Ford vs Ferrari leaves Charlie's Angels in the dust at the box office
Ford vs. Ferrari left its competition in the rearview mirror, competing until the $ 31 million debut at the Box Office Finals # 1, which reported a big budget for originality.
James Mangold's racing drama kicked in over the weekend with strong reviews and the buzz of Oscars for presenters Christian Bale and Matt Damon. And the audience enthusiastically welcomed it, giving a $ 98 million A + CinemaScore movie. Ford vs. Ferrari dramatizing Ford Motor Co.'s drive to cut off the multi-year power of a Ferrari during the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966 is considered a rare type of high-price rebate, built more on historical, practical effects and stellar power than intellectual property.
Elizabeth Banks Banks' reboot of Charlie's Angels could not continue. The Sony Pictures announcement opened below expectations of $ 8.6 million domestically and $ 1
9.3 million abroad, according to studio estimates on Sunday. Although the movie is relatively modestly budgeted at $ 48 million, it is well short of the $ 40.1 million debut of Charlie's Angels of 2000 with Cameron Diaz, Drew Barimore and Lucy Liu. (The 2003 sequel opened in a similar fashion with $ 37.6 million.)
The 1976-1981 version of the television series gave the material a feminist twist. But Kristen Stewart was the only widely known Angel, with the participation of Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska. And "Charlie's Angels" might not be the best movie about World War II "Midway" in its second week. It was cut right in front of the Angels in second place with $ 8.8 million.

At least recently, Hollywood's efforts to get rid of old intellectual property have been met with shrugs from moviegoers. November has already seen disappointing debuts for the sequel to Paramount Pictures 'Terminator: Dark Fate ($ 56.9 million in three weeks) and Warner Bros.' The Shining riff, Doctor Sleep ($ 25 million in two weeks).
This made Ford Ford Ferrari's initial success even more so. The opening weekend of Walt Disney Co., which included $ 21.4 million internationally, took several tours before it reached profitability. But as an adult-oriented action movie with excellent audience ratings and attention-grabbing, Ford vs. Ferrari is likely to play well in the coming weeks.
"We knew it was a real player. Everywhere we played it, whether it was at festivals or screenings, people came out to react so positively to it. We knew we had a little jewel here, "said Kathleen Tuff, Disney's chief of distribution. "James Mangold and the Fox team, combined with the talent behind him – Matt and Christian – it's just a great, exciting, ambitious movie. This is exactly what you want to see on the big screen. "

The Ford v. Ferrari, made by 20th Century Fox before the acquisition of the Disney Company, is Fox's biggest hit ever. from Disney. Much of Fox's previous production, including "Stuber" and the X-Men movie "Dark Phoenix," fell apart. The Ford v Ferrari version comes between two major Disney initiatives – the recently launched Disney + streaming service and the upcoming Frozen 2 release.
Warner Bros. "The Good Liar," a mystery starring Helen Myron and Ian McKellan, was the other new issue of the weekend. He managed to make a modest $ 5.7 million by adding to a series of underperforming adult targeting messages for the studio, including "Blinded by the Light," "The Golden Fisherman," and "The Kitchen."
However, these disappointments all pale to the success of Warner Joker. On Friday, it made $ 1 billion worldwide.
