Vin Diesel’s ‘Bloodshot’ Earns $1.2 Million on Thursday Night
Vin Diesel’s superhero film “Bloodshot” released respectably for Sony Pictures. It managed to get $1.2 million. This amount was pulled in at Thursday night’s previews. These previews were set at 2,631 different North American locations.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the latest entries arrive amid significant confusion surrounding everyday activities. Both “Bloodshot” and “I Still Believe” predictions have come in around $10 million, while “The Chase” is predicted to launch in the single digit. Disney-Pixar’s “Onward”‘s second weekend is expected to repeat as the box office leader, racking up $15 million to $17 million. “Bloodshot” — an adaptation of the character of Valiant Comics — is written by David S. F. Wilson, focusing on a Marine who was killed in battle and brought back to life with supernatural powers. The cast has some famous names which include Toby Kebbell, Eiza González, Sam Heughan and Guy Pearce. During the first six days, the family-friendly “Onward” brought during $48 million in North America. This weekend’s third weekend of Universal’s “The Invisible Man” is likely to fight the newcomers for second place.
According to Comscore, the overall domestic box office reached $1.75 billion on March 11, down 5.6 percent from 2019. The performance at the Box office is not that impressive. One reason could be the coronavirus. There is no surprise, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to intensify and people opt to isolate themselves rather than visit public spaces such as movie theatres. The recent “social distancing” strategy from AMC and Regal did not do anything to alleviate the situation.
