Bob Marley: One Love Surprises At The Weekend Box Office, While Madame Web Fails To Put Up Morbius Numbers


When Daniel Espinosa’s Morbius was released two years ago, the film was bashed without mercy by critics (I personally slapped it with one star in my CinemaBlend review), but during the movie’s opening weekend, audience curiosity ultimately overwhelmed the negative buzz, and it still managed to top the box office in its debut. The movie bombed in the aftermath of that first Friday-to-Sunday (plummeting 74 percent weekend to weekend), but the silver lining for the studio was that the project at least got off to a quick start.

Despite the hopes of the folks over at Sony, this pattern did not repeat itself for the release of S.J. Clarkson’s Madame Web. Like Morbius, the film got a critical drubbing last week, but it is also quickly looking like a major bomb that won’t be winning a box office crown any time soon. Instead of the new superhero movie, Reinaldo Marcus Green’s Bob Marley: One Love is now standing tall in the number one position on the domestic charts. Check out the full Top 10 below and then join me after for analysis.
