The Spin-Off of the ‘Toy Story’ film franchise, Chris Evans’ voice starring Buzz Lightyear character-based film ‘Lightyear’ could do well at the box office, but due to the makers’ own mistakes and controversial content scene, the big production ‘Lightyear’ failed to do well at the box office, and it’s also worse than last two films of ‘Toy Story’ film franchise.
Is Lightyear Hit Or Flop?
According to reports, Pixar’s ‘Lightyear’, released in the USA on 17 June 2022 in 4255 theaters, collected $20.70 million on its opening day and $50.57 million on its opening weekend at the domestic box office. Overall, ‘Lightyear’ has so far collected $97.18 million regionally, $64.08 million international, and has a total grossed $161.26 million global against the production budget of $200 million.
Without a doubt, the opening weekend for ‘Lightyear’ is not well, and it’s also worse compared to the budget and last two films of the ‘Toy Story’ film franchise, 2019’s ‘Toy Story 4’ ($120.90 million) and 2010’s ‘Toy Story 3’ ($110.30 million. The opening weekend of the film may not be good, but how the film performs in the coming times will be very important, but for now, ‘Lightyear’ is a complete box office failure despite receiving positive reviews from critics. In our opinion, if the film was purely a family-friendly film, the box office might have been different.
Talking about critical responses, then ‘Lightyear’ received a 5.3/10* IMDb rating based on 38k votes, and on Rotten Tomatoes, it scored 75/100% based on 284 reviews.
Even though the box office performance of the ‘Lightyear’ is not well, but still Fan will be a Fan. That’s because many people saying that film will be coming on Disney Plus very soon, so the box office doesn’t matter. But let us tell such people that every film of Warner Bro is on HBO Max after 45 days, so do they not care about the box office? Whether it is ‘Secrets of Dumbledore’ and ‘The Batman’.
