The Worst «Harry Potter» Theatrical Release? The forecasts for «Fantastic Beasts 3» are so weak — cinema news

Warner Bros.

The «Harry Potter» franchise has so far reliably made a lot of money in the US box office — since » Fantastic Beasts 2 » there has been a downward trend, which part 3 could now continue. The prognosis for the launch of » Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore’s Secrets » is poor. One might think that the many fans of the wizarding universe would be greedy for supplies after the long wait for the latest film — but the experts of our US sister site Boxoffice Pro dampen expectations.

In Germany, «Fantastic Beasts 3: Dumbledore’s Secrets» will start on April 7, 2022. The US will be there a week later, when the film will be in cinemas on April 15 — and Boxoffice Pro is forecasting earnings between 40 and 55 for the first three days million dollars. That would be the weakest US start of a film in the «Harry Potter» franchise ever and would be even below that of «Fantastic Beasts 2», which at 62 million is considered the worst to date.

Poor start, poor overall result

But not only the first weekend should be weak, the overall forecast is not exactly rosy either. Here, revenues of between 100 and 140 million dollars are predicted for the USA. The direct predecessor had brought it to 159 million in the USA, then 654 million worldwide — both the weakest values ​​of the franchise so far.

Even though many «Harry Potter» fans are likely to be looking forward to a return to the wizarding world and, above all, are curious about the recasting of Gellert Grindelwald, who is now played by Mads Mikkelsen instead of Johnny Depp , there are doubts that too large an audience will flock to the film.

This could also have something to do with the corona pandemic, which is still preventing people from going to the cinema. But even the weak numbers of «Fantastic Beasts 2» had shown that interest in the spin-off series is simply not that great, weak reviews and mixed fan reactions did the rest to dampen anticipation for the next sequel . And then many «Harry Potter» fans are likely to have withdrawn from the franchise after the recent backlashes against author JK Rowling and her transphobic comments.

Lots of competition in the cinema

In addition, «Fantastic Beasts: Secrets of Dumbledore» has to compete for box office audiences with two other strong family films that open in the US in April: » Sonic The Hedgehog 2 » and » The Gangster Gang «. Boxoffice Pro also points out that with » Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness » a long-awaited blockbuster is lurking in early May, which could make «Beasts» directly contest the event character.

With those box office numbers, «Fantastic Beasts 3» would be a disappointment for Warner Bros. It remains to be seen whether the series will continue after that — after all, five films by director David Yates were originally planned.

Will part 3 conclude the series?

But that’s exactly what makes it particularly exciting to see how far the story is advanced in «Fantastic Beasts 3: Dumbledore’s Secrets» and whether the series could already find a satisfactory conclusion after Part 3. The latest trailer even gave hints that the big fight between Albus Dumbledore ( Jude Law ) and Grindelwald could take place in part 3, lest the series end without this pivotal event.

But we won’t know more until April 7, 2022, when «Fantastic Beasts 3: Secrets of Dumbledore» comes to our cinemas.
