X-Men: Dark Phoenix suffers biggest box office drop of any superhero movie ever

After scoring the lowest opening weekend for any instalment in the franchise, Fox’s X-Men: Dark Phoenix has now set another unenviable record with the film suffering the biggest second weekend box office drop not just for an X-Men film, but for any superhero movie ever.

As reported by Forbes, Dark Phoenix earned $14 million on its opening day domestically, but was down a whopping 83.2% week on week with just $2.3 million from its second Friday. That puts it ahead of the previous worst Friday-to-Friday drop of 81% set by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016.

Overall, Dark Phoenix added just $9 million from North America in its second weekend (down 72.6%) while it finished up the weekend with a total of $204 million worldwide – a disastrous result given that Fox is said to have pumped over $350 million into the film’s production, reshoots and marketing.
