PAW Patrol: The Mighty Movie has achieved it. The Paramount animated film has prevailed over The Creator and Saw Xraising more than 47 million dollars worldwide, being the preferred option for viewers in a very troubled weekend full of premieres on the billboard. Regarding The Creator, directed by Gareth Edwards and produced by Disney, it seems that the commercial expectations of a science fiction epic that was destined to devastate.
PAW Patrol He has done it again. The animated film has grossed more than 47 million dollars worldwide, which is the animated sequel to the Paramount film and which, according to official data, would have barely cost 30 million dollars to produce. The license for toys, animated series and other merchandising products has earned more than 14 billion dollars since its creation in 2014. For its part, Saw X took second place at the global box office, collecting 29.3 million dollars from the boxes of the different markets and cinemas in which it was released.
It is a great premiere, much better than expected, falling behind the best debut of the saga, corresponding to Saw III, which raised more than 33 million dollars in 2006. But yes, it has improved the poor results of Spiral or Jigsaw, a spinoff that did not have good commercial results. It is believed that, if it continues like this, Saw X be profitable for producers in just a few weeks.
More difficult to be The Creator, the film by Gareth Edwards with John David Washington, which tells us a story about how humans fight against artificial intelligence. The film has come in third place, grossing 14 million dollars in the United States and about 18.3 million in the rest of the world, including very juicy countries such as China, Japan and South Korea. With a total of 32 million dollars, the science fiction film would have cost more than 80 million dollars and should have enjoyed a much stronger premiere and forceful. On the most tragic side we find Dumb Money, which hits the box office with 3.5 million dollars and which tells the story of GameStop’s actions and which has not conquered the public.
