Margot Robbie will conclude the year with a letdown. Her most recent movie, Babylon (2022), was anticipated to be a success during the holidays. Still, sadly, it has only made $ 6 million so far while having a close to $ 80 million budget. The movie Amsterdam, released in October, received a barrage of criticism and performed far worse financially than anticipated. Now, people are making jokes about Robbie’s curse.
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.
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 Brad Pitt and Tobey Maguire.
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.
