It should be noted that the context is not the same, in a post-health crisis era where all films perform less well.
Besides, LDumbledore’s Secrets is not doing so badly in France, given the flop he has made across the Atlantic. Despite its beautiful cast (Jude Law is Dumbledore and Mads Mikkelsen replaces Johnny Depp in the role of Grindelwald), the film is far from meeting the same success on the other side of the Atlantic. To this date, Fantastic Beasts 3 has already ceded first place in the US box office, in favor of the animated film The Bad Guysfinding himself in third place, behind sonic 2. With less than $80 million accumulated in total (79.55 million after the third weekend), the film of David Yates becomes the least profitable of the franchise: the first part had brought in $160 million and the second $230 million at the end of their operations.
