“Dear Evan Hansen,” the big-screen adaptation of favorite Broadway music, premiered in theaters this weekend. Will it be found at the top of the box office charts?
Universal Films, which sees Ben Platt repeat his Tony-winning role, is expected to make its debut from 3,000 movies in North America for about ১০ 10 million. The only new film to open nationwide this weekend. Box office tracking, even in pre-epidemic times, can be unreliable, and musicals have proven mixed track records in theaters, so industry experts have indicated that starting high single numbers would not be unexpected.
An opening weekend below $ 10 million is not ideal for any big studio release. However, “Dear Evan Hansen” carries a 28 million production budget, which means you don’t have to sell a lot of tickets to make a profit. This is good news, as the film has been criticized by critics (it is 43% on rotten tomatoes), many of whom criticized the plot and the decision to throw the 27-year-old Platt as a high school teenager.
Absolutely different from the admirers welcoming the stage version of the reception story in the movie, about an anxious and isolated teenager who has wrapped himself in a lie that has gone out of his control. “Dear Evan Hansen” became a toast when Broadway opened in 2016, winning six of the nine Tony Award nominations it received.
Stephen Chobsky, whose masterpieces “Wonder,” “The Parks of Being Wallflower,” “Beauty and the Beast,” and “Rentals,” made him an expert in film-based and adolescent filmmaking. Despite the polarized response, “Dear Evan Hansen” has A-list descendants, including Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, Caitlin Dever and Amanda Steinberg.
Viewers have a chance to reject “Dear Evan Hansen,” in which case Disney’s superhero adventure “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” will go straight to No. 1 on the domestic box office charts for the fourth straight weekend.
The Marvel comic book adaptation, starring Simu Liu and Aukwafina, has been a reliable draw in recent weeks and has easily ruled out the competition for three consecutive weekends. Should the fall of “Shang-chi” be seen compared to the recent week, it will raise another $ 10 million to $ 12 million between Friday and Sunday.
So far, “Sang-chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” has grossed 8 178 million in North America. After this weekend, it shows “Black Widow” and বছরের 1800 million in domestic ticket sales as the highest-grossing movie of the year.
