Wish Worldwide Box Office Projection (Image credit: IMDb)
Before Thanksgiving, the box office will see the arrival of two big releases, and we expect big numbers to flow in the international box office. Even if the fake numbers aren’t forthcoming, a good deal is on the cards, with Disney’s Wish and the Joaquin Phoenix-led Napoleon set to be released in theaters. Keep reading to find out more!
Wanting to argue with Napoleon
Directed by Chris Buck and Fawn Veerasunthorn, the musical fantasy film features the voices of Ariana DeBose, Chris Pine, Alan Tudyk, and more. Expected to be released on November 22, it stars Joaquin Phoenix and Vanessa Kirby’s Napoleon. However, all these films cannot be compatible because the target audience is different.
Go well in the trade before it starts
Wish is expected to hit 3,700 screens at the North American box office, with screenings starting today at 3 p.m. In terms of advance bookings, it is said to be 60% ahead of Disney’s Elemental, which was released this year and was a commercial success. As we can see, the initial trends are in favor of this film.
You want to get off to a good start at the home box office
According to a report by Deadline, Wish is expected to do well $45-50 million at the North American box office over a 5-day weekend, from Wednesday to Sunday (including screenings). It’s a good number, and the film is enjoying the boost of Thanksgiving (Thursday) and Black Friday. So, there is a chance that it will do better than expected.
Overseas offers enough money for the weekend
I hope you don’t see the full release this Wednesday because only 43% of the world will see the movie when it comes out. The UK, Spain, China, France, and other countries will join the party this weekend instead of Wednesday. The fantasy music video will open in Japan, Italy, and Australia next month, while Korea and Brazil will see a January release.
In the foreign market, Wish is expected to rise $25 millionthereby pushing the global box project to $75 million between Wednesday and Sunday.
Budget is Wish’s biggest challenge!
While the show looks good, the budget is the biggest concern for the makers. He says, Wish is rising at a production cost of $200 millionincluding marketing and other expenses, break even $400 million. Therefore, the film should show the legs during the time when they are running around the world in order to be seen as successful.
