According to recent information, Birds of Prey (buy now) grossing just over $ 33 million on the first weekend in the U.S. In itself, this is not particularly intoxicating and is also below the expectations of both analysts and the producing film studio. The latter assumed 45 million as a starting result. At the same time, it is the DC film with the lowest earnings so far on the first weekend. Previously, the superhero film Shazam was last in this category with approximately $ 53 million. Even across brands, it's a very weak movie release: only the Marvel film X-Men: Dark Phoenix was even under $ 32.8 million as a superhero adventure.
Worldwide, Birds of Prey’s earnings to date are just over $ 81 million. Accordingly, the film is likely to recoup its production costs of $ 84.5 million in the next few weeks. However, there can definitely be no question of success. It is therefore questionable whether there will be further screen adventures with Harley Quinn.
