Fantastic Beasts 3 is expected to relinquish the leading position at the box office after one week in theatres to DreamWorks’ latest animated comedy The Bad Guys, which is smashing all projections.
Box Office collections of Fantastic Beasts 3:
The Fantastic Beasts films, which are prequels to Harry Potter were never able to be as successful as the first, original series. The latest installment in this new series, however, debuted $19 million less than the last lowest-grossing movie. The underlying reason for this may be ranging from several factors such as widespread disapproval of the last movie, Crimes of Grindelwald, or the squabbles of the cast and crew behind the camera. Star Ezra Miller’s many arrests in Hawaii, original Grindelwald actor Johnny Depp’s replacement by Mads Mikkelsen, and author J.K. Rowling’s transphobic remarks are among the scandals associated with this movie.
The Bad Guys by DreamWorks:
A loose adaptation of the Aaron Blabey children’s novel series of the same name, The Bad Guys premiered in the United States on April 22, 2022. The movie features a reincarnation of the Big Bad Wolf. This wolf guides a bunch of delinquent animals through their transformation into good men. Sam Rockwell, Marc Maron, Craig Robinson, Awkwafina, Richard Ayoade, Zazie Beetz, Lilly Singh, Alex Borstein, and Anthony Ramos are among the vast voice artists of this movie. According to Variety, the film is expected to collect $25 million in its debut weekend.
Warner Bros. stated in 2014 that the prequel series would be a trilogy. However, Rowling stated in 2016 that the series will be expanded to five films. The fans were undoubtedly ecstatic, but things did not proceed as expected. The first film in the series was the most profitable, grossing over $800 million in total; The Crimes of Grindelwald grossed roughly $650 million. However, the most recent film was the least successful. According to recent sources, the script for the fourth film is yet to be prepared. Many supporters, though, believe Warner Bros. could take a chance and stick to their guns. Fans would like to see more movies that would help them delve into some pre-Harry Potter tales.
