One of the most anticipated films of the year, Sony Pictures ’65’ is all set to hit the ticket window on March 10, 2023, in the USA, but unfortunately, the release date has become disappointing for the makers due the dominance of ‘Creed III’ and ‘Scream VI’ at the box office. Despite initial expectations of the film earning a significant profit for Sony Pictures, experts are now predicting a less-than-stellar opening due to the waning buzz and lowered expectations surrounding the film— the makers spent a decent on the film.
65 Box Office Prediction
Unfortunately, the buzz surrounding ’65’ is largely opposite from the side, which doesn’t bode well for its opening. And experts are now predicting that ’65’ will only bring in a meager $10-12 million across its 3200 theaters in the USA, which is disappointing for a medium-budgeted film and maybe a clear sign of failure. If PG-13 rated had a different release date and not the dominant of ‘Creed III’ and ‘Scream VI’, ’65’ could have opened more than $20 million, whereas now the film must have exceptional buzz and reviews to achieve such an opening.
According to reports, the production budget for ’65’ is approx $90 million before P&A (prints and advertising). Unfortunately, the current situation doesn’t bode well for the film’s chances of recouping its production budget, break-even is far away. Talking about ’65’s Lifetime box office expectations, it currently stands at $40-50 million domestically and $100 million globally— indicating that ’65’ is headed towards failure at the box office or even results in a loss for Sony Pictures.
Although the projections for ’65’ are disappointing, there is still hope that the film will receive positive reviews and maintain a strong hold on the box office that at least the makers should not suffer any loss from it, same as the Vikings saga ‘The Northman’. However, the chances of this happening are too less and, to say the least, concerning.
