I told you yesterday that “Cruella” was in trouble.
Now it’s come true. Thursday previews were just $1.5 million. Disney may be barking up the wrong tree despite a snazzy production and Emma Stone’s bravura performance.
Either the audience isn’t there for theaters, or they’re just going to watch it on Disney Plus. But “Cruella” is heading to a bust in person.
On the other hand, John Krasinski’s “A Quiet Place Part 2” raked in around $5 million last night. Now this is a movie people want to see and in theaters. They must see it in theaters. Look for a big weekend for Paramount, which has needed a hit for a long, long time.
