Narnia-3: Dawn Treader Hits The Box-Office

According to the Box Office Report this week, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader debuted with $24.5 million from American theatres, says, although the industry forecasts thought it would open to about $30-40 million. The movie’s opening is a major drop from the first two Narnian films, the first of which opened with $66 million and the second with $55 million. However, Dawn Threader is said to perform better overseas as it has earned $81 million in 85 wrld countries. For now, it has brought in $105.5 million worldwide, which is less than the film’s budget of $155 million, however there is still time for people to watch it in the theatres and bring in the money to Fox and Walden Media.
The fans’ opinions vary dramatically from those claiming that the movie was awesome and that they enjoyed both the actors’ performance (which is no suprise as the movie start Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, Ben Barnes, Will Poulter and Liam Neeson), the effects (again, no surprise - taking into account the huge budget) and the plot, to those who regret watching it and say it is so much worse than The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and Prince Caspian, to say nothing of the original Clive S. Lewis’ book. Well, what can we say? Whereas many people are able to find the screen version as much the Christian parable as the Lewis’ book is, still the movie seems to rely more on visual effects rather than the charm of the original novel and the ideas behind the plot. Because Edmund and Lucy are now too old to come back to Narnia, and because of the drop in the box office opening, it s quite possible that the third Narnian movie will also be the last one.
So as it happens, there is no sole opinion on the matter, and you are most welcome to uter yours below in the comment field.
