Charlie’s Angels, the third feature-length instalment of the classic spy comedy series, was released across North America on Friday, Nov. 15.
It opened beside James Mangold’s sports-fuelled biopic, Ford v Ferrari, which pulled in more than $31 million within North America and $52.4 million worldwide.
In partnership with Perfect World Pictures and 2.0 Entertainment, Sony Pictures and Banks, 45, were working with a $48-million budget before marketing costs, meaning the film companies could each lose a sizable amount in finances as a result of the poor showing.
This loss makes 2019’s Charlie’s Angels the third Hollywood sequel in a row to flop at the box office after Doctor Sleep and Terminator: Dark Fate.
The original Charlie’s Angels film (2000) and its 2003 sequel, Full Throttle, starred Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu and Drew Barrymore, and the two movies did significantly better in their respective box office runs.
The first raked in $264.1 million, while Full Throttle followed closely behind at a whopping $259.1 million, with each easily surpassing its budget.
Charlie’s Angels is now playing in cinemas across North America.
