Disney Can’t Crack this Nut: $130 Mil “Nutcracker and the Four Realms” Bombs with (Maybe) $20 Mil Weekend


Disney still can’t crack that nut.

“Nutcracker and the Four Realms,” they say, made $20 million over the weekend. It cost $130 million to make.

The $20 mil number is questionable. It means that the movie that made $5.6 million on Friday must have made twice that on Saturday, then levels off again today. Really? Ok.

This was a long predicted disaster, so no surprise. Maybe the fifth Realm will do the trick. The good news is Disney is reporting $38 million from foreign countries where people are easily entertained. Other planets haven’t reported in yet.
