Lionsgate’s “Hellboy” reboot has been pulled from cinemas after just five weeks in theaters, the studio pulling the plug on the gritty reboot which has wrapped its run with just $21.9 million domestic gross.
The film had an opening weekend of $12.05 million, meaning it closed out with a box office multiplier of 1.81x which is pretty terrible. In comparison, the previous two films made $59.6 million and $75.9 million domestically.
Overseas didn’t save it either, the movie taking around $18.1 million thus far, bringing its global total to just a few dollars shy of $40 million. Made for a production budget of $50 million, the film is still going to lose money. A home media release date has yet to be announced.
