Diesel is a fine actor. He is proving his worth to his fans every time he releases a movie. every time the actor tries to bring in a new kind of movie for his fans. He loves to entertain his fans.
As you have seen that the box office has taken a huge beating from the coronavirus. Onward, in its second weekend, led with a mere 10.6 million dollars. Two of last weekend’s new releases were I Still believe and The Hunt which failed to crack 10 million dollars. All this led to the box office having its lowest turnout in 20 years. And because of the mass theatre closings and movie delays, the box office is likely to see its worst year in quite a long time.
But the biggest casualty this past week? Bloodshot.
The movie Bloodshot only managed to rake in 9.2 million dollars domestically and 24.3 million dollars worldwide. And throughout the rest of the week, the movie could not even muster another million. That was good enough for second place at the box office, but those figures also come in under the film’s 45 million budget.
And while the movie Bloodshot will undoubtedly finish in the black after an early VOD release, it does mark the end of something very important: Vin Diesel’s incredible box office hot streak. The actor has become a fixture in so many different franchises at this point. XXX, Fast and Furious, Guardians of the Galaxy, Riddick- all these cinematic universes continually churn out hundreds of millions of dollars every year.
Throughout his career, Diesel starred in four of the 46 movies to ever eclipse 1 billion dollars worldwide: Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, Fate of the Furious and Furious 7. And five more of his movies made more than 500 million marks on the global market: Fast Five, Fast and Furious 6, Guardians of The Galaxy, Guardians Of the galaxy 2, Ralph Breaks the Internet.
While the film might not have been one of Diesel’s most lucrative outings, either way, Diesel seemingly has the power to muscle any movie to box office success—and that could have been the case with Bloodshot. But thanks to these unprecedented times, we’ll never know.
