If at first you don’t succeed you possibly can attempt once more, and once more, and once more, and finally you would possibly discover an viewers. At the very least that’s what seems to have occurred for Morbius. The abysmal vampire superhero movie starring Jared Leto is lastly primary someplace.
In a press launch issued by Fandango, which acquired Vudu in 2020, the corporate says that Morbius was the primary title when it comes to income on Vudu for the week of June thirteenth, 2022. Notably, that’s income, not precise streams. Vudu fees for leases and purchases and Morbius is presently accessible to lease for $5.99 or buy for $19.99.
Whereas Morbius was primary on the field workplace its first weekend, its second week noticed a drop off of 74-percent. That’s the worst second week for any large price range superhero movie.
