UNBELIEVABLE!!! WONDER WOMAN 84 Actually Flopped!!

UNBELIEVABLE!!! WONDER WOMAN 84 Actually Flopped!!

Most unbelievable fail in the history of cbms, we now know that after a highly successful but questionable first film Wonder Woman 84 has done the unthinkable

Negative word of mouth...plus pandemic wiped WW84 off the map.

When you break down the HBO max subscriptions, the release of WW84 didn't really add anything. Since it launched HBO max subscriptions basically doubled every 3 months which is a pattern that saw no change after the release of WW84. So they undercut themselves and lost tons of money on the film and saw little to no gain in subscriptions. And WB hurt their reputation as seen by Nolan's departure.

Disney has no reason now to follow HBO Max after seeing these results. Black Widow is said to not be going to digital release.

As one financier tells The Hollywood Reporter, releasing movies while theaters are closed is "great for headlines, but not for the bottom line." They use the poor performance of Wonder Woman 1984 as an example, noting: "The major studios have realized there is no point in trying to release their product right now."

WB is a shady company you cant trust their "paid articles" like yesterday about WW84 doing great. WB right now is not even reporting box office "actuals" anymore because it can hurt their stocks. That growth is mostly from people who already had HBO and finally updated to HBO MAX for "free" along with "free trial" subscribers. They are apparently counting "users" instead of subscribers as growth too because if you share your account to 4 people that's 4 more users not subscribers.

WW84 is a flop in terms of database growth and cost. Kong vs Godzilla was paid to move up because they needed another big draw before more "paying subscribers" quit. AT&T just sold crunchyroll to Sony so they are probably going to lose a huge library of anime too which has a huge crowd. AT&T probably regrets buying Time Warner for 85 billion right now as the profit/management has been terrible.

Things are not going exactly as planned for Warner, as they saw Wonder Woman 1984 severely underperform in China, according to Variety. Despite its predecessor being a $38m hit in 2017, Wonder Woman 1984 only sold around $18.8m in China this time around, falling short of Chinese blockbuster The Rescue which grabbed $36m from the box office, even with the former taking up most of the IMAX screenings in the country.

Outside of China, things are not looking much better for Wonder Woman 1984, with the film totaling $38.5m from all 32 markets where it opened, a relatively small number far below the $60m dollar expectations Warner had for opening weekend.

WW84 FLOPPED!! Who would have thought we'd be here in 2021 but here we are.

This makes no sense to me. To the best of my knowledge, WW84 made millions of dollars in an environment where movies that gross $1million on a weekend win the box-office. It was never going to make cbm money in a decidedly un-cbm environment. Did the gamble to release on HBO Max work? Not as well as hoped, obviously, but at least it’s some sort of attempt to make the proverbial lemonade out of lemons, and at least access to new content. I guess a more accurate headline like “WB gamble on HBO Max releases not as successful as hoped” isn’t as click-bait as this one.

Pathetic. You can tell this guy is just deliberately trying to bash on Wonder Woman.

@n1ghtw1ng2832 - he has been doing this for a while. Just sucks Kevin Feige off, acting like the only way Captain Marvel could have gotten the reaction it did was DC fanboys (a lot of marvel guys didnt like it either and a lot of marvel guys liked wondwr woman as well) and acting like the infinity saga was perfect. It was mostly good, but they had had at least 1 stinker per phase.

@dracula - Do people actually lack the ability to like both DC AND Marvel? I don't get it. "DC Fanboys", "marvel guys", it's crazy that only nerds try to divide the comic book fanbase, as the actors and movies makers don't care at all.

I don't think it is the films fault. Right now in some countries it is impossible to go to the cinema. I mean in the UK cinemas are closed. No money is being taken, yet WB made the choice to release it in the cinema in the UK anyway. It is currently available on digital services in the UK, but to give you an idea of how expensive it it. I'me an Amazon Prime subscriber and if I want to rent the film I would have to pay an extra £15.99. Not bye it just to rent it. That is more expensive than buying any other film on amazon prime. With rent you have only a certain amount of time to watch it.

@gordonh7 - Agreed.

Renting? OMG, most of their rentals are just a few dollars lower (sometimes 2 or 3 bucks higher) than buying them. So, I just buy and watch them anytime I want without depending upon the internet or cable.

And I almost always buy them from Amazon as a Prime member. By the time most of these are actually released, the price drops down to around $20.00 (or lower) with free shipping.

gordonh7 - 2/1/2021, 6:57 AM
@LSHF - In the UK rentals are usually about £4-£6. £10 to bye. But like I said with Wonder Woman 1984 it is £16 just to rent it.

@gordonh7 - Wow! Sometimes I amaze myself in a scary way.

I speed-read through your original post that I missed the "UK" (assumed it was "US") and "£" (assumed it was "$").

Sorry about that. My bad. Duh!

First of all if the movie was good, I could have seen many people buying a subscription to HBO Max, but because the movie was bad, people decided to spend their money else where.

So I'm honestly not surprised it failed. Had it been good it would have done well and another problem is HBO Max is only in America, so that hurt the movie too.

"Most unbelievable..."? I believe it. It costs too much and was released during the pandemic. Why would anyone have a hard time believing this? Or is it just worded this way as many article headlines exaggerate and/or lie to get views?

Blah, blah, blah. Anyway, per Wikipedia;

"As of January 31, 2021, Wonder Woman 1984 has grossed $39.2 million in the United States and Canada, and $112.8 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $152 million. In January 2021, The Hollywood Reporter wrote that the film would likely lose the studio "north of $100 million."
