“The Marvels” did not disappoint on its first weekend.
It did, after all. The film’s reviews were continuously negative, and I’m sure Disney and the film’s producers expected it to sell a lot more tickets than it did.
However, estimates for the newest Marvel Cinematic Universe chapter have been slowly declining in recent weeks, and the box office has been dismal thus far. So, from that standpoint, the film has not disappointed; it has fared as poorly as predicted, if not worse.
According to Deadline, in only three weeks, expectations had dropped from $75 to $80 million to $50 to $60 million, depending on whose prognosticator you trusted.
That’s around a 20% decline in the best-case scenario and nearly twice that in the worst-case scenario. In any case, things were not looking good for Disney, which controls the Marvel property.
CNBC was a little more bullish, estimating a $60-$65 million opening weekend as late as Thursday – still not enough to make the box office.
According to an updated Deadline estimate on Saturday morning, the weekend’s haul was in the $47 to $52 million area.
With Friday’s statistics rolling in at a dismal $21.5 million, it appeared to be Marvel’s worst opening weekend ever.
“The only films that have opened lower than $60 million have been 2015′s ‘Ant-Man,’ which debuted with $57 million, and 2008′s ‘Incredible Hulk,’ which opened with $55 million,” CNBC reported.
“Unfortunately, countless spinoffs, sequels and universes in both big screen and small screen iterations, and an at times unclear marketing message have resulted in mixed critical and fan reaction and thus resulted in disappointing box office results for some of Marvel’s recent big screen offerings,” Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore, told CNBC.
Those comments appeared to be similar to what Deadline’s Anthony D’Alessandro had speculated regarding the film’s low performance.
“Marvel Studios, “The Marvels” — with its crossover streaming series blah-blah — looks like it was built to be seen in homes, not to get audiences off the couch,” he wrote.
“Marvel, let’s go back to the Netflix days, when Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Punisher lived in homes and not on the big screen,” he wrote. “It’s clearly better for business.”
However, as CNBC pointed out, certain big-screen offers that aren’t directly related to small-screen programs haven’t fared well.
“While shows like ‘Loki,’ ‘Ms. Marvel’ and ‘Moon Knight’ scored well with critics and general viewers, ‘Secret Invasion’ flopped,” the outlet noted.
“Similarly, on the theatrical side, ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home,’ ‘Guardians 3’ and ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ won over audiences, while ‘Eternals,’ ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ and ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ made them question the direction of the franchise.”
Even with its terrible performance, “The Marvels” remained the top film at the box office this weekend, beating out the horror flick “Five Nights at Freddy’s,” which is expected to gross around $9 million in its third weekend.
Corporate globalist media will not create what people want to watch because it is about control, diversion, and manipulation, not enjoyment.
I am sure you are aware that this is only going to continue getting worse.
The elites want to make us all suffer so that they can push us into the system.
You have heard of Agenda 2030, right?
“You will own nothing, and you will be happy.”
We, as patriotic Americans, have to start making different choices if we want to make a difference today.
Continuing to shop at the same stores and thinking that it will change is not working.
We are funding companies that want to destroy this nation.
Every time we shop at big box stores, we are giving them money to fund our demise, and it is time to step away.
Invest in American-made businesses that care about their customers.
And happy to do business with Conservatives!
We need to create a “parallel economy”.
The companies that we have all shopped with for decades do not like conservative politics. Heck, you have even seen credit card companies, online merchants, physical stores (like Bed & Beyond), and many other places cancel conservative customers.
It’s become evident that we need to develop a parallel economy if we’re going to live.
To my utter astonishment, I discovered a business that was already engaging in this very activity, although I had always assumed I might need to build it all by myself, starting from zero.
And they’ve been at it for more than three decades!
Everything about them, from design to production to storage and delivery, is 100% American.
Their founder was even included in Obama’s “Most Dangerous Conservatives” list.
After learning those specifics, I knew I had arrived at my destination.
Why, then, have you not heard of them?
Simply put, they don’t advertise at all.
They prefer to stay off the radar.
Everything is personal invitations only.
That’s how they keep out the bad actors.
But now that I’m working with them, I can get you in, and we can change the world together!
I can’t promise you you’ll get a call immediately, but I can promise to get you in the queue!
So many people have written in to say they want to help us with this endeavor.
And it’s fantastic!
The only catch is that I only have a small team, and so many people are reaching out for invites that we are completely swamped.
I sort of thought that would happen but wasn’t sure about it.
And it’s freaking cool!
However, this only means that your “white glove” concierge response may take a little longer to arrive.
We are making progress, but there is a significant backlog.
So bear with me if you would.
Companies that actively want our extinction should not receive any of our hard-earned money.
They came right out and said they aimed to cut the global population in half, from 8 billion to 500 million.
They want to get rid of 94% of the world’s population right now.
Still, we keep spending our money on their large box businesses because we have few other options.
But that’ll all change today.
Allow me to introduce you to the solution.
It’s time to make the “Big Box Switch” and change where you send your dollars each month.
All of that is real, and I’m so excited to tell you about it. I hope you’ll join the mission with me.
Here’s a quick summary of this company that I’m so excited to now be partnered with on this mission:
Sound good to anyone else?
I can get you in, but you can’t just go sign up.
They only want people on the same mission to join, and they’re happy to say “no” to the Far-Left Libs!
They’ve been doing it for 37 years, and it’s been working great.
Oh, and did I mention the products are non-toxic and don’t have all the chemicals and crap like Red Dye 40 that all the big corporations put in their products to weaken you?
To wear you down?
To make you—and your family—sick?
Because then, when you get sick, you’ll buy their drugs!
Sorry folks, I don’t play that game, and neither does my family.
We’re talking about the last all-natural, grass-fed, no-hormone, massive Black Angus beef cattle ranch in the United States.
We’re talking fluoride-free toothpaste, chemical-free cleaners, and Deet-free mosquito repellant!
What novel concepts, right?
Stop sending your money to these 11 corporations that do not have your best interests at heart.
It’s an illusion of choice.
There’s only one pro-American, American-made and manufactured, chemical-free, toxin-free, hormone-free, company left, and I’m teaming up with them to FIGHT BACK!
