Sooo...
Onward grossed its projected 40 million DOM, but only made 28 OS, for a total of 68 million WW. It was projected to make 95-100 million WW. This is a bit concerning and disappointing, considering how much I enjoyed, and was wondering if this hurts other directors like Brian Fee, Domee Shi, and Kristen Lesters movies getting made? I mean coronavirus is a big part in this, but it still is concerning. 
Thoughts?

Last year around this same time, the cold temperatures and blizzards kept a lot of people in instead of flocking to the theaters. I think March is just a tough time to open up because things like this keep happening. I wonder what would have happened if it had released in early summers and Soul around Thanksgiving time...?

I just hope they really think about what the reasons are for the disappointing box office, and don't just point to "it's an original" or "coronavirus happened". I want them to really look into it and try and figure out the reason this movie, specifically failed.

Maybe it's either of those, but I saw a ton of people, even before the disease became an issue, saying it didn't look worthwhile. I want the possibility that they just made a movie that didn't connect to be at least considered, so, if that's the truth, they can try to avoid that in the future, instead of just taking the easy, creatively bankrupt route.

I'm pessimistic, though.

I feel like it’s probably a combination of two things:

1. the trailers said a lot about the movie and many people could successfully predict the ending just based on the trailers. This could potentially turn people off from seeing it in the first place. I saw the movie at an advance screening and thought it was very good but was not at all surprised by most of the plot points. In fact, I’m seeing it again on Saturday with a friend but I don’t know how many non-fans are seeing it multiple times in the theater.

2. Coronavirus has had widespread economic damage. I’ve seen many articles point out that every theater in the US is still open, but there’s still the unanswered question of how many people are simply not going to the theaters because of COVID-19 concerns? Further box office damage is in Japan (where both Onward and Mulan are both postponed indefinitely), Italy (where the entire country is on lockdown), and France (where some theaters are closed). The stock market crashed the other day because oil prices went into free fall, which could make people more reluctant to spend money if a recession is to occur and the Fed’s emergency .5% drop in interest rates may have negative impacts depending on how the general public interprets its, which could also make people reluctant to spend money.

There may be other issues that caused it, but I feel like based on what we know now it’s likely a combination of at least these two.

Do you guys think maybe the idea behind the story might have hurt it as well? I thought about this little after talking with my violin teacher today; she had lost her daughter to a tragic accident and was unsure if she should take her boys to go see the film since one of them tried to save her. I told her that I thought since I felt the message was about closure with death it might be a good idea to see it...but I don't know. Could the premise also have hurt it a bit?

Some families are likely staying away due to a darker theme for a 'family' movie, though I'd assume the majority have been scared to take kids to theaters due to COVID-19, especially this week with the lowest domestic box office numbers in 20+ years, I hope they can rerelease the film when this is more contained, though it came out at such a weird time.

I think Pixar should only release one movie per year, since they're too expensive they should only release one movie in the summer and market it as an EVENT

I feel like Onward was treated more as an appetizer before Soul, maybe they could open Pixar Canada again and make some movies there for lower budgets that they can release without having to market the hell out of it

This article points out that adjusted for inflation, Onward was the worst 10-day start ever for a Pixar film. This past weekend, not a single film passed $15 million domestically.

I saw Onward with my friend yesterday (second time seeing it, after the marathon). The marathon was about 75% filled and the showing yesterday had 3 people in the auditorium (including my friend and I). The lobby was also completely empty; usually it’s packed when I see movies at that theater, as are the screening rooms, no matter what movie I’m seeing.

At the time we saw the movie, we didn’t even know what we just found out this morning - that an executive order in our county is closing all schools for 2 weeks, which may further deter people from going to the movies (although with teenagers, you never know if they’ll follow the purpose of closing schools or not, which could help the local box office).

This article points out that this weekend had the lowest turnout in 20 years. There was even higher turnout the weekend after 9/11 than this weekend.

Sad to say it, but I don’t think it will cross 150 million WW

Just a quick update. It's not huge by any means, but it's nice to see Onward getting even a little more attention related to Box Office. A recent headline from the UK, Disney leads UK box office with ‘Onward’, ‘Star Wars’

Quote:
Disney has continued to lead the post-lockdown box office in the UK and Ireland with Pixar animation Onward and a re-release of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back taking the top two slots.

In the absence of any new major releases, Onward returned to the top of the box office with £48,142 across 128 locations from Friday to Sunday (July 17-19) – an average of £376.
