Vin Diesel's comic book film Bloodshot wasn't able to make a splash at the box office this week.
Vin Diesel's new movie "Bloodshot" was a massive box office failure. The film was first estimated to gross a terrible $10 million in its opening weekend but after revisions, it is now estimated to make only $8.4 million.
These numbers are absolutely terrible but there is still hope that the film could make a profit. It costs the studio $45 million to make but it's still got some work to do especially with the Coronavirus pandemic as a factor.
Many are saying that the Coronavirus outbreak was a major factor in the film's poor performance. Yes, Coronavirus was definitely a factor but the estimates were just $10 million at first. If Coronavirus wasn't a factor it might have just scraped over $10 million.
What makes it worst is the poor critics score on Rotten Tomatoes of 32%. But it managed to get a stellar audience score of 79%. So the critics and fans can't agree on if the quality of the movie.
Regardless of what fans think, in the movie industry, it's all about how many tickets you can sell. And Bloodshot hasn't sold a lot of tickets and we may not be seeing a sequel anytime soon.
Bloodshot stars Vin Diesel, Eiza Gonzalez, Sam Heughan, Toby Kebbell
and Guy Pearce. It's about "a soldier recently killed in action and brought back to life as the superhero Bloodshot by the RST corporation. With an army of nanotechnology in his veins, he’s an unstoppable force –stronger than ever and able to heal instantly. But in controlling his body, the company has sway over his mind and memories, too. Now, Ray doesn’t know what’s real and what’s not – but he’s on a mission to find out."
