How is this movie a financial success? It’s way underwater. Plus, it wasn’t even a good movie. No one wants a sequel.

Agree 100%. Horrible movie simply due to the unnecessary insertion of the brother’s backstory and the gender-swapped Trader Sam. Good grief.

What’s the problem with the brother’s backstory? Just say you don’t like gay people.

It was completely unnecessary and shoe-horned in the movie. It added nothing to the story other than to show that Disney is woke. Just say you don’t like straight people.

This movie cost $200 million to make, plus another $170 million to advertise. It gross 187 million in box office. It needs to gross $500 million to break even. In short, Disney lost a ton of money on it. But, being that thy are making a sequel, I guess they didn’t lose enough.

You didn’t mention what it grossed in Disney+ Premier Access sales.

Honestly, it was not that bad but the brother character was super annoying to me and the Rock plays the same person in almost every movie.
