Dark Phoenix Suffers Huge 2nd Weekend Drop, May Bomb Harder Than Fantastic Four

Things went from bad to worse for Dark Phoenix over the weekend. Much, much worse. The latest X-Men movie, which is set to be the final one in this particular version of the franchise, entered its second weekend of release with a pack of newcomers such as Men In Black: International and Shaft. That, coupled with bad buzz has led to a disastrous second weekend take at the box office, marking one of the biggest drop-offs in superhero movie history, and certainly the biggest ever in the modern era. The movie could fare even worse than Fox's maligned Fantastic Four reboot. As such, Dark Phoenix is going to lose a whole bunch of money, likely more than $100 million, for the studio.

Per weekend box office estimates, Dark Phoenix dropped a staggering 72.6 percent week-to-week, bringing in just $9 million. On its opening weekend, it made an unimpressive $33 million. Things have gone from bad to cataclysmic.
