The latest film from The Witch and The Lighthouse chief Robert Eggers, Viking epic The Northman is now playing in theaters, and opening weekend box office numbers are in. The Northman is presently playing in 3,234 theaters here in the United States, where it made $12 million this past end of the week. The international number sits near by at $11,528,000
That’s a pretty solid number for an arthouse activity film such as this one, but the problem here is that Center Highlights spent distant more on The Northman than one might have anticipated them to. Supposedly, the film’s generation budget was somewhere within the $70-90 million extend, all but guaranteeing that The Northman won’t be able to create that cash back in theaters. So here we have a circumstance where a movie is making a respectable stand at the box office, but it’s fair not enough given the massive sum of cash it took to get that vision onto the screen. The genuine champs here are the fans, who get another Robert Eggers movie at a much bigger scale than ever some time recently. For Eggers, his biggest around the world add up to in this way distant is frightfulness movie debut The Witch, which frightened up $40 million in 2015. Follow-up motion picture The Lighthouse pulled in fair $18 million in 2019, putting The Northman right between the two at the moment.

All of it makes a point by point and wealthy tapestry of Viking life.” Meagan includes, “The beating heart of The Northman may be a recognizable story of revenge, but in Eggers’ hands, it’s at slightest profoundly engrossing.” From acclaimed director Robert Eggers comes The Northman featuring Alexander Skarsgard, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nicole Kidman, Claes Blast, Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, and Björk.
