“The Flash” will start with an exploration: the box office should bombard at the opening

Wow! Who saw this coming?

the flash is estimated to possibly bomb a lot at the box office with a really low opening for a film that cost around $220 million+ to make.

According to the trades, the flash the box office will begin with a crawl somewhere in the $70 million range.

THR reports according to sources with access to box office tracking data “that’s a low number for a film that has been heavily promoted by Warner Brothers Discovery as the best superhero movie of all time.”

David Zaslav and new DCU co-director James Gunn say it’s one of the best superhero movies of all time, but what if no one sees it? This is what happened with Dwayne Johnson black adam with a similar opening ($67 million) and recently with Zachary Levi’s Shazam: Fury of the Gods. Will Fans Come Out For Michael Keaton’s Batman Return In A Movie That’s Been Compared To The Billion Dollars Spider-Man: No Coming Home which features three Spider-Men? We will have to wait and see.

the flash need nice legs

Also, as I pointed out, THR adds that the flash will need big legs to succeed.

by James Gunn guardians of the galaxy 3 also opened relatively soft for a Marvel and Guardians movie, but the box office is doing pretty well because it’s a good movie and much better than Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Thor: Love and Thunder and pretty much everything Marvel has released lately except for Spider Man since the release of Infinity War. So here is, Guardians has legs.

Time to worry?

What is particularly worrying for the flash is Warner Bros. debuted at CinemaCon and held special screenings for fans, however, there doesn’t seem to be much buzz. I actually wonder if there’s any buzz because basically the entire plot of the movie leaked including surprise cameos as the director recently spoiled a huge cameo (which was already spoiled ).

It reminds me of how Dwayne Johnson and his crew spoiled the Henry Cavill Superman cameo in black adam in the hope that it would create buzz and increase ticket sales. Well, that didn’t work.

Warner Bros. also cannot use Ezra Miller to promote the film who is the star of the film. Miller has been in a lot of trouble lately and isn’t connecting with the majority of the public. Maybe they will get it right one day.

WB actually used actors to help promote the film, as various celebrities posted reactions to the film. Yeah, it’s kinda weird, but what are they supposed to do? Do not promote anything?

Blaming Ezra Miller

Whether the flash box office bombs, what about Andy Muschietti who James Gunn has confirmed will be part of the new DCU? Guess they can just blame Ezra Miller, so no worries there.

The movie also has some competition like Transformers: Rise of the Beasts opens a week before, Disney’s Elementary opens the same day (tracking for $40 million), and Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate opens two weeks later.

the flash opens June 16.
