WEST SIDE STORY Disappoints | BOX OFFICE REPORT (13/12/2021)


In a calm before the Spiderman hurricane next week, Disney and twentieth Century’s West Side Story appeared in the lead position with an expected $10.5 million. The expensive Steven Spielberg coordinated melodic featuring Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler appeared on the low finish of assumptions, which had would in general go from $10-$15 millions heading into the weekend. In spite of exceptionally solid critic audits, awards buzz, and the implicit fanbases of both the melodic and Spielberg, crowds simply weren’t too inspired by West Side Story. West Side Story opening just beneath the $11.5 million beginning of In the Heights back in June feels particularly dreary given that West Side Story opened only in cinemas, while In the Heights opened simultaneously on HBO Max. 

It fared surprisingly more terrible abroad, where it scraped up $4.4 million out of 37 international sectors, carrying its first-week worldwide absolute to $14.9 million.
