Even though the film fared poorly at the box office, it still made money. It’s not startling since it’s a comic book movie. To not make money, a comic book movie would have to be among the worst ever made. One of the worst-reviewed comic book movies of all time, Dark Phoenix made its money back.
Because of a meme, Sony tried to rerelease Morbius in cinemas. There was a meme that truly made fun of the film. Sadly, they believed that people genuinely wanted to see it. Not only was it a blunder, but the film also debuted to disastrous reviews. According to IGN, it only grossed $289 per theatre out of the 1,037 theatres where it was presented.
For a number of factors, Morbius was ranked first. Curiosity was the first, and maybe the main, factor in the high streaming statistics. Some folks skipped the cinemas to avoid it. It’s possible that the trailers weren’t compelling enough to draw individuals from their homes. Curiosity can be satisfied now that Netflix offers it for free.
The second aspect was that it made its debut in the midst of a pandemic. There were no additional anticipated films that moviegoers went to watch. It’s possible that they did not want to take any needless chances to see a movie that was not receiving favourable reviews. Why not try it now that you can view it in a secure environment? especially if you were looking forward to seeing it.
The true cause is probably the last one. People clicked on it to find out whether the reviews were accurate or whether it was “so awful it’s excellent.” The Sharknado series made it trendy to watch lousy movies. The Sharknado filmmaking team understood why audiences enjoyed the films because they were terrible. They were so beautifully terrible. It explains why the series kept becoming more fantastical as it continued. The Fast and the Furious movies fall under the same category. Morbius wasn’t meant to be a horrible movie, which is unfortunate. Just so happened to be terrible.
After the premiere of the End of the Road Netflix original film, Morbius fell from No. 1 to No. 2. Not at all much of a decline. In fact, it won’t come as a surprise if it reclaims first place. It could have been more enjoyable the second time around for viewers who saw it the first time. That will encourage individuals to suggest it to others who are debating it. Then there are some who will insist that you see how serious the situation is. That will result in more views as well. In either case, Morbin’s Time has found a following on Netflix.
