“The Matrix Resurrections” will have a box office of more than tens of millions of dollars in the first three days of the first weekend in North America.

On this basis, its box office still plummeted by 68% the next weekend, and its ten-day box office totaled 30.9 million US dollars, which is not as good as the box office of “The Matrix 3” in the first weekend.

The situation of “The Matrix Resurrections” in overseas regions is still bad, and it has no more than 10 million U.S. dollars in various markets.

“The Matrix Resurrections” is expected to land on the Chinese mainland market on January 14.

However, due to its streaming media distribution strategy, it landed in China nearly one month later than the international market, and basically all the things that you want to watch and don’t want to watch are finished.

How many viewers would be willing to go to the theater to make up for such a poorly-reputed sequel movie?

Based on the above situation, “The Matrix Resurrections” may be destined to be a commercial failure movie.

“The Matrix Resurrections” is the last film in Warner’s controversial 2021 release strategy.

This film, like the previous Warner release films, is released on theatrical synchronous streaming media platform.

Therefore, this also greatly affected the box office appeal of “The Matrix Resurrections”.

Although the strategy also includes films with lesser box office influence such as “Godzilla vs. Kong” and “Dune”, these films are still in the minority.

Most of the films released under this strategy did not perform well at the box office.

Fortunately, this year Warner resumed its traditional distribution strategy and returned to the model of streaming media platforms after the theater online shows, although the theater exclusive period has been significantly shortened.
