Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon” dropped by a steep 61% at the box-office in its second weekend of release, reports Deadline.
The movie, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, and Lilly Gladstone came in third place with US$9 million from 3,632 venues. So far, it has generated $40.6 million at the domestic box office and $88 million globally.
From Deadline: “Killers of the Flower Moon” needs to have staying power to justify its massive $200 million price tag. Because of its nontraditional backers (Apple produced the movie and gave it the widest release ever for a film backed by a streaming service), “Flower Moon” doesn’t have as clear a metric of success compared to the average big-budget tentpole. Apple, which hired Paramount Pictures for distribution, places less emphasis on box office and views ticket sales as a way to bolster the film’s profile before it lands on streaming.
