Cats had a dismal opening with $6 million in its first weekend. The movie was panned when the first trailer was released. It seems that negativity never stopped following that movie. It is easily the biggest flog of 2019. The movie’s budget was sitting at $95 million, which was before the studio behind the movie announced that update the visuals while the movie was in theaters. It seems like Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker really didn’t have any competition this weekend. Jumanji: The Next Level only grossed $26 million this weekend, the movies gross dropped over half from last weekend.
