Sony changed its estimates for the film, estimating it would come in at around 40 40 million, and other analysts estimated it would take 50 million or more. Those Expectations seemed low, especially in the foreground, but theaters are still trying to recover from the coronavirus epidemic and viewers may still be weak as the global health crisis continues.
However, “Venom: Let the Be Carnegie” didn’t slow down this weekend.
Thus, “Let the Bee Carnegie” defeated the original’s opening and did it during the epidemic and at a time when big movie streams at home became a new hub for studios. It got an audience despite the bad reviews from critics. Image score 58% on review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes.
“We are also pleased that Patience and Drama Monopoly has been rewarded by record results,” Tom Rothman, chairman and CEO of Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group, said in a statement Sunday. “I apologize to Mr. Twain: the death of the film has been greatly exaggerated.”
While having a few hit movies in recent years, October histor has historically never been a month known for big box office hits. In fact, it was a dead zone between the generally lucrative summer film season Tu and the acclaimed awards by holiday critics.
This October, however, is very different.
This month is simply extraordinarily jam-packed with major films like MGM’s recent James Bond film “No Time to Die” and Warner Bros. The sci-fi epic “Dune,” is a month that could tell a lot about the short and long term future of the movie theater business. (Warner Bros., such as CNN, is owned by Warner Media.)
In the end, this month could give Hollywood and industry observers a better idea if viewers are still willing to pack into theaters.
If “Venom: Let the Be Carnegie” is an indication, the answer seems to be a decisive yes.
