After the success of Barbarian, Disney’s 20th Century Studios gears up to release one of the most special films of the year, which will be available in theaters this 7th October, and it’s ‘Amsterdam’. Although ‘Amsterdam’ comes with a big production and talented star cast, you may not have any discussion about this film, and inevitably, that the production could not give hype to the film. It wasn’t all that the film got a red signal from critics as well, which is even more disappointing and is bound to have an impact at the box office.
Amsterdam Movie Box Office Prediction
After considering the buzz and pre-reviews, there are nothing special expectations from the mystery comedy thriller at the box office, and in ways of number, experts and production aiming for a minimum of $14-16 million opening from ‘Amsterdam’ over 3000+ theaters, which is a poor start for a film that has a price tag of more than $80 million. But there has been some jump in projections in the last few weeks, and if the film can make a little buzz by the time it is released, then it can give an average weekend of $18-20 million, which may not be so bad.
Even though it comes with a talented and well-known star cast like Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Zoe Saldaña, and many more, the pre-release critical response is not in favor, and now all eyes are on audience reviews. But due to poor reviews, the lifetime expectations are also not according to the production values, and experts expect $50-60 million domestically and $80-90 million globally at the overall box office, and all these numbers are not enough to meet the production budget, while the break-even mark of P&A and distribution together is much more than this.
If not mistaken, it is properly said that ‘Amsterdam’ is ready to be a disaster, and now it’s only a miracle that can make this film a commercial success. In our opinion, the biggest reason for the film’s poor box office projections is the production house because despite being a big film, the makers took a long time to build buzz. It would have been better to start promoting the film sooner.
