That’s not a number to be sniffed at and means that the movie is performing rather well for Sony.
According to Box Office Mojo, Morbius has managed to make $83,905,895 at the box office worldwide.
To break this number down, it ended up making $39,005,895 in the United States and $44,900,000 internationally.
It’s been reported that Morbius was made on a budget of $75 million.
With this number in mind, in order for the movie to basically break even, it needs to make at least twice its budget back.
The reason being is because the studio tends to spend about the same amount of money on other things such as distribution and promotion.
This means that if the film is to make any money for Sony Pictures, it needs to bring in at least $150 million at the worldwide box office.
I’m pretty certain that the movie is going to end making at least $150 million.
Morbius has a solid opening at the worldwide box office
It’s had a solid opening weekend at the box office, despite its poor reviews from critics.
However, even though the critics haven’t taken too kindly to the Jared Leto-lead movie, it seems as though audiences have been enjoying it.
The movie’s currently sitting with a 16% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes.
However, it has a much more respectable audience score of 70% on Rotten Tomatoes.
It’s going to be interesting to see how much money the movie ends up making for Sony Pictures.
I would also be interested to see whether Sony greenlights a sequel or maybe a Sinister Six movie, which is what they were seemingly trying to tee up in those awful post-credits scenes.
