It’s a rough start for Katy Perry at theatres. Her documentary, “Part of Me,” didn’t even break its $12 million budget in four days at theatres.In comparison, Justin Bieber‘s “Never Say Never” earned $29.5 million and the Jonas Brothers‘ “The 3D Concert Experience” earned $12.5 million over the course of three days.
This isn’t surprising considering the summer’s rather bloated film release schedule. With successful films, “Ted,” “Magic Mike,” “Madea” and now “Spider-Man” playing at theatres, it’s easy for a documentary to reap the small straw at the box office.
Any other release time for “Part of Me,” and it may have seen higher figures.
With more summer blockbusters on the way in “The Dark Knight Rises,” “Total Recall” and “The Bourne Legacy,” Perry’s film won’t have much room to make up for box-office losses.
Meanwhile, though Andrew Garfield‘s “Spider-Man” saw overall success at theatres this weekend, the reboot didn’t live up to its predecessors, seeing the lowest start of any Spider-Man film to date.
Out of the top 10 this week are “Snow White and the Huntsman” and “Prometheus” after a six and five week run respectively.
