Birds of Prey, with Margot Robie reprising her role as Harley Quinn, had the worst opening weekend from any DC Extended Universe film, earning a disappointing $33 million at the box office, much lower than its expected $50 million debut.
The movie may have had some things against it this weekend like a relatively unknown cast and an R-rating. The Coronavirus could also have hurt its international numbers, keeping movie-goers at home with only a $48 million dollar return.
Despite the low numbers, Birds of Prey‘s getting strong reviews. Do you judge a movie’s quality by its opening weekend earnings? Why do you think Birds of Prey missed its $50 million mark?
