Justin Bieber's Believe Is A Box Office Flop!

justin bieber believe box office flop

Maybe that whole retirement hubbub was Justin Bieber's way of telling his fans to get to the movies!

Because according to early estimates, Believe is doing UN-believably poorly at the theaters!

While the dragon from The Hobbit was defeating The Wolf Of Wall Street in the Game Of Thrones at the box office on Christmas Day, little prince Biebs wasn't even sitting ringside!

Believe didn't even crack the top ten! The movie promising to shed new light on the singer's troubled year made just $1.2 million, putting it at 14th for the day, behind Anchorman 2, American Hustle, Frozen, and Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Not great considering the amaze theater turnout for Christmas 2013, and a far cry from Never Say Never's $30 million opening weekend!

Ouch! Maybe retiring doesn't sound so funny now.

    He is quickly joining the ranks of those adorable, charming little boys who become bland adults. Leif Garrett, Macauley Culkin, Sean Cassidy, Jonas Brothers, and so many others who are long forgotten.

    Maybe some people are tired of seeing him showing his underwear. I sure am.

    Because who the fuck want to go see a Bieber movie on Christmas? No one…

    All those screaming pre teen fans are now older and probably wouldn't be caught dead seeing a fanboy movie now. His ardent fans would still go. A great concert tape might still sell to his base. His missing fans are probably trying to get on their feet as adults, and money is uber tight now.

    I think you have to adjust the figures for lack of promotion through Paramount, also the cost base was significantly lower, at 4 million versus 12 mill for the previous film. It's an independent release, so after we see the international figures, and what they get for the entire release + dvds sales, television royalties etc.
    That said, even with adjustments it looks to be around ~70% below the opening day sales for the Never Say Never film.
    The would be hard pressed not to produce an acceptable ROI given their prudent budget for the film.

    IMDB have a rating of 1.3 out of 10 so the movie was a bomb from that stand point. I note they avoided having critics review it prior to the release date; i would have done that too !
    It based off a sample of 4,069 users, which is sufficient size to be representative of the population, but we don't know if there is bias with the users who selected them (i.e. did a lot of haters just go on there and try and put unrealistically low votes), and if it was something that was randomly selected.

    Disappointing because i saw the movie and it was so good.

    This is another hateful report: the fact is that it's a 4 million dollar documentary released on a bad day for it since a lot of his young fans could not go. It was released to a third,[ BY REQUEST] of the theaters of his earlier movie so obviously it will not do as well. Finally, it will make up more than it's cost in the coming days. To Repeat: it's a limited release. Stop the hate!

    Re: zass – I can assure you that a lot of the reviewers did not even see the movie. They just trash it for the sake of it. The movie DID receive good reviews from film critics such as that of the L.A. Times and elsewhere; of course a few don't like him or care about him so they will trash it. My earlier statement above is based on fact some could see clippings on you tube and based on that trash it.

    I'm not surprised because he didn't even promote the movie. The only time he promoted it was when he did an interview at a radio station. Releasing this movie on christmas was a bad idea. He should've waited until next year

    Oh come the f*ck on Perez….Believe was released in a VERY limited number of Theaters. It's not like anyone was expecting it to be #1 with all the big dollar box office roll outs. That's ridiculous. I saw it Christmas Day and it was great. I'll go see it again, and I am not a "screaming pre-teen" fan by any means.

    Might have helped promote the film had he not looked so miserable and arrogant at it's premiere, hardly a good sell!

    Re: Hmm – You sure know your stuff. His true fans will love it, and think it will probably do well enough over time.

    I guess no one give a crap about this A$$hole PUNK anymore? Give it up, Dickwad, we don't care about you!!!! I can't wait until you fall into a deep deep deep hole, never to be seen or heard from again!!!!!!

    Re: @v@
    Hopefully will pick up over the next couple of weeks.
    Wall Street Journal have corrected their inaccuracies in their article in relation to the perceived "flop." I was very surprised a reputable source would make such a glaring inaccuracy (they said the film cost 15 million, instead of 4 million), which looks as though the author didn't even bother to research it thoroughly. That is unforgivable for the WSJ as many people rely on the figures they give.
    Apparently according to the author, sales for day 2 are a little higher, so I think this is just a case of the public misinterpreting the purpose of this project. It was never destined to smash box office records given it's intentional limited release and budgetary constraints.

    1) Little to no promotion: as I am not a Belieber, I did not see any advertisements for the movie, compared to other musician documentaries like This is Us.
    2) It was released on Christmas Day: many of his fans are young. These fans can't go see the movie because it's during the holidays.
