Following its lackluster opening weekend and 83% drop-off the following week, X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be leaving over 1,600 in its third weekend.

Grossing $208 million USD worldwide on a $200 million USD budget, The Dark Phoenix opened in the U.S. to an abysmal $33 million USD and just $2.348 million USD the week after. This marks the film, the final movie of the X-Men franchise from Fox, as the worst preforming installment by far.

Cinemablend notes that longtime X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner has yet to even see the movie, citing she’s bee busy completing the final season of Legion, which is part of the X-Men franchise. “I have to be honest with you, I have not seen it yet. I’m sure I will be, but I have not seen it,” she said.

The Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg has made comments on the film’s weak performance on KCRW podcast The Business, stating: “I’m here and I’m saying when a movie doesn’t work, put it on me. I’m the writer/director of the movie, the movie didn’t connect with audiences, that’s on me.”
