The 20th Century Studios’ most recently theatrical released, ‘Barbarian’ has received mostly favorable reviews from the critics and audience, and perhaps, it was the reviews that made 20th Century Studios release the film in theaters instead of streaming it. Releasing in theaters has also been a good decision for the production as this small budget is doing very well at the box office.
Is Barbarian Hit Or Flop?
As per reports, 20th Century Studios’ horror thriller ‘Barbarian’ was released in the USA on 9 September 2022 in over 2300 theaters, collecting $3.90 million on its opening day (including $850k Thursday night previews) and $10.54 million on its opening weekend at the domestic box office, which is an impressive and solid start for a low budget production. While the so far total gross of the film at $35.02 million global, including $33.37 million domestically and $1.64 million overseas.
20th Century Studios’ $4 million budgeted ‘Barbarian’ has performed very well at the box office, and it’s even more spectacular when the production did not pay any attention to the film’s P&A. Even if only a little profit, there is no hesitation in saying that ‘Barbarian’ is a commercial success. Additionally, a few months back, the production was preparing for the streaming of the film, but later, after good word of mouth, the film has been released theatrically, and this one decision has proven very successful.
Talking about the exact critical response, then, ‘Barbarian’ received a 7.6/10* IMDb rating, and on Rotten Tomatoes, it scored 92/100% based on 148 reviews.
