“New Transformers” Brings $ 17 Million … The Lowest Income for a “Disney” Film


The new horror movie “New Transformers” topped cinema revenues over the weekend, earning nearly $ 17 million worldwide, with more theaters reopening.
Bloomberg said the work is one of the lowest grossing films ever for a major Disney movie in its premiere. But metrics for success have changed in the era of the pandemic, especially with most theaters in New York and California remaining closed. The movie stars Macy Williams, Anya Taylor, Charlie Heaton and Alice Braga and directed by Josh Bone.
The improvement in movie revenues partly reflects more room for theaters that have reopened. It also shows moviegoers respond to theaters that have frequent disinfection and other procedures. They also had to restrict ticket sales to adhere to social distancing rules, which is slowing any recovery.
“Bloomberg” indicated that only about 50 percent of all theaters in America and Canada were reopened on this weekend “Sunday in these two countries”, compared to a third on vacation last week, noting that films that were shown in international markets recorded Better performance than those shown only in America.
The action and thriller “Psycho” came in second place in its second week of screening, with $ 2.6 million. The film stars Russell Crowe, Karen Pistorius, Gabriel Bateman, Jimmy Simpson and directed by Derek Port.
The new animated movie “SpongeBob. Escape” came in third place, with about $ 600,000.
