With the leading roles of Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum, The Lost City is on the way to take the box office throne from The Batman.
Paramount Pictures’ The Lost City is predicted to gross $30 million on its opening weekend, after making $11.5 million on its first day in theaters and earning $2.5 million in the previews on Thursday. Matt Reeves’ The Batman has been stably established at the top of the domestic box office in its first three weeks in theaters and made another $5.5 million on Friday which drew a 49% decrease from the earlier weekend.
Whereas the box office throne of The Batman may be taken by The Lost City, the latest Dark Knight movie has grossed an overall $316 million domestic box office after just passing the $300 million milestones in its third weekend. This turns the Warner Bros. and DC Films product to be the second movie since Spider-Man: No Way Home to reach that target during the COVID-19 pandemics.
The Lost City is directed by Adam and Aaron Nee with the leading role of Bullock as a romance novelist Loretta who is arrested by a vicious billionaire (Daniel Radcliffe) for her understanding of a lost city that arises in her latest book. Tatum describes Alan, the Fabio-Esque model working for the novelist’s book covers, who makes a decision to save Loretta himself. In this action-romance comedy, the two must guide the severe jungle terrain; furthermore, Brad Pitt also has a cameo role in this show. The movie has been warmly accepted, receiving a “B+” rating on CinemaScore and a 76% approval aggregate from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, meaning general support from audiences. The movie carries a big production budget of $68 million; therefore, Paramount will keep the details in secret in the forthcoming weeks.
Audiences can go to the theaters to see both The Batman and The Lost City now.
