Below is a wrap-up of the predictions I made several months ago, an exploration of what succeeded and what failed, and how I observe things to have gone.
January 22, 2021
Oscar Prospects: What I said: “None.”
Oscar Results: Still None.
Box Office Prospects: $20 M
Box Office Expectations: What I Said: “Uncertain. The pandemic still controls the box office and the subject matter might not be enough to pull hardcore Liam Neeson fans to the theater.”
Box Office Results: $15.6 M
Thoughts: [Unexceptional] The pandemic was still at its height during the ill-advised release of this film and even compared to other pandemic-era releases, this is rather unexciting, though right on target for expectations.
