    Maybe $45 million domestic and maybe more or less $120 million worldwide. Dark PhoeniX flopped so hard, that its harder to predict how will this perform, especially being delayed for 2 years and with a buzz lower compare to Dark PhoeniX.

    ‘New Mutants’ Hopes To Overpower Hurricane Laura As It Looks To Reopen Cinemas – Deadline

    Weird how this movie is finally coming out and I won't be able to see it in the big screen as theaters might not be open (from where I live) until neXt year. Its also the first Marvel movie since Punisher War Zone that I won't see in a theater.

    Box Office: ‘New Mutants’ Lands $7 Million Debut
    Here’s what I found most interesting about the article.
    The movie came in a little under projections but at this point I’m sure the expectations with this movie were always low(even before the pandemic). Now NM is going to be viewed as a movie that will test the waters for the box office in the era of the pandemic. I think the movie having a million dollar opening even without the key markets in the country opening like New York and California is a encouraging sign. New Mutants is pretty much a failure no matter which way you look at it, but hey at least it’s the first new movie in several months to do over a million dollars in the States!

    I was eXpecting worse numbers than that given the pandemic. At least it would outgross Punisher War Zone, and hopefully Elektra.

    With an estimated $7 million, Disney’s The New Mutants from 20th Century Studios fell on the lower end of pre-weekend predictions. Critical reception was mixed-to-negative heading into the weekend (35% on Rotten Tomatoes, 45 on Metacritic) as the X-Men universe spin-off found itself unable to build on its Friday performance. Opening in 2,412 theaters, the film took in $3.1 million on Friday and dropped 21% on Saturday ($2.45 million) and 40.8% on Sunday ($1.45 million). It had a $2,902 per-theater average. Still, as theaters across the country continue to re-open, there is a chance that the PG-13 film, which stars Anya Taylor-Joy and Maisie Williams, could attract more ticket buyers. For historical comparison, the last X-Men-related movie, Dark Phoenix, opened to $32.8 million domestically on June 5, 2019.

    Internationally, The New Mutants added an additional $2.9 million, bringing its worldwide opening weekend cumulative to $9.9 million.

    Disney’s ‘The New Mutants’ Delivers $7 Million, Bill & Ted Return with $1 Million, and ‘Tenet’ Soars Overseas - Box Office Mojo

    According to the internet, the production budget was 80 million. It doesn't look like an 80 million film.

    I thought the production budget was closer to 40 Million. Regardless, this wasn't a high production movie. It was, essentially, a free movie to Disney, which is why I never understood why they didn't just release it earlier. It didn't make much, but I don't think they ever expected it to make much. It just seemed like it wasn't worth delaying it with the hopes it could do better.

    That being said, considering there are very few people watching movies right now (I wanted to see this, but it's not worth dying over), maybe now was ideal because it's the perfect throwaway movie.

    LOL. Wow. So many low-barred movies this is being compared to.

    Honestly, this was the most predictable end to both X-Men: Apocalypse and The New Mutants--that I had vocalized.

    Which would have been better to be put on the shelf and picked up at a later time. But I'm sure there were contractual obligations that HAD to be met for Fox, that Disney had to comply.

    My hope is that Marvel is smart enough to stay away from these story-lines for the foreseeable future and build movies up to these big events like in the comics. Because there is SOOOOOOO much context to what made these comics ever so popular.
