Fantastic Beasts 3 Projected To Lose The #1 Place In The Box Office From Bad Guys

DreamWorks animated film The Bad Guys performed better and is now projected to drop Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore from slot #1.

DreamWorks animated films Bad People projected to collapse Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secret from perched at #1 at the domestic box office this weekend. Bad People, which opened in the US on April 22, 2022, is loosely adapted from Aaron Blabey’s children’s book series of the same name. The film follows a version of the Big Bad Wolf who leads a group of criminal animals as they try to be good people. The big voice cast includes Sam Rockwell, Marc Maron, Craig Robinson, Awkwafina, Richard Ayoade, Zazie Beetz, Lilly Singh, Alex Borstein, and Anthony Ramos, who recently joined the cast of the Disney+ MCU series. iron heart.


Meanwhile, Fantastic Beasts 3, which opens on Easter weekend, is struggling to achieve the success of its Wizarding World ancestors. although Fantastic Beasts movie, that is Harry Potter The prequel follows magizoologist Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), never achieving the success of the original franchise, the new entry opening $19 million less than the previous lowest-performing film. This is likely due to various factors including a general dislike of the previous films Grindelwald’s Crimes and behind-the-scenes controversies with cast and crew, including star Ezra Miller who was arrested multiple times in Hawaii, former Grindelwald actor Johnny Depp being replaced by Mads Mikkelsen after being accused of domestic violence by Amber Heard, and writer JK Rowling’s transphobic tweets.

Per Variation, Bad People is currently projected to receive an opening weekend gross of $25 million. Another new release this weekend, the Viking story of Robert Eggers Northerners and Nic Cage as comedy Nic Cage The Unbearable Burden of Great Talent opened at #4 and #5 respectively. This leaves it for Fantastic Beasts 3 and Sonic the Hedgehog 2who entered the third weekend, to fight for the second and third positions.

This doesn’t mean that Bad People was a success, however. This expensive animated film reportedly had a budget of $70 million, probably due to its all-star voice cast. The film must have a strong hold if it is to hope to regain its budget domestically. Luckily for DreamWorks, this family-friendly film has exceeded expectations and will have a bit of competition in the coming weeks when the summer blockbuster season officially kicks off.

Bad People actually perform better than projection, but this slot may belong Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secret if it had a box office leg. That doesn’t seem to be the case, especially since the odds seem that way sonic 2 will drop to third place even though it has been in theaters longer. In this situation, Dumbledore may slip from the Top 10 relatively soon, though next weekend’s lack of any major new broad releases will most likely allow it to last at least another week.
