Morbius finally finds some success…on Vudu



If at first you don’t succeed you may attempt once more, and once more, and once more, and ultimately you would possibly discover an viewers. At the least that’s what seems to have occurred for Morbius. The abysmal vampire superhero film starring Jared Leto is lastly primary someplace.

In a press launch issued by Fandango, which acquired Vudu in 2020, the corporate says that Morbius was the primary title by way of income on Vudu for the week of June thirteenth, 2022. Notably, that’s income, not precise streams. Vudu prices for leases and purchases and Morbius is at the moment obtainable to lease for $5.99 or buy for $19.99.

Whereas Morbius was primary on the field workplace its first weekend, its second week noticed a drop off of 74-percent. That’s the worst second week for any big budget superhero film. It continued to slip down field workplace rankings whereas getting endlessly ridiculed and memed on-line. That led to a return to theaters as a result of Sony apparently thought memes equal ticket gross sales, only to bomb a second time.

Perhaps someday Hollywood will study the teachings taught by Snakes on a Aircraft, which could have been the primary movie to attempt to flip its meme standing into revenue and fail miserably within the course of. Simply because the web loves to speak a few film, doesn’t imply they at all times need to see it—epsecially in theaters.
