There have been too positive reviews for Searchlight Pictures’ comedy thriller ‘The Menu’, and as per critical claims, it’s good to watch for foodies and thriller lovers. But the question is on the box office performance that’s not enough for its production as compared to its buzz. Despite, ‘The Menu’ having received positive reviews from critics and audiences, it has underperformed at the box office, which is more important from a production point of view.

As per reports, Searchlight Pictures’ comedy thriller ‘The Menu’ released in the USA on November 18, 2022, in more than 3100 theaters, has collected $3.6 million on its first day (including $1 million from pre-night previews) and $9 million on its opening weekend at the domestic box office[1], while the total gross of the film is at $11.47 million domestically and $6.18 million overseas, for a worldwide total of $19.65 million; looks like a good opening but that’s dull and unimpressive in any way because of its cost.

‘The Menu’ comes with a price tag of just $30 million before P&A, and after marketing, it carries a break-even point of $60 million. $60 million is not a big break-mark, but considering the performance of ‘The Menu’, the mark is becoming bigger, which means ‘The Menu’ is a box office bomb despite receiving good word of mouth. But besides the industry estimates, the critics and production hopes remain high due to good word of mouth, and the coming weeks will be crucial at the box office.
