The Northman Box Office Collection: Director Robert Eggers had an Unexpected Box Office Result.

‘The Northman,’ a Vikings vengeance story directed by Robert Eggers, has gotten largely excellent reviews from reviewers and audiences, with plaudits for its directing, star cast performances, and production screenplay. According to reports, ‘The Northman’ is one of the finest Vikings films.

Unfortunately, despite good reviews from audiences and critics, Robert Eggers’ Vikings vengeance story ‘The Northman’ has failed at the movie office, which is a stunning development for filmmakers and reviewers alike, particularly for Robert Eggers.

Is The Northman Hit Or Flop?

The Northman box office collectionAccording to estimates, the Vikings’ vengeance story ‘The Northman,’ which opened in more than 3200 theatres in the United States on April 22, 2022, only made $5.6 million on its first day and $12.29 million on its first weekend at the domestic (USA & Canada) box office. Overall, ‘The Northman’ has grossed $33.85 million domestically (in the United States and Canada) and $66.78 million internationally, including $32.92 million in foreign theaters[1]. ‘The Northman’ has a production budget of $70-90 million dollars.

Despite strong critical reviews, there is little question that ‘The Northman‘ failed to sell well at the box office and not only that, but it also performed below expectations. Critics predicted a $20 million weekend for ‘The Northman,’ but with a total of $12 million, the picture fell short of expectations, and it was a disappointing result for ‘The Northman.’

According to reports, ‘The Northman’ requires $200 million in the box office to cover its production and P&A costs but based on current performance, there is no indication that the film will gross $100 million, and overall, ‘The Northman’ is one of the biggest box office failures of 2022, alongside ‘Moonfall’ and ‘Cyrano.’

The failure of ‘The Northman’ is owing to the film’s release alongside DreamWorks’ ‘The Bad Guys’ and Lionsgate’s ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent,’ and as a result of these films’ release, ‘The Northman’ was only distributed in 3234 domestic theatres instead of 4000+ cinemas. Not only that, but DreamWorks’ ‘The Bad Guys’ is a huge picture that impacted the box office performance of ‘The Northman’ since the buzz around ‘The Bad Guys’ is too great, and its release alongside it was not a smart move for the producers of ‘The Northman.’

‘The Northman,’ directed by Robert Eggers and produced on a $70-90 million budget, has proven to be a fine film for Riggers in terms of critical acclaim but a dud at the box office. In terms of critical reception, ‘The Northman’ got a 7.4/10* on IMDb and an 89/100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 342 reviews.

The Northman Worldwide B0x Office Collection:

The Northman’s opening weekend was a box office disaster, generating only $ 23 million in the United States, despite Eggers’ budget of $ 70-90 million.

With a worldwide reach of 23.5 million, “The Northman” has only received 11.5 million from 41 international markets.

The film ‘The Northman’ was released in theatres all around the country. Over the weekend, the picture grossed $8.12 million in 3,865 North American theatres, placing it at No. 4 on the domestic box office rankings.

According to box office analysts, “The Northman” will need to collect at least $ 140 million worldwide to cover its production costs. Adding a million to the marketing budget, on the other hand, would need a film like “The Northman” to make roughly $ 200.

Domestic $33,606,495
International $30,792,000
Gross worldwide $64,398,495
