Here's How Much Birds Of Prey Is Expected To Make At The Box Office This Weekend
Birds of Prey is projected to open strong.
DC's next big comic book movie, Birds of Prey, comes to theatres this weekend. It's expected to have a huge opening at the box office, where it's projected to pull in between $110 million-$125 million globally for the three-day weekend, according to Deadline. The critical reaction may help, as it's been quite positive--check out our Birds of Prey review and review roundup for more on that front.
The movie was produced on a $97.1 million budget, which drops to $84.5 million after California's tax credits, so Deadline estimates it won't have trouble turning a profit.
Birds of Prey is a spin-off of Suicide Squad, in that Margot Robbie reprises her role as Harley Quinn--although the two movies aren't related in any way. That movie made $133.3 million over its opening weekend back in 2016. One important distinction between the two is that Suicide Squad released during the summer, while Birds of Prey is premiering in February.
Early social media commentary on Birds of Prey has been overwhelmingly positive. Official reviews will start to appear on Wednesday, February 5, so keep checking back for more.
