Movie Verdict (Box Office)Disaster

In-Text: ‘The Color Purple’ grossed $60.03 million domestically against a production budget of $90 million. Undoubtedly, the musical period drama has performed up to expectations, making it the biggest opening day for a musical film. However, despite being well-received by the audience, the numbers are not enough to consider it a successful film due to its high production cost. The film performed well, but it still needs at least $200 million for success. Unfortunately, there are no signs that it will recover these numbers, as an unfavorable response is expected from overseas and domestic after Christmas. In short, ‘The Color Purple’ is heading for a box office flop.

  1. I can’t imagine the appeal of a tragic story being made into a musical. Or the need for a fourth iteration of a story = book, movie, play, second movie version. But there’s still the freedom to choose our entertainment.
