‘Cruella’ Earned $42.6 Million at the Global Box Office Over Opening Weekend. As moviegoers begin making their way back to the movies we are seeing a steady rise in opening weekend box office numbers. Likely it will take a few months, if not a year or two for audiences to fully return to theaters. Over Memorial Day weekend A Quiet Place II and Disney’s Cruella both premiered in theaters, with Cruella also opening direct-to-consumer via Disney+ Premier Access.
Though Disney has yet to reveal the earnings for Cruella‘s debut via Disney+ Premier Access, we do have the domestic and global box office earnings thanks to BoxOfficeMojo. Disney’s Cruella earned the number 3 slot in theaters, falling behind both F9 and A Quiet Place II. Domestically, Cruella earned $26.5 Million with additional earnings of $16.1 Million from International markets, bringing the grand total up to $42.6 Million.
“Disney’s “Cruella,” an all-new live-action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious – and notoriously fashionable – villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil. “Cruella,” which is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets. One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute, played by Emma Thompson. But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent Cruella.“
If you are comfortable doing so, we highly recommend going to go see Cruella in theaters so you can thoroughly enjoy the thematic elements of the film, but for those who may not be ready to venture to movie theaters, Cruella is currently available to stream via Disney+ Premier Access.
