Scream ’ Tops ‘Spider-Man’ But Drops 71%

'The King's Daughter ' and ' Redeeming Love ' both debuted to relative silence in an inexplicably empty post-holiday weekend.

The King’s Daughter, which was shot eight years ago, into 2,170 theaters. Starring Pierce Brosnan, Kaya Scodelario and Benjamin Walker (the latter two have since married and had two kids), the film is based on Vonda N. McIntyre’s 1997 novelThe Moon and the Sun

, which (amusingly in retrospect) won the Nebula Award for Best Novel that year besting George R.R. Martin’sA Game of Thrones. The film was shot way in 2014 with the initial intent of Paramount releasing it on April 10, 2015.The King’s Daughter, about a daughter of royalty who forms a special bond with a mermaid which her father has kidnapped to achieve immortality, is “just a movie.” It’s not excessively good, but nor does it do anything more egregious that merely exist as a singular 97-minute one-and-done story. The $40 million budget is on the screen, even with some dubious special effects work concerning Fan Bingbing’s magical mermaid, and it’s a relic of a time when Hollywood thought they could conquer China and before studio programmers got wiped off the theatrical map by the streaming boom. Granted, it wouldn’t have been a hit even in early 2015, but its $260,000 Friday and likely $590,000 weekend seems right for 2022.
