Box Office: Disney's 'Strange World' Grosses Disappointing $800,000 in Previews

Disney released Strange World 11 days after Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. How can they release a second four quadrant movie with a $180M budget that close to another movie and only 25 days before Avatar 2? It makes absolutely no sense. This when there were three months without any big budget releases.

Also the marketing seems to be very light. They have sent this movie out to die.

The soft initial numbers are bad news for “Strange World,” which carries a steep $180 million price tag.

Apparently boy likes boy in movie. Movie was considered dead in water by studio (not sure why) but anti lgbt will blame failure on "wokeness"
