Ben-Hur Has Bad Opening Weekend

The numbers are in, and the newest versionĀ of Ben-Hur did not do well. In fact the movie barely made number 5, only making a little more than Pete’s Dragon. Ben-Hur had a shockingly large budget for the type of movie it is, but only managed to bring in just over 11 million. At this rate the movie is going to go down as a major commercial flop. Suicide Squad once again saw a drop in numbers, yet managed to maintain the first place spot. The movie is not seeing any massive push to success but it is remaining fairly consistent, and more people are starting to give it positive feedback than it’s opening weeks. Kubo and the Two Strings opened to number 4 while War Dogs hit number 3.

Suicide Squad Number One

Despite mixed (and even negative) reviews, Suicide Squad is still number one. Viewer reactions have been mixed, but most are saying the movie is entertaining. Warner Brothers made no secret of the fact that this movie had to do well, or it would mean bad things for the future of DC movies. While it’s sales aren’t through the roof (in fact it suffered a pretty massive drop), they are there. Sausage Party had a fairly solid opening, and Pete’s Dragon managed to hit 3rd place.
