Fantastic Beasts 3 dominates the box office but magic is not enough, what could happen?


Published on:

Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets recently hit theaters. The third film of the Harry Potter spin-off was expected by fans of the Wizarding World. While the film had a good opening weekend, it fell short of its predecessors’ record and could spell trouble, too.

Dumbledore’s Secrets (see review) earned $43 million in the US. This is not good because Warner Bros. is attentive to the numbers of the film, depending on how they are, the company will evaluate or not the possibility of a new installment for the saga.

As for previous installments, 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opened with $74 million, while 2018’s Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald took in $62 million. With a start of $43 million, The Secrets of Dumbledore will have to work hard, especially abroad, to be able to get a good mark and leave WB happy to get another sequel.

As for second place at the box office comes Sonic 2. The sequel to the 2020 hit film is off to a great start and this weekend hit $30 million, leaving a cumulative total of $100 million. In third place appear Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, Daniel Radcliffe with The Lost City. The action-romantic comedy took in $6.5 million in its fourth weekend, leaving a cumulative total of $80 million.
