Re: X-Men: Dark Phoenix

The film was dead in the water long before that shitty trailer.

Re: X-Men: Dark Phoenix

I knew after watching Apocalypse that the next one Fox did would be DOA. The final nail in the coffin is when Disney purchased Fox. I'm willing to bet the majority just wanted Feige to take over at that point.

Re: X-Men: Dark Phoenix

I don't buy Sophie Turner as Jean Grey (or a leading lady in a movie for that matter). I can't believe Fox botched this story... twice. I

Only one theater which is 16 screens is playing it about 5 or 6 times and couple of them are still playing it maybe once or twice during the day. The rest have removed it. It will be in one of the local theaters that does second run for a few bucks soon enough.

Re: X-Men: Dark Phoenix

yep. film has grossed Worldwide: $232,959,311. So still on track for that 100million loss.


Quote:
After slugging along with disappointing box office numbers for the past three weeks since the film’s release, Twentieth Century Fox has decided to finally pull the plug on its final X-Men film. According to Exhibitor Relations Company, the film will lose 1,667 theaters in just its third week. Last weekend, X-Men: Dark Phoenix only made $3.6 million. The movie’s total box office gross has now totaled to $60.1 million, which is very lackluster for a film with an estimated budget of around $200 million (excluding marketing costs).
For a franchise that’s been so successful, this is definitely not the way Twentieth Century Fox wanted to wrap things up.

Re: X-Men: Dark Phoenix

I think the line that Jlaw delivered in that movie(you know) also didn't help matters. She sounded so totally out of character, almost like she meant it for real. They could have kept that out, as it sounded so out of place for a comic book movie.
