‘Birds of Prey’ Struggles in Its Opening Weekend, But is It a Flop?

by Nick Kush
Birds of Prey

Birds of Prey came in well below studio and industry expectations, battling a slew of Oscar-nominated movies as well as other popular movies in their latest weeks of release. Was it the quality of the film that did Birds of Prey in? Or was it many other factors? We break down the lack of success so far, and what future weeks may hold.

And in preparation for Valentine’s Day weekend, Collin and I preview the long list of movies coming out next week: movies like Sonic the Hedgehog, The Photograph, Downhill, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, and others. All this and more in this week’s episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!
