Recently released “Tomorrowland” directed by Brad Bird might just have exceeded its fellow competitors by a very close margin. Unfortunately, the film didn’t quite stand up to expectations.
According to Hollywood Reporter, “Tomorrowland” has narrowly pulled ahead of “Pitch Perfect 2” at the Memorial Day box office with a three-day collection at $32.2 million and an approximate figure of $41.7 million for movie giant Disney. It is also expected that this year around the Memorial Day revenues will be low as compared to last year’s revenues because just last year this time around “X-Men: Days of Future Past” had opened to massive revenues of $90.8 Million.
Another problem that the “Tomorrowland” movie faces is to recover the amount that had been put in making the movie. It was reported earlier that the Sci-fi adventure movie was made on a humongous budget of $180 Million.
With a budget this big, the producers of the movie also had quite an unaggressive approach for the movie in the international markets as the international collections of the movie haven’t been impressive too. The movie grossed $26.7 million out of 65 markets including the second weekend where the movie’s collections was unfortunately left behind “Pitch Perfect 2” and “Mad Max: Fury Road.” Talking about international markets, in the UK “Tomorrowland” grossed $2.1 million, which was less compared to $4.3 million and $2.2 million that “Pitch Perfect 2” and “Mad Max: Fury Road” collected.
Things still aren’t that bad for Disney whose other movie “Avengers: Age of Ultron” completed $400 Million, something that last year “Frozen” and “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” achieved. Hopefully “Tomorrowland” too will be on the verge of achieving big at the box office.
