    Venom Movie Crushes Fantastic Beasts 2 at China Box Office

    23 days ago - By Screen Rant

    Venom may no longer be ruling the stateside box office, but in China, Sony's symbiote anti-hero just destroyed Fantastic Beasts 2 financially.

It was well-received critically (though not as beloved as the mainline series) and grossed $814 million...

  • ‘Fantastic Beasts 2' Falling Below Box Office Expectations With $62 Million Opening

    24 days ago - By The Wrap

    “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is looking at a decent domestic box office opening with $62 million from 4,163 locations. But with the lowest domestic opening in the history of Warner Bros.' “Harry Potter” franchise, “Fantastic Beasts” is looking more and more like a series that will rely on overseas interest for success.
    The domestic start for “Grindelwald” is down 17 percent from the $74.4 million opening of the first “Fantastic Beasts,” which had a much better reception with an A on CinemaScore and a 74 percent Rotten Tomatoes score. “Grindelwald,” on the other hand, has...
