    Sydney Sweeney Has A Brutally Honest Reaction To The Box Office Collapse Of ‘Madame Web’

    The box office is seemingly casting a dark shadow over the Marvel universe with the failure of its latest release ‘Madame Web‘. The film with stars like Dakota Johnson and Sydney Sweeney has fallen short of expectations. The box office returns of the film are hovering around $80 million against a nearly $100 million budget, with no hopes for profit whatsoever.

    The chief focus of the film is on its lead character played by Dakota Johnson, alongside Sydney Sweeney playing Julia Carpenter in the film. Known for her roles in ‘Anyone But You‘ and ‘Euphoria’, the actress is seemingly facing the harsh reality of the failure of her latest venture. Here’s what the actress has said.

    Actress Sydney Sweeney is well aware of the struggles her latest film ‘Madame Web‘ is dealing with at the box office. The actress has not shied away from addressing its underwhelming performance during a recent appearance on Saturday Night Live. In a self-deprecating comment, she humorously told the audience, “you definitely did not see me in Madame Web“.

    The Marvel film is facing some major financial woes because of its critical reception. With a dismal 13 percent score on the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer and a modest 57 percent audience rating, the film has failed to achieve what it may have aimed at.

    Compared to Sony’s last release, ‘Morbius’, the Dakota Johnson film is falling short in terms of both critical acclaim and audience appeal. Moreover, the film’s box office trajectory offers little hope.

    Released on February 14, ‘Madame Web‘ has struggled to even approach the $200 million mark needed to break even. Despite being in theaters for three weeks, its performance suggests a bleak outlook for its future profitability.

    As Sony is now gearing for the release of a movie related to the Spider-Man Universe, concerns are rife with the situation of ‘Dakota Johnson film. The film’s lackluster reception has cast doubt on the future of the SSU, leaving the studio with uncertain prospects for its cinematic universe.

    As for the film’s streaming release, Sony is yet to announce a timeline. With negative word-of-mouth and little prospect for redemption, the film stands as another casualty in a year that already saw enough box office disappointments.
