In somewhat surprising and non surprising news, this pandemic is still going on strong. People are still testing positive after having the vaccine, so we are no where close to being over with Covid or Delta. So Universal may have seen the struggles of Candyman earlier.
I know Candyman is considered profitable from its budget standpoint but with it being an IP so famous like Candyman to only make $22 million is still a flop in my eyes. Universal may also be testing the waters in this strategy once again after their family friendly Baby Boss sequel.
It may also be in response with October being stacked with Venom October 1st, No Time To Die October 8th, then the highly anticipated adaptation of Dune October 22nd. I don’t backlash Universal for this decision at all.
So what do you think of Universal also putting this on Peacock?
