Babylon, starring Brad Pitt & Margot Robbie, is Box-office Flop

Babylon Brad Pitt Margot Robbie

Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie’s movie Babylon, directed by Damien Chazelle, fared poorly at the box office when it was first released. Babylon was directed by Damien Chazelle, who has previously directed financially and critically successful films like La La Land and Whiplash. The movie stars Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie and opened in theatres last week. But the figures were different from what was anticipated.

Babylon debuted on December 23 in the US, during a typically lucrative time for movie releases. Yet, over the Christmas holiday, it brought in a pitiful $3.5 million. Since then, it has gradually increased; as of December 27, it was $5.3 million.

Margot Robbie, who, in addition to struggling with the Babylon box office, also starred in Amsterdam, one of the lowest-grossing movies of the year, isn’t having a good year in 2022. Her movie Amsterdam, released in October, received criticism and performed far worse financially than anticipated. 

Set in the 1920s, Babylon highlights the dark side of Hollywood, where corruption reigns. Despite the disappointing ticket sales, critics generally praised Robbie’s acting performance, and there is even speculation about an Oscar nomination.

The three-hour period dramedy Babylon by Damien Chazelle, which charts the pleasure and pain of Hollywood dreamers in the 1920s, stars the 32-year-old Oscar-nominated actress in front of a glittering ensemble cast that also includes: Tobey Maguire, Diego Calva, Olivia Wilde, Katherine Waterston, Li Jun Li, Max Minghella, Samara Weaving, Lukas Haas, Eric Roberts, Rory Scovel, Jovan Adepo, Spike Jonze, Phoebe Tonkin, Damon Gupton, PJ Byrne, Jeff Garlin, and Jean Smart.
