‘The Fall Guy' Fizzles With $28 Million in Ticket Sales

·1 min

‘The Fall Guy’ disappointed at the box office during its opening weekend, marking the worst start to the summer season since 1995. Despite a star-studded cast, death-defying stunts, positive reviews, and an extensive marketing campaign, the film only managed to earn $28.5 million in North America. The action comedy, which cost around $200 million to make and promote, collected an additional $37 million overseas. The lackluster performance highlights the challenges studios face when taking risks on new stories, as audiences often express a desire for original films but fail to support them at the box office.
