HELLBOY struggles to $12M domestic opening

Hellboy (Lionsgate)

Director Neil Marhsall’s Hellboy is now in the middle of its worldwide rollout but it seems those negative reviews have impacted on the movies box office potential.

Heading in to the weekend Lionsgate and partners Millennium Media estimates put the movie around $17-20M. Estimations coming out across the weekend put the actual box office figure at $12M.

We know little more about the movies performance although CinemaScore announced that opening weekend audiences gave the movie a disappointing “C” score.

No international figures have been released.

Thanks, as always, to BoxOfficeMojo for the figures.

Hellboy stars David Harbour as Hellboy, Ian McShane as Trevor Bruttenholm, Milla Jovovich as Nimue, Sasha Lane as Alice Monaghan, Penelope Mitchell as Ganeida and Daniel Dae Kim as Ben Daimio. The movie is directed by Neil Marshall and arrives in cinemas April 12, 2019.
