The release of The Pale Blue Eye arrives just weeks after Christian’s previous film Amsterdam bombed at the box office.

David O. Russell’s star-studded film featuring Margot Robbie and Rami Malek grossed just $28 million at the worldwide box office off of a budget of $80 million.

Despite the major star power, audiences failed to come out in droves opening week, with a paltry per-screen average in the United States of $2,163, for one of the worst debuts of Russell’s directorial career.

Amsterdam was beaten at the box office by Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, a musical based on Bernard Waber’s children’s book featuring Shawn Mendes as the voice of a computer-generated reptile.

Following Amsterdam’s poor box office performance the film was moved from theatres to streaming, leading to competition with The Pale Blue Eye.
