What happens when you try to turn King Arthur into a metrosexual, and spend 170 million doing so? Let’s consult the opening box office stats for the new movie, where Guy Ritchie and Co. did just that!
The film scored just over $5 million on opening day and is headed towards a disastrous opening weekend in the range of about $18 million.
In fact, it’s performing three times worse than the Amy Schumer-led ‘comedy‘ Snatched….
Would it be possible to blame the whole thing on David Beckham? I think that it could be reasonable. Also, reviews for the movie are in the toilet, and swirling fast. At the time of looking, it’s at 27% (4.6/10) on Rotten Tomatoes and a 41/100 on Metacritic. And that ain’t going to get any better.
And to think, there were talks about getting six movies out of this franchise!
