‘Monster Hunter’ Tops the Weekend Box Office With Just Over $2 Million

It’s a huge bummer that Paul W.S. Anderson‘s highly entertaining Monster Hunter (read Meagan’s review), a movie very much suited to the big screen, has been released into theaters here in the United States during a pandemic, as it’s not exactly an ideal time to, well, be sitting inside of a movie theater at all right now. And not that many people are, as most of this year’s movies have been struggling at the box office. Monster Hunter is no different, as expected.

Though it topped the domestic box office this past weekend in the #1 slot, the Milla Jovovich-starring action/horror movie only managed to make $2.2 million in 1,736 theaters.

Worldwide, Monster Hunter has to date (according to Wiki) made just $11 million total. The reported production budget for Anderson & Jovovich’s latest spectacle is $60 million.

It makes little sense to even compare Monster Hunter‘s opening weekend to the opening weekends of similar films that were released in non-pandemic times, but we’ll at least note that the previous Anderson/Jovovich adaptation of a Capcom video game franchise, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, had a domestic opening weekend take of $13.9 million in 2016.

Could Monster Hunter have approached that number had it been released under normal conditions? It’s impossible to say, but it was no doubt crippled by its unfortunate timing.

These continue to be trying times for the movie business, and movies like Monster Hunter are suffering as a result. At this time, the film doesn’t yet have a VOD release set in stone.

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
