Over the weekend, “The Bad Guys” has stolen the show with a $25 million surprise opening as “The Northman” alongside “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent” have been met with a muted response from the audience as well as critics.
Universal/DreamWorks Animation “The Bad Guys” has snatched up the leading position in domestic box office, while the movie had racked up $8 million on opening day. Although, weekly turnover of “The Bad Guy” has been nowhere near in contrast to other DreamWorks animations like of “The Boss Baby” and “Trolls” that had shelved a jawdropping $50 million and $46.5 million respectively, “The Bad Guy” would more likely to hand out a handsome profit margin considering its budget.
Storyline of “The Bad Guys” whirled around five notorious animal outlaws such as Mr. Wolf, Mr. Snake, Mr. Piranha, Ms Tarantula and Mr. Shark, while in order to avoid a prison term, the outlaws must bring forth their most notorious con acts ever.
The adventure comedy, which has received an excellent response from the critics, had had a budget of $80 million.
“The Bad Guys” steals No 1 spot in the box office
As a number of families had returned into the theatres this weekend after a series of superhero comic book movies as well as video games adaptations, “The Bad Guys” showed potentials to muscle up further with Rotten Tomatoes audiences rating the movie at 96 per cent, while the movie had received a grade A rating from CinemaScore.
Nonetheless, in comparison to “The Bad Guys,” Focus’ “The Northman” as well as the Lionsgate’s “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent” would likely to face a frustrating journey ahead, as the Northman opened at No 4 with an estimated $12.5 million opening and “Massive Talent” has had a $8 million launch.
