‘Furiosa’ flops at box office in opening weekend
Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga has had a poor opening weekend at the cinema despite receiving rave reviews from critics.NME’s five star review of the long-awaited prequel to the Mad Max series described the film as “brilliant and unmissable” and said the film was “another extraordinary blockbuster juggernaut that in some sequences somehow excels even its predecessor, arresting viewers with its booming, utterly immersive world of grease, dust, motorbikes and carnage.”Directed by George Miller, the film stars Anya Taylor-Joy as Furiosa – a younger version of Charlize Theron’s character in Mad Max: Fury Road – and Chris Hemsworth as war lord Dementus.In the prequel, Taylor-Joy’s character is snatched as a child by the sadistic Dementus. Forced to ride through the Wastelands with a great biker horde, Furiosa must fight to find her way home while Dementus and fellow tyrant Immortal Joe battle for dominance in the desert.Despite a budget of $168million (£143million) to make, the film underperformed in its box office debut, only recouping $25.6million ($20million) between Friday and Sunday in the US.For cinemas in the US, it marked their worst Memorial Day performance in 29 years.The film did recoup an additional $33.3million (£26million) from international audiences, with a total of $58million (£45million) worldwide according to Variety.At Cannes, where the film received its premiere, it received a sx-minute standing ovation.Variety reported that Hemsworth grew emotional during the applause, while the actor was also filmed kissing director George Miller on the head.“We worked very hard on this film, and it’ll be very interesting to see what you make of it,” Miller said ahead of the screening.

according to The Numbers.The Post called the movie, which is both a spin-off and prequel to 2015’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” and stars Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth, “a brutal, exhilarating quest for revenge.”Since it is expected to earn between $31 and $33 million over the four-day holiday weekend, it appears that “Furiosa” will take the title of lowest Memorial Day opening in 41 years, according to Deadline.“The Garfield Movie,” which also opened on Friday, landed in second place with $8.4 million in sales.The New York Times called the animated adventure comedy “an inert adaptation that mostly tries to skate by on its namesake.”The character of Garfield is voiced by Chris Pratt, which the New York Times also bashed as “an overly spunky casting choice that was doomed from the start.”The live-action fantasy comedy “If,” which was in first place last Friday, its first day in theaters, took third place, with earnings of $4.3 million.The movie, which centers around a young girl who sees others’ imaginary friends, marks the first time real-life husband and wife Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds starred in the same movie since 2011’s “Green Lantern.”Disney’s “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes,” which was in second place last week, slid down to fourth, with a $3.4 million take.The action comedy “Fall Guy,” which was in fourth place last week, moved down a notch to fifth, taking in $1.6 million.
