UK Box Office Thread: FB2 £22m, The Grinch £14.1m, Bohemian Rhapsody £39m

I think the issue goes well beyond any question of WOM. Animated movies of established, well-known superheroes (such as Batman, Spider-Man, etc.) have limited appeal OS and are not really regarded as must-see cinematic events by the OS masses.

 

The LEGO Batman Movie did anemic numbers overseas, and it seems like ITSV will have a similar performance. And yet, by all accounts, both are well-made movies about massively popular characters. So, it cannot be the movies themselves being awful but the format of the movie (animated) not seen as appealing enough for a cinema trip with these characters.

Maybe when you have a live action alternative, it's difficult to bring people in cinemas. Any counter example.

It was a mistake on Sony’s part to release it so close to Aquaman.

True,  I wonder they didn’t go with staggered a release?

I mean if people really want to watch it they would watch it i dont think it being near Aquaman really hurt it that much.

Well you’re missing out then, it’s probably the best Spider-Man film they’ve done, whether it’s animated or not (and that shouldn’t be a negative against it because it looks absolutely gorgeous, with a third act battle that absolutely couldn’t be done in live action). If you love the character, you’d love this film.

It's kind of shocking really considering how well Venom and Homecoming did. Just shows why you need to space out your superhero films.
