Beyoncé’s ‘Renaissance’ Movie Plummets In Second Week Box Office Performance


Beyoncé‘s reign at the box office was short-lived as her concert film ‘Renaissance’ experienced a significant drop in its second week, falling to the fifth position. The film saw a staggering 77% decline in ticket sales domestically, trailing behind movies that have been in theaters for a longer period of time. Surprisingly, an anime film by Hayao Miyazaki claimed the top spot, leaving Beyoncé’s film in its wake.

Key Takeaway

Beyoncé’s concert film ‘Renaissance’ experienced a significant drop in ticket sales in its second week, falling to the fifth position at the box office. The film’s decline in performance highlights the competitive box office landscape and the challenges of maintaining momentum. However, this new distribution model presents opportunities for artists to have more control and benefit financially from their projects.

A Shocking Decline

‘Renaissance’ only managed to gross $5 million domestically during its second weekend, a far cry from its impressive $21 million opening weekend in North American markets. While the initial figures were promising, it pales in comparison to Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras’ concert movie, which earned a staggering $92 million in its opening weekend. Despite a 65% drop-off in ticket sales the following week, Swift’s film remained the top-grossing movie at that time.

Competition at the Box Office

‘Renaissance’ faced tough competition from other films that remained ahead of it in the box office rankings. The films in front of Beyoncé’s flick this week were “Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes” at the second position, followed by “Godzilla Minus One” at the third position, and “Trolls Band Together” at the fourth position.

The Significance for Beyoncé and AMC

Despite the decline in ticket sales, both Beyoncé and AMC, the distributor, likely view the results as a win. This new distribution model allows artists to have a higher percentage of the profits. It opens up new opportunities for artists like Beyoncé to connect with their audience in a different way and reap the rewards.
