Disney can look forward to a strong start from Free Guy in the cinema. The film clearly exceeded the experts’ expectations over the weekend. Analysts are expecting sales of between 15 and 20 million US dollars, which Free Guy will make in the USA in the first few days. In fact, director Shawn Levy’s film brought in $ 28.4 million. The gross profit is US $ 50.9 million worldwide.
Free Guy is currently running exclusively in theaters – all the more convincing are the sales that the film with Ryan Reynolds in the lead role made during the pandemic. With a budget of 120 million US dollars, Free Guy is also one of the cheaper productions. Disney is already so excited by the numbers that a successor has been commissioned. Free Guy was actually supposed to come to the cinema in the summer of last year – but the start was postponed several times due to the pandemic.
Things are currently less convincing for The Suicide Squad. Already on the second weekend the numbers of the DC film dropped significantly. In the USA, the current work by director James Gunn only made it to number 5 in the ranking – behind Free Guy, Don’t Breathe, Respect and Jungle Cruise. The Suicide Squad grossed a total of 7.7 million US dollars on the US weekend – a drop of 77 percent compared to the previous week. Worldwide the film is now at 118 million US dollars. Experts fear that not even the box office results of the first day of Suicide Squad from 2016 can be achieved. On the so-called Opening Day, the film fetched 133.7 million US dollars.
