Sep 20, 2022 (PressReach.com via COMTEX) -- Sony stock plummets in the market due to the low performance of Woman King at the box office.
Sony Group Corp /zigman2/quotes/208567357/composite SONY +0.84% declined as Woman King was victorious at the box office over the weekend with a total that was higher than predicted, paving the way for a successful run against limited competition and assisting the film industry in avoiding the low point of the year.
The historical epic made $19 million at the box office and received positive reviews from critics and audiences alike, which bodes well for the film’s ability to repay its relatively high production cost. As a result, Sony Stock declined in the market.
The picture significantly eclipsed the $6.5 million earned by the second weekend of Airbnb-focused horror entry Barbarian /zigman2/quotes/203410047/composite DIS -0.01% and fresh horror from A24 in the form of X prequel Pearl ($3.1 million), and it was primarily predicted to lead contenders.
See How They Run /zigman2/quotes/203410047/composite DIS -0.01% , a murder mystery set in the 1950s, brought in $3 million, which was enough to put it in fourth place but ahead of almost all of the films released previously.
Even though Tom Cruise and Top Gun: Maverick (PARA) (PARAA) finally finished outside of the top five again, 2022’s most successful film still pulled in $2.24 million in more than 2,600 theaters, bringing its domestic total to $709.1 million and its international total to $754.2 million (for a total worldwide of $1.46 billion).
Amid a slow release schedule that is expected to continue for several more weeks, ticket sales at the fall box office are approximately 55% lower compared to the pace established by 2019 so far resulting in the Sony Stock decline.
