probably the best-case-scenario. All hope for Warner Bros. now lies with Wonder Woman 1984, In the Heights and Tenet in June and July.

My estimates for domestic and international were slightly lower, with a max combined of $15M.

wifey dragged me to the theater yesterday for this...it was fine but nothing amazing. I didn't really like some of the ways characters were changed but that really isn't a criticism of the movie, more what I wanted. Wifey loved the spectacle of it. Some bad plot decisions just to get you to the cute ending but all in all not a waste of my time. (Is that a sterling recommendation or what...not a waste of my time!)

only 17 days in, may still be too early to call but it's not looking terribly promising compared to other R rated CB movies.  Edited for actual $6.8MM weekend :golfclap:

xD

So the 'worse than Cats and Dark Phoenix' didn't stick because now Birds of Prey passed 2.0X production budget after an extremely low start. So what's the next move?

'Let's compare it to all recent comic book R-Rated films!

:insane:

Let's see if the comparisons make sense:

  • Films released in February?
    • Deadpool 2/12/16 
    • Logan 3/3/17
    • Deadpool 2 5/10/18
    • Joker 10/4/19
  • Female lead films on that list? 0
  • Female team films on that list? 0
  • Are there female lead or team R-Rated movies similar (or close)? Anna, Atomic Blonde, Kill Bill: Vol 1, Kill Bill: Vol 2, Lucy, Peppermint, Red Sparrow, The Kitchen, Underworld
  • How many of those female lead or team R-Rated movies are based on comic books: Atomic Blonde (GN: The Coldest City), The Kitchen (Ollie Masters and Ming Doyle series)

It would appear Atomic Blonde is the money-maker of the logical trio with that extremely low budget and Charlize Theron as the dangerous lead. BOP will never catch up to that revenue ratio figure.

But congrats to @paperheart for the effort. :golfclap:

I saw this yesterday and liked it. 

It is a little short and kinda needed a bit more but for what it was, it was pretty good.

action scenes were top notch - you can tell the John Wick influence

Dang, Bosco.

You're bending yourself into a dang pretzel trying to defend this film.

You might as well have said,

"Compare it to recent R-rated superhero films? Unfair! You can only compare it to female-led R-rated action films released during February of a Leap Year under a Wolf Moon in the Year of the Rat"

 

The truth is...people just...didn't...want...to...see..it.

Dang Gatsby, no bending necessary when you see people purposely trolling a film for no other reason other than to be negative. Including when they don't even care for the content in question (e.g. MCU fan attacking a WB/DC film).

You've done the same thing with films, all behind the veil of 'I'm just trying to protect others from having to suffer seeing this thing' (RE: Batman v Superman). I guess it's an outlook on life.

The truth is, a portion of the audience DID want to see the film. WB goofily blocked a portion with an R-Rating, leading to that portion most probably seeing it via torrent sites.

To be fair, it's already made more than the ~$71 million the R-rated Blade film made back in 1998.

Could they be going for a Once Upon A Deadpool approach?

Interesting that the Japanese title prioritizes: "Harley Quinn" first.

They must have gotten the memo.
