We told you it was looking bad for Indy's new feminist romp...
...and boy oh boy were we right.
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny did a belly flop from 10,000 feet this weekend as the Mouse House's LucasFilm killed the last piece of intellectual property that it hadn't yet destroyed.
The movie only made $130 million total on opening weekend (a holiday weekend, no less!). That's $60 million domestically and $70 million internationally against a budget of more than $300 million (not including marketing).
That is less than half of the $272 million that the subpar Kingdom of the Crystal Skull pulled in back in 2008!!
How is it that all of us knew this movie was gonna flame out faster than the human sacrifices in the Temple of Doom but Kathleen Kennedy and the "Force is Female" Disney crew thought it was gonna be a record ending to a beloved franchise? Did they really think that bringing back the woke fembot from Disney's Han Solo movie was going to sell tickets??
And after watching Harrison Ford's Han Solo be turned into a sad failure of a man, did they think we'd run to the theater to watch Ford's Indiana Jones be turned into a sad failure of a man??
I'll leave you with this hilarious analysis of this box-office flop that's 1,000% more entertaining than anything Kathleen Kennedy's train-wreck-of-a-studio could make!
