It’s not a matter of opinions and what you think.

 

The Coronavirus hysteria is obviously effecting a wide ranging amount of markets, especially in the entertainment and service industries.  And this will only progress as cases grow.  
 

I’m not trying to defend the movie or anything, I don’t care about it.  But the obvious should be re-instated.  Of course the virus is going to effect the amount of people who want to go sit in a congested space for 2 hours (especially among family demos).  Of course if people are worried if they’ll be able to have a job for the next few months they’ll skip on the movies.  Of course if cities and areas are suggesting procedures to minimize large group events and festivals/conferences are being cancelled, people will skip on the movies.

 

These are all emerging factors as well, so expect the effects on the BO and all markets to get worse before they get better.

About Coronavirus and Onward... Onward is also underperforming in South America which is among the regions less affected. The release date is bad but it is opening below Boss Baby in the countries where Boss Baby had a relatively similar date.

it is however as of now, the affect in us is very  small  to be honest (box office), i very much doubt that without the virus, onward would have made 55 mill , from the 40 it will make now ,

Will it even make 40?

 

I mean you can say “I doubt” and whatnot, but service and entertainment industries (even in cities like Dallas where there are no cases yet) are already starting to see dips.

 

It is true that it’ll be pretty hard to quantify magnitude of the effect COVID is having right now, especially since the worried will likely just grow, but that doesn’t mean it’s not present or small

It's a flop. That too a big one. 

 

Next incoming flop is Mulan. 

 

After that Artemis Fowl will flop. 

 

Disney's Trifecta of flops.

3 major flop in single year are lot. 

 

Last year only Dumbo flopped but that also made respectable figures.

So Onward wound up opening on par with tracking. Boring weekend.

Yeah I don’t think the virus really has anything to do with Onward’s performance it just didn’t look that appealing from the trailers especially with the rather unappealing character designs

The whole Coronavirus fear going around has likely kept some away but I don't think the numbers would've substantially improved for Onward under normal conditions. IMO its biggest drawback, as has been mentioned, is that it just didn't look like something from Pixar. It could've easily been mistaken for a DreamWorks or Blue Sky effort from the marketing. They've set the bar so high over the past few decades that their "not special" efforts stick out like sore thumbs. Soul looks much more promising, and the grosses will likely reflect that.

 

That said, why does Tom Holland have such bad luck outside of Spider-Man lol (although Pratt's non-MCU/non-Jurassic luck hasn't been much better, with his duo of 2016 tentpoles barely meeting or coming below their pre-release expectations and Lego Movie 2 fizzling).

Very true! Passengers just eek $100 million and Mag 7 did $93 million. So it’s rough considering that those also had two big names helming each film(Jlaw and Denzel).

Looking at the fairly standard drops for February’s lineup, I’d agree that Coronavirus hasn’t had an impact at the box office yet. Still a ways to go until Mulan arrives...

Lol, what's Deadline smoking? Sonic isn't crossing 8 mil with a 1.78 mil Friday. It's more likely that it doesn't even cross 7 mil with that number.
