Despite the absolute fiasco at the international box office, made even more serious by the coronavirus pandemic last August, and the rejection by specialized critics, The New Mutants he took a small albeit significant revenge on everyone by reaching an unusual record right after the release on home video.
Josh Boone's film in the last week turned out indeed the best-selling among the home video releases, also becoming the most popular film in the Fandango ranking (which precisely monitors the sales of titles on home video). The New Mutants it is also first in the ranking of Vudu, a platform once belonging to the Walmart group.
The film set in the X-Men universe and last of the pre-Disney era of mutants has given films such as The wrong day con Russell Crowe, l'horror Come Play or the live-action of Mulan of Disney itself (stopped in fourth position).
Released at the end of last August, The New Mutants grossed just $ 45 million worldwide (against a budget of about 70 million) resulting in a huge flop for the study, but the fact that it came out with an ongoing pandemic has certainly aggravated the data and lowered expectations already greatly reduced following the continuous postponements of the project, which we remember was shot in 2017.
