Harrison Ford starred ‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny’ has made a slow start recording a slight profit of $82 million in the last six days since its release on 28 June.
The finale earned $11.8 million on Monday, pushing its domestic total to $71 million and carries a production budget of $295 million, reports Yahoo Entertainment.
Along with an underwhelming debut overseas and upcoming July releases like “Oppenheimer” and “Mission: Impossible 7” which also look to target older viewers, things aren’t looking bright for “Indiana Jones.”
“Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” was always billed as the final entry in the globe-trotting action series.
Ford reprises his role as the whip-cracking archeologist, teaming up with his goddaughter (played by Phoebe Waller-Bridge) to protect a powerful artifact from the hands of Nazis during the Space Age. James Mangold helmed the feature, taking over after franchise director Steven Spielberg exited the project during development.
Along with the top slot, Disney also claimed third with the Pixar romance “Elemental.”
The animated adventure added $3 million on Monday to push its domestic total to $92 million, inching closer to surpassing the $100 million mark.
