Overwhelmingly positive reviews, a schedule without much competition and a star loved by everyone have not saved The Specialist from failure

I am the guy who will tell you all the latest news in film and television in 3DJuegos. I am passionate about science fiction, fantasy, superheroes and movie curiosities, those little behind-the-scenes stories of the directors and actors we have been following since we were little. My favorite saga? Star Trek. My favorite character? Superman, although lately a little more John Wick. One last thing, I promise not to bore you too much in my topics. LinkedIn

We are not only talking about superhero fatigue, but also about a clear disinterest in cinema in general. The announcement that The Fall Guy (The Specialist) can be enjoyed this week from movie sales and rental services in the US has sparked a new debate on networks about the bleak panorama that Hollywood is facing since the pandemic with very painful fiascos.

When we face a failure of this magnitude there is never a lack of arguments that justify itsuch as a very tight release schedule (was not the case), a franchise to which the public is turning its back (was not the case), a director who generates suspicion among the audience (was not the case), or a controversial star roster on networks capable of favoring a boycott (was not the case).

All excuses are over. Can we do something now?” he said yesterday https://twitter.com/comicaccuracy/status/1792602322851299834 provoking wide evaluations from the rest of the users of the social network in the face of what many see as an unfair fiasco. And, we repeat, The Fall Guy (The Specialist) not only had a great star as the headliner who came with the momentum of the Barbie phenomenon of 2023, but also excellent word of mouth that sold very funny footage.

But it is costing, and more and more we hear headlines about this or another film that has sunk in box office, causing serious losses for its producers, and also complicating thinking about new sagas that replace the current ones that, on the other hand, are not also going through their best moment, as shown by the bad numbers of Fast & Furious or Marvel Studios in 2023.

Many look to streaming platforms

Having The Fall Guy on platforms, even if not through an easily accessible subscription service like Netflix, is also a declaration of industry surrender for many who, like me, may think that leaving an exclusive lead of less than a month for a movie is how to invite the viewer to wait patiently at home and on its 4K HDR screen your opportunity.

Traditional firms that made a very serious commitment to home cinema, such as Warner Bros. and Disney, changed their minds and they decided to delay the debut on their platforms of their latest films, but the seed has already been laid and there are many who consider that cinema has lost that premium character of yesteryear. It will be difficult, beyond event films with “painful spoilers” like Spider-Man: No Way Home, to reverse this opinion in the short term.

And meanwhile, we add unfair failures like The Fall Guy, which with a budget of 150 million dollars has only raised 127.4 million dollars, money to be distributed among several hands and to which we must also add the expenses in publicity that Universal has wanted to recover with a premature digital premiere. The movie can still be seen in cinemas in Spain.

Thus, whether due to the possibility of watching blockbusters at home in record time, due to poor marketing campaigns or due to a lack of interest in cinema as a leisure activity among new audiences after the pandemic, Hollywood has a problem and should face it as soon as possible to secure your future. Maybe It’s time to say goodbye to movies with exorbitant budgets.
