Indiana Jones 5 grosses $130M at the worldwide box office

Indiana Jones 5 grosses $130M at the worldwide box office 

The film’s budget was $329M. 2. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse– $11.5M/$339.8M

3. Elemental– $11.3M/$88.7M

4. No Hard Feelings– $7.5M/$29.3M

5. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts– $7M/$136.1M

6. Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken (review) – $5.2M

This is very disappointing. Dreamworks Animation’s enjoyable and very inclusive Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken really bombed with just $5.2M. For a major $70M production that is eye-opening. Perhaps animation is just going through a bad phase right now? Certainly, Disney and Pixar are struggling, too. One only needs to look at the middling Elemental numbers for that.

7. The Little Mermaid– $5.1M/$280.9M.

It currently has a 68% critic approval rating (out of 307 reviews), but an 88% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

And with $130M box office gross, it earned $142M less in its opening weekend than Steven Spielberg's 2008 four-quel Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Fans were not thrilled with former Disney Channel star Shia LaBeouf as Marlon Brando-inspired greaser Mutt Williams - Indiana's lovechild with Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen) - who was unceremoniously killed off in the Vietnam War before Dial of Destiny. 

'I wanted to capture that wonderful energy between Indy and an intrepid female character,' Mangold explained to Variety on June 14 of LaBeouf's absence.

'So, that was my first goal, and there's only so many people you can edge into a picture.'

The 37-year-old Daytime Emmy winner has been arrested seven times, and he successfully completed a year-long judicial diversion program on May 2022 stemming from 2020 misdemeanor battery and petty theft charges. As expected, Disney and Lucasfilm’s Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny won the weekend with $60M domestic, and a worldwide total of $130M. Sound kinda low for Harrison Ford’s final go as Indy? Well, it is. These are disastrous numbers, especially with reports of a budget of $295M+, heavy on the plus. So what happened? Well, this is actually continuing a trend of big-budget movies that have flopped, such as The Flash, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, and now this. There’s a lesson to be learned that maybe it’s wise to truly gauge what the audience is clamoring for, not just what the stockholders want.

A shy adolescent learns that she comes from a fabled royal family of legendary sea krakens and that her destiny lies in the depths of the waters, which is bigger than she could have ever imagined.
Sixteen-year-old Ruby Gillman learns that she is in the next legendary line of sea krakens. Despite her lofty destiny, she is desperate to fit in at Oceanside High. Ruby struggles even more to fit in when her mother forbids her from going to the beach. After disobeying her mother's rules, she discovers that she is descended from the warrior Kraken queens and will ascend to the throne as the Warrior Queen of the Seven Seas, her grandmother. The krakens are a race sworn to protect the world oceans from the vain, power-hungry mermaids by battling with eons. Ruby would need to embrace Chelsea, a mermaid-turned-human who enrolls at Oceanside High School.

What went wrong? Well, the Disney brand no longer carries the same appeal it once did following creatively bankrupt films and TV shows in recent years. Reviews for Indiana Jones 5 were lackluster, with just 68% of critics giving the pic a positive score. The marketing failed to generate a proper reason for audiences to shell out their hard-earned money to see Indy’s latest adventure on the big screen. One could also blame Steven Spielberg’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (which grossed $790M worldwide) for tarnishing the franchise brand beyond repair in 2008.
