Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time” is Underperforming

Turns out that when no one knows what’s going on in your movie, they are a little more apprehensive to go see it.

This seems to be lesson Disney has to learn this as “A Wrinkle in Time” looks to be underperforming at the box office on it’s opening weekend. The total for money made is a weak 39.6 million dollar total from all worldwide markets. Of course, on paper that much money sounds amazing, honestly I wouldn’t call nearly 40 million dollars unwanted or pathetic if someone were to offer it to me, but the movie business is a game with large emphasis on numbers and money. The general rule is that a film needs to make back double its budget in order to be deemed a success, and while the numbers as to what “A Wrinkle in Time’s” budget was, I’m just gonna guess it wasn’t 15 million.

Interestingly enough, the major contributor that stealing audiences away from trying “A Wrinkle in Time” looks to be “Black Panther”, which is also made by Disney, as this weekend it made 41.1 million even though its been out for four weeks. Maybe Disney was uncertain about “A Wrinkle in Time” so they squeezed it next to “Black Panther” so that just in case it did flop, there wouldn’t be a big loss financially, or they might have accidentally suffocated “A Wrinkle in Time” regardless, I doubt we’ll ever know the truth, as at the end of the day, Disney’s two favorite things to do is slowly buy the world, and keeping secrets.

Until Next Time, Alt Rock On!
