‘Birds of Prey’ Grounded At Box Office

Birds of Prey

Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn failed to gain altitude in its box office debut over the weekend, earning a tepid $33.3 million from 4,236 theaters to mark one of the lowest domestic launches in modern times for a studio superhero pic despite strong reviews.

The female-led film also struggled overseas, where it bowed to $48 million from 78 markets for a global start of $81.3 million. The coronavirus is starting to impact moviegoing in Asian markets outside of China, including South Korea, where Birds of Prey grossed a muted $1.9 million.

The top 12 films of the weekend, as of Sunday, February 9, are as follows:
