Why the Charlie’s Angels reboot might bomb on its debut

It won’t be long after fans will finally get to see another Charlie’s Angels reboot on the silver screen. It will have been 15 years since the last one was released back in 2003.

While the film has recently been getting all the publicity, it looks like it’s something the remake will actually need. This generation’s spy trio might not live up to its hype. At least according to the upcoming film’s box office tracking for its mid-November release.

According to Cinemablend, the estimated opening weekend numbers of 2019’s Charlie’s Angels is at a sharp decline. Last month, it was estimated that the Elizabeth Banks-helmed film will be reaching USD29 million but November’s reporting saw it decline to a meager USD16 million.

The action comedy flick starring actors Kristen Stewart, Ella Balinska and Naomi Scott is expected to fall far behind its opening weekend competitor Ford v. Ferrari. Headlined by Matt Damon and Christian Bale, the car racing film is projected to top the box office with a $23 to $30 million range as reported by Deadline. On the other hand, Charlie’s Angels is might only be opening under the -$20 million range.

But the good news is, Charlie’s Angels might be able to pull off a surprising turn ad box office tracking isn’t always accurate as per Cinemablend. The downside is that these estimated numbers doesn’t look too promising for the anticipated remake. Especially since producers reportedly cashed out USD48 million for its production budget. If box office tracking predictions are correct, a USD16 million opening for the film would signal a very slow start.
