Barbie is still doing well at the box office; in fact, the picture recently won its fourth weekend in a row and set new records.
Oppenheimer is also doing well at the box office, recently breaking into the Top 10 highest-grossing Rated R films.
However, not every new release is having a terrific summer. This weekend saw the debut of The Last Voyage of the Demeter, a film based on one of the most interesting chapters of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Unfortunately, that does not appear to be enough to entice viewers to see the horror film.
Universal’s Dracula feature is the studio’s second disappointment of the year. Renfield was released in April and only made $26,348,156 globally.
The Last Voyage of the Demeter, on the other hand, opened in fifth place at the box office this weekend, earning only $6.5 million.
According to Variety, the picture cost $45 million to create, which is “a moderate figure for a period spectacle,” but the opening statistics indicate that it will not recoup its costs.
