Sony Pictures’ sci-fi thriller ’65’ was one of the most talked about films, and the makers had high hopes for it. But, upon release, those hopes were dashed. It was not enough to compete with ‘Creed III’ and ‘Scream VI’ at the ticket window, critics also gave the film a red signal— for its low quality of the dinosaurs, Poor CGI, and direction. As a result, the film completely slipped at the ticket window and opened with disappointing numbers for production.

According to reports, Sony Pictures’ sci-fi thriller ’65’, released in over 3300 theatres in the USA on March 10th, 2023, has collected $4.44 million on its opening day ($1.22 million from Thursday night previews) and $12.32 million during its opening weekend at the domestic box office, which is considered disappointing for a medium-budgeted film[1]. The total gross collection of the film stands at $32.06 million in the domestic market and $28.66 million overseas, bringing the worldwide total to $60.73 million.

Louisiana Economic Development reports that the production budget for ’65’ is approximately $90 million before P&A ($60-65 million after tax rebates and salaries). However, in comparison, the ’65’ has undoubtedly flop commercially and critically. But also a loss for Sony Pictures, as the break-even point is still far away. Given the current situation, ’65’ is expected to be removed from theaters this week as several big films, including ‘Creed III’, ‘Scream VI’, ‘Shazam 2’, and ‘John Wick: 4’, are ready to dominate the theaters. Unfortunately, there will be no place left for ’65’.

Although Sony had a good start with ‘Missing’, placing more hope and passion on ’65’ has proven to be costly. The film itself is pretty bad, and it’s not the marketing’s fault that it failed. There are too big films available, why would audiences choose to see ’65’? Overall, it has been a very disappointing experience for the makers.

Regarding critical response, ’65’ has received a 5.4/10 IMDb rating based on 72k+ votes, and on Rotten Tomatoes, it scored 34% based on 124 critic reviews.
