Things haven’t been too hot for Tetsuwan Atom and his Imagi Studios theatrical effort, Astro Boy. David Bowers’ film, which was produced with a budget of $65 million, pulled in $1.7 million during its fourth weekend, bringing it down to #13 on the box office charts according to Box Office Mojo.
This additional income, spread across 1,354 theaters, brings the film’s grand domestic total to $17,913,000. This beats out Ponyo’s domestic earnings, but doesn’t bode terribly well for Imagi’s take on Osamu Tezuka’s squat hero.
