Nutcracker and the Four Realms, The: Disney’s Misfire

November 4, 2018–Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms launched at No. 2 (after Bohemian Rhapsody), and on the lower end of expectations.

Earning a disappointing $20 million from 3,766 venues, it’s a rare miss for Disney, given the movie’s $125 million price tag.

The disastrous opening is the lowest in over a year for the studio. Disney has struggled recently with movies that don’t feature a superhero, such as the disappointing “Solo: A Star Wars Story” this summer.

The family-friendly “Nutcracker” amassed only $38.5 internationally, bringing its worldwide total to $58 million.

Keira Knightley, Misty Copeland, and Mackenzie Foy star in the film, which was panned by most critics, who gave it a 34% on Rotten Tomatoes.
