The big budget telling of Peter Pan’s origins was set to be a summer release, but re-shoots meant it was pushed back to October – and this decision has not paid off.
Released in over 3,000 screens, Pan only managed to pull in $15.3 million on its opening weekend. The Joe Wright directed feature cost upwards of $150 million, so it can join the likes of Jupiter Ascending, Tomorrowland and Fantastic Four in the big budget flops for 2015. The film did score a B+ on CinemaScore, so it could have longevity and build its money over time, but it will likely fail to reach the profit margin.
Pan came in third behind Hotel Transylvania 2 in its third week ($20.3 million) and The Martian ($37 million).
Pan features a cast that includes Hugh Jackman (X-Men: Apocalypse), Levi Miller (Supergirl), Rooney Mara (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy), Cara Delevingne (Suicide Squad), Adeel Akhtar (Four Lions), Amanda Seyfried (A Million Ways to Die in the West), Nonso Anozie (Game of Thrones), Kathy Burke (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Jack Charles (Mystery Road), Taejoo Na (The Kick), Kurt Egyiawan (Skyfall), Lewis MacDougall and Leni Zieglmeier.
