‘The Marvels’ Ends Box Office Run as Lowest-Grossing MCU Movie in History
Written by oasis96.3 on December 4, 2023
(Variety) – There’s nothing heroic about the final box office performance of “The Marvels.” The superhero sequel is officially the lowest-grossing installment in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
After four weeks on the big screen, the comic book tentpole is running out of steam with $80 million in North America and $197 million globally. There would typically be optimism that attendance could rebound over the busy holiday season, but Disney apparently doesn’t expect that to be the case because it won’t be reporting the film’s weekend box office results any longer. The studio wrote on Sunday in a note to press, “With ‘The Marvels’ box office now winding down, we will stop weekend reporting of international/global grosses on this title.”
The film isn’t leaving theaters just yet, and the $220 million-plus budgeted tentpole is expected to play through New Year’s. However, this memo signals that “The Marvels” is not expected to generate notable coinage during the rest of December. Over the weekend, the movie tumbled to 11th place on box office charts with just $2.4 million in its fourth outing.
