Either way, with a screenplay by Tony Kushner and Rita Moreno returning to his groundbreaking film 60 years later, the lavish $ 100 million production has already generated significant buzz for the Oscars.
Six months ago, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights launched with $ 11 million six months ago, while Dear Evan Hanson debuted with $ 7.4 million in September.
West Side Story is one of the most beloved musicals. The 1961 film, directed by Jerome Robbins and Robert Wise, grossed $ 43.7 million (roughly $ 400 million adjusted for inflation) and won 10 Oscars, including Best Picture.
Hopes have long rested on Spielberg, with his spectacular song and dance, to bring back some of the movies’ mojos. Instead, not much right now outside of Marvel’s versions is finding a mainstream audience.
The film grossed $ 4.4 million in 37 overseas territories. Because the film features a transgender character, it has been banned in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman, and Kuwait.
David A. Gross, who heads movie consulting firm Franchise Entertainment, called the opening “sweet.”
If West Side Story is to be profitable, it will have to connect internationally and nationally, ”Gross said in an email to TBEN. “So far the first European openings have been good, but it will be a challenge with shooting conditions as difficult as they are.”
Spielberg’s film was a long time coming. Its release was delayed for a year by the pandemic. It was developed by 20th Century TBEN, which was acquired by Walt Disney Co. shortly before production began. Days before its Lincoln Center premiere, revered musical lyricist Stephen Sondheim died at the age of 91.
The weekend runner-up went to Disney’s Encanto animation, which held up well in its third week, losing just 27% from the previous weekend. It grossed $ 9.6 million from Friday to Sunday, bringing its cumulative total to $ 71.3 million domestically and $ 80.5 million internationally.
