As I wrote last week, Green Lantern’s greatest problem is that its foreign box office returns are weak, which is confirmed in a story at ComicBookmovie.com. The article, among other things, tells of a precipitous box office fall-off the film has recently experienced. According to Boxofficemojo, “Green Lantern” has currently earned $76 million dollars, domestically, after about two weeks of release.
This brings Green Lantern’s total box office receipts to just over $93 million, though it’s worth mentioning that only $16 million of that total came from foreign box office totals.
The film is into its third week. It’s possible that foreign box office receipts will increase, though the question is why would that happen, especially since “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” and “Captain America: The First Avenger” are on the horizon.
Addendum: I was reading this morning on Aint It Cool News that Warner Brothers is considering a sequel to Green Lantern. While there are some scenarios where I can see it coming to pass, I think that odds of this are really, really low.
