“Chaos Walking” Running to VOD This Friday After Crashing at Box Office, This Year’s Huge Money Loser


The wait is over.

If you stayed away from “Chaos Walking” because of the pandemic, the good news is it’s coming to video on demand and all streaming services this Friday.

The release is just in the nick of time. “Chaos Walking” cost over $100 million. But it’s made just $11 million in four weeks. It’s the biggest money loser of 2021.

Directed by Doug Liman, “Chaos Walking” stars Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley, two big names of this generation. The co-stars are even more impressive: David Oyelowo, Demian Bechir, Cynthia Erivo, and Mads Mikkelsen. Nick Jonas is even in it.

And yet, the film has a 22 rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics didn’t like it. Neither did bloggers. And on Friday, we’ll all get the chance to see it!
