Yesterday we shared with you some pretty negative reviews for ‘Men in Black: International’.
The spinoff currently sits at a 29% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and most critics say it lacks originality, which shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone.
So how will the negative reviews impact its opening weekend? Well, it’s too early to say if they’ll hurt the movie, but we do know they certainly won’t help.
According to the most recent report, Men in Black: International is expected to bring in around $30 million this weekend, which should be enough to beat the ‘Shaft‘ sequel, which is expected to make around $20 million. By the way, Shaft is also receiving poor reviews from critics.
If Men in Black: International hits the $30 million mark, it’ll still be well below the $54 million opening weekend for MIB 3 and the $52 million opening for Men in Black II.
If you’re wondering, Men in Black: International was made on a $110 million budget, which is noteworthy because MIB 3 had a budget of $210 million. So at least they were smart enough to cut the budget.[mashshare]
