Warner Bros. looking at $150 million loss on King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

16 May 2017 3:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword found itself struggling at the box office this past weekend, grossing just $15.4 million from its domestic opening, and a further $29.1 million from international markets, including $5 million from China.

According to THR, the Guy Ritchie-directed medieval fantasy is expected to gross no more than $145 million globally. Given that Warner spent $175 million making the film, and many millions more on its marketing campaign, it has been reported that Warner will be looking at a loss in the region of $150 million.

Should the studio take that kind of hit, it would surpass the $125 million loss that Paramount suffered on Monster Trucks, making it the biggest box office bomb of the year to date. Fortunately for Warner Bros., the studio has some big hitters on the way this year in the likes of Wonder Woman, Dunkirk and Justice League, which should help to soften the blow.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Crushes King Arthur at Box Office in Weekend #2

14 May 2017 12:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy 2 kicked off the summer movie season in grand fashion last weekend, with an opening weekend of $145 million, far surpassing the $94.3 million take of the original Guardians of the Galaxy movie. This weekend, these intergalactic superheroes took on two new movies in wide release, Warner Bros. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and 20th Century Fox's Snatched, with Lowriders also managing to crack the top 10 in limited release. Still, none of these newcomers could come close to the superhero ensemble Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which had no trouble repeating with $63 million.

Box Office Mojo reports that this superhero sequel dropped 57% this weekend, playing in 4,347 theaters for a respectable $14,494 per-screen average. The $200 million budgeted movie has now taken in $246.1 million domestically and $630.5 million worldwide. After just two weekends, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 already quite close to surpassing both the domestic ($333.1 million) and worldwide take ($773.3 million) of its predecessor. »

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword tanks at the box office with $14.3 million weekend

14 May 2017 2:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well, it looks like any franchise hopes Warner Bros. had for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword are dead in the water, with the Guy Ritchie-directed fantasy adventure suffering a miserable opening weekend in the States with just $14.3 million in box office receipts.

The film, which spent eight years in development, cost the studio a hefty $175 million to produce – including costly reshoots following what Deadline describes as “a train wreck” of an early cut – along with many millions more in marketing.

King Arthur has of course faced some stiff competition, with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 retaining top spot this weekend with an estimated $61.9 million, while the Amy Schumer / Goldie Hawn comedy Snatched also came out on top with $16.5 million.

The movie has also been slammed by critics, with a 27% Rotten Tomatoes score, although it does seem to be going down well with audiences (well, the ones who turned up, »

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is set for an almighty box office flop this weekend

11 May 2017 12:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is looking likely for a weak debut at the box office this weekend when it lands at American theaters.

Guy Ritchie’s reimagining of the classic tale of a mythical English king certainly has a lot of style about, and a top tier cast that includes Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law.

But that doesn’t look like it will be enough for the movie to prove a success financially. King Arthur has a hefty budget of $175 million behind it but if projections hold out, it will only see $25 million returned this weekend.

That’s a weak effort by any metric, and it does seem surprising that in this day and age a film like this would see such tremendous backing. Obviously WB has great faith in the venture (it was originally announced as the first in a potential six-film franchise), and only time will »

Can King Arthur and Amy Schumer Conquer Guardians 2 at the Box Office?

9 May 2017 10:40 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Heading into last weekend, it was virtually guaranteed that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was taking the top spot at the box office, the only real question was how much it would earn. Early box office projections had the superhero sequel taking in as much as $160 million in its opening weekend, a huge jump from the $94.3 million that the original Guardians movie made. But the sequel fell just short of those projections, only taking in $146.5 million, just a bit more than the Sunday estimate of $145 million. This weekend, it will go up against two new releases, Warner Bros.' King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword and 20th Century Fox's Snatched, neither of which are expected to put up much of a fight against this Marvel Phase Three adventure, which should easily repeat with $79.2 million.

Author: David Sztypuljak

A couple of weeks ago we were lucky enough to be invited along to a rather special event as Sky Atlantic gave us the chance to join the Night’s Watch in celebration of Game of Thrones season 7 coming back our screens on Monday July 17th at both 2am (to simulcast with the Us) and 9pm later that evening.

New image from King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Charlie Hunnam discusses the film’s tone

While speaking with EW, Hunnam also discussed the tone of the film: “It was challenging to begin with because there was an uncertainty about the tone… Guy’s [initial] intention was to make something that was outside of his wheelhouse, and make a more classic, straightforward, and somewhat somber film — which is obviously not what we ended up with. Arthur and his pals, the tone of those interactions is very much the way Guy is. We were just doing our best Guy Ritchie impersonations.”

New character posters arrive for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

11 April 2017 3:49 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

As the sun begins to shine outside, many film fans are looking forward to settling down in dark cinemas to enjoy the biggest and loudest films of the summer. In amongst the sequels, comic-books and car chases are a few interesting blockbusters including Guy Ritchie’s latest, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword – and some new character posters have been unveiled in lieu of its release.

Similarly to how the filmmaker re-energised Sherlock Holmes with a kinetic approach with lots of action, the new King Arthur film is Ritchie’s attempt to give new life to the legendary story with magic, mystery, action and huge elephants. Whether it will work in the same way remains to be seen but what’s for certain from the first few trailers is that this is unlike anything else this summer season.

The final trailer for Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur brings magic and enormous elephants

3 April 2017 2:29 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

What you need on a Monday morning is a new trailer for King Arthur. We’re serious. There’s nothing quite like a roaring ascension to pull the sword out of the your stone in the early morning. If Guy Ritchie made alarm clocks instead of films it would involve Jude Law turning up at your house to scream through your letterbox. This morning he’d be screaming the words New Trailaaahhhh.

Which is a roundabout way of saying there’s a new look at the latest big screen version of King Arthur. Ritchie’s take on Sherlock Holmes was a fun redressing of the Victorian detective with a playful use of kinetic camerawork, King Arthur looks no different. Looking closer at this trailer there’s all sorts of magic, mystical elements and massive elephants that seem to comprise every third film released in cinemas at the moment. »
