Twelve days seems like an eternity at the box office when you have a turkey. And it’s gobbling at Lions Gate, where “Divergent: Allegiant” has simply collapsed since its release almost 2 weeks ago. The numbers speak for themselves:
“Divergent” after 12 days $97,984,257
“Insurgent” after 12 days $89,693,985
“Allegiant” after 12 days $48,915,840
So now what? Plans for part 4, “Ascendant,” seem folly unless the filmmakers can come up with something– like a cross over from “The Hunger Games” and “Twilight.” Otherwise, why bother when the take on a new film would be another 50% down from this one. Will “Ascendant” even be made? Will fans be left hanging? Will anyone care? Oy vey.
