‘Birds of Prey’ sputters, but tops the box office with $33.25 million debut
Warner Bros. Pictures(NEW YORK) — Birds of Prey delivered an estimated $33.25 million at the box office, enough to knock Bad Boys for Life out of the top spot, but short of the $45 million the film was predicted to capture. It marks the worst opening for any film in the DC Extended Universe.
The R-rated action film, starring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, had earned equally disappointing $48 million worldwide.
Bad Boys for Life dropped to second place in its fourth week of release with an estimated $12 million.
Slipping to third in its fifth week of release was Sam Mendes’ World War I thriller 1917, followed by Doolittle, in fourth place with an estimated $6.66 million.
Rounding out the top five was Jumanji: The Next Level with $5.5 million.
