Shocking. Mystifying. I mean, who could have seen this coming? Guy Ritchie's "King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword" has completely tanked at the North American Box-Office. Of course, I am kidding. Most experts have predicted that this summer will be the worst in a decade for Hollywood. It seems like they've overbooked, overworked if you will, themselves into sequel oblivion. The problem this summer is just this, too many useless sequels, prequels have been booked. The movies with an only original idea are Christopher Nolan's "Dunkirk," and Edgar Wright's "Baby Driver." A fifth Transformers movie is being released ditto a sixth Alien (I'll be talking about that film later today in another post). Why was "King Arthur" greenlit? They didn't know that people would not be interested in that story? People were sure as hell not going to go see the film because Guy Ritchie directed it. The film's budget is $175 million, good luck nabbing even half of that back in worldwide receipts Warner Bros.

1. “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2” — $63 million ($246.1 mil.)
2. “Snatched” — $17.5 million
3. “King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword” — $14.7 million
4. “The Fate Of The Furious” — $5.3 million ($215 mil.)
5. “The Boss Baby” — $4.6 million ($162.3 mil.)
6. “Beauty And The Beast” — $3.8 million ($493.1 mil.)
7. “How To Be A Latin Lover” — $3.7 million ($26.1 mil.)
8. “Lowriders” — $2.4 million
9. “The Circle” — $1.7 million ($18.9 mil.)
10. “Baahubali 2: The Conclusion” — $1.5 million ($18.9 mil.)
