🏰 Haunted Mansion’s Spooky Debut: A $9.9M Day, But Will It Conquer The Box Office? 🎬

TL;DR; Disney’s latest flick, Haunted Mansion, nabs $9.9 million on day one, overshadowed by Barbie and Oppenheimer’s cinematic reign. Can this star-filled film spook its way to the top? 🤩

Haunted Mansion, drawing inspiration from Disney’s iconic park attraction, faced a less than haunting debut, raking in a mere $9.9 million on the opening. It’s a fierce jungle out there in the cinema universe! 🌌 With heavyweights like Barbie and Oppenheimer in theaters, one has to wonder: can a house full of ghosts outshine plastic perfection and atomic history? 🤔

Projected to gather between $25 and $30 million this weekend, some cinematic skeptics think Haunted Mansion might not hit that mark. So, did Disney throw in a ghostly towel too soon? 👻💸

The house of mouse has witnessed some heavyweights this summer. From the soaring Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. to some not-so-splashing performances by The Little Mermaid, Disney’s had its cinematic rollercoaster. And, oh boy! Don’t get us started on Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. Anyone remember that? 🎢🤷

While Haunted Mansion carries the weight of a $150 million production budget, hope isn’t lost. Let’s spill some tea: Elemental, another Disney project, initially didn’t cast the spell everyone hoped for. However, with an audience rating hovering at “B+” on CinemaScore, it turned its game around. Can Haunted Mansion pull a similar magic trick? ✨🎩

It’s not all spooks and shadows for the Mansion though. With a Hollywood who’s who like LaKeith Stanfield, Tiffany Haddish, and even Jared Leto making up the cast, perhaps it’s just waiting for Barbie and Oppenheimer to vacate the cinematic limelight. After all, who can resist Danny DeVito in a ghostly role? 🌟

Question Time! 🎤 With a line-up boasting such star power, does the Haunted Mansion’s performance show that audience choices have evolved? Or is it just that they prefer their ghosts a tad more terrifying?

What do you think? Will the Mansion rise as others fade, or is it doomed to be just another ghost in the cinematic machine? 😱🍿
