Lionsgate and Millenium’s Consumables 4 opened in theaters on Friday with a $3.2 million box office take as the film heads toward a low-franchise opening. Friday’s tally includes $750,000 for Thursday night previews.
The film had a budget of $100 million and was financed by Millenium. It was slated to open at $15 million in theaters, with some high-end estimates putting it closer to $17 million. But the first feedback now shows that it is around 8 million US dollars. The Nun II might even beat it.
Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham return to the Blow-Em-Up franchise alongside former Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture. The film’s official synopsis reads: “The Expendables are the world’s last line of defense and the team called when all other options are off the table. But new team members with new styles and tactics will give ‘new blood’ a whole new meaning.” Megan Fox, 50 Cent, Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Jacob Scipio and Levy Tran are among the series’ newcomers, alongside Andy Gracia.
It’s been almost a decade since the last one Consumables Film is coming to cinemas. The first three Consumables The films, released in 2010, 2012 and 2014, grossed an impressive $800 million at the global box office. The 2014 film, which was most recently released in theaters, grossed $15.8 million in its opening weekend and has grossed a total of $214 million at the global box office. The 2010 original grossed $34.8 million, while the 2012 sequel grossed $28.5 million.
The film’s critical reception was less than stellar THR The film’s review states: “This edition – essentially a subpar vehicle from Jason Statham (after and Meg 2: The Trench, some quality control might be in order for the actor) with a brief appearance from Stallone and several new cast members who don’t make much of an impression – suggests it’s time for a spin-off of the series; it is finished.”
Hopefully Sony will give out awards elsewhere Stupid money in limited edition. Me, Tonya Filmmaker Craig Gillespie made the film about the GameStop stock market story that took the news cycle by storm during the COVID-19 pandemic (and inspired several Hollywood projects in the process). Paul Dano, Seth Rogen, Shailene Woodley and Pete Davidson are among the stars of the ensemble cast.
Box office holdovers include New Line/Warner’s The Nun II, which enters its third weekend with grosses of over $160 million, as well as Disney and Kenneth Branagh A haunting in Venicethe third installment of his Agatha Christie-inspired film series, enters its second weekend.
