Emma Watson’s new film has flopped in the United kingdom box office, taking under ￡50.
Despite being among the world’s most widely used stars, The Colony grossed just ￡47 during its opening weekend. Of course, the film was just screened in three cinemas following a synchronised video when needed release on Friday, however this begs the issue why the cringe factor wasn’t prevented by restricting it by-streaming.
The Colony sees Watson play a youthful lady who makes its way into the well known and unavoidable Colonia Dignidad sect in Chile inside a desperate bid to locate and save her kidnapped boyfriend (Daniel Bruhl).

The gripping drama first premiered in the 2015 Toronto Film Festival as Colonia, where it received largely negative reviews. The Hollywood Reporter ignored it as being “steeped in genre cliches from begin to finish” as the Protector top quality it an “implausible expose of Pinochet-era disasters by having an ending pinched from Ben Affleck’s Argo”. It made $15,709 upon its release in 27 US cinemas captured.
Watson isn’t the only big named actor to suffer a box office embarrassment carrying out a concurrent VOD release. Keanu Reeves’ new film Uncovered designed a mere ￡88 in March, while Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino’s latest thriller Misconduct grossed under ￡100 recently.
These figures claim that despite star casts, film fans are more and more selecting their sofa on the cinema seat once the choice is available. This can possibly result in a rise of pure video when needed releases, the viewing figures that are presently not available towards the public but likely tell a far more positive story.
Watson will quickly be viewed playing charge as Belle in Disney’s live action remake of Beauty and also the Animal, out next March. Knowing through the recent achievements from the Jungle Book, Maleficent and Cinderella, it will not be lengthy before she’s taking pleasure in another box office smash.
