‘DUMBO’ FAILS TO SOAR – (04/01/2019)

Tim Burton’s live action remake of the 1941 Disney classic Dumbo didn’t exactly flop at the box office, it certainly wasn’t hitting any high notes. On Sunday, Disney reported that the film, which stars Colin Farrell and Danny Devito, pulled in $45 million domestically against a $170 million production budget. 

That accounts for less than half of what Beauty and the Beast, The Jungle Book and Burton’s Alice in Wonderland brought in. Critics were mixed, delivering a so-so 53% approval on Rotten Tomatoes, but audiences were more enthused, delivering an A- on CinemaScore

Dumbo bumped Jordan Peele’s Us to second place, which brought in $33.6 million in receipts. Us cost $20 million to produce and has earned $128.2 million domestically in two weeks out.
