Sometimes, too much of a good thing is a bad thing.
Such is the case for Gemini Man, director Ang Lee’s action thriller featuring not one but two Will Smiths, one an aging assassin named Henry Brogan, played by Smith in a live-action performance, and another nicknamed “Junior,” a young clone of Henry sent to kill him, which Smith portrayed through motion-capture.
With Academy Award winning director Lee at the helm, action movie icon Jerry Bruckheimer set as producer, Smith in the leading role, and David Benioff, one half of the Game of Thrones showrunning team, with a credit on the screenplay, Gemini Man seemed to have everything going for it, on paper, at least. But after literal decades of development, the movie sadly opened in theaters to a decidedly muted response.
In its opening weekend that officially began on Friday, October 11, Gemini Man earned a measly $20.5 million domestically. Internationally, the film pulled in $39 million, bringing its worldwide debut total to just $59.5 million, several million dollars under its reported production budget of $138 million.
To put things into perspective, $59.5 million is about what Fast & Furious spinoff Hobbs & Shaw yielded during its opening weekend in North America alone. It’s also a little more than what John Wick: Chapter 3 earned in its first few days out, also just domestically.
So, why did Gemini Man bomb at the box office? Let’s take a look.
