This past weekend has been very important for Digimon fans in Spain. And it is that has been released in our cinemas “Digimon Adventure 02: The Beginning“, the new film in the long-running and popular franchise starring the characters from the second season of the classic anime.
Unfortunately, Its premiere has not worked at all well in our country. And it is that “Digimon Adventure 02: The Beginning“has not managed to stand out at the Spanish box office in its opening weekend, according to collects Comscore. I will tell you in more detail and give you the possible reasons for this failure next.
Digimon Adventure 02: The Beginning does not stand out at the Spanish box office
This is all the information about it:
- According to data presented by Comscore, the film has not managed to enter the Top 10 at the box office neither him Friday December 1 (on the day of its release) nor the saturday 2. Specific data for Sunday is still missing, but it looks bad. 😭
- This is something that did not happen with the previous film, since “Last Evolution Kizuna” did manage to make noise at its premiere in our country. ✅
- This has happened despite the fact that “The Beginning” had the issue of the number of theaters in its favor: has been released in 117and the previous feature film remained about 100. ❗️
- Therefore, we can objectively state that “Digimon Adventure 02: The Beginning” has not been as interesting in Spain as the previous IP film. 💔
- Although we do not know the expectations he had Select Vision (your distributor), with all the pain in my heart I think that We can call these numbers a failure. 😭
Why hasn’t Digimon Adventure 02: The Beginning achieved better numbers in Spain?
Personally, I think it is difficult to establish the reasons, especially considering that I am not an expert on these issues. However, I do believe there are two main reasons for these poor numbers.
- The nostalgia factor has not hit as hard as he did in “Last Evolution Kizuna”. The return of the original Chosen Children after so many years attracted much more attention than the return of the protagonists of the second season just a few years after appearing in the aforementioned film. ❌
- This new movie is not as good as the last one. Although it is a very subjective opinion, I think that “Last Evolution Kizuna” was an outstanding work, while I would say that “The Beginnig” is simply an okay film that I would give a 6 grade to. 📉
- The number of premiere theaters has nothing to do with it. And, as I have already mentioned before, this new film has reached more theaters than the previous one. 🎞
And here comes the information about the performance of “Digimon Adventure 02: The Beginning” in its opening weekend in theaters in Spain.
Personally, as a lifelong Digimon fan, I am sorry that the film has not managed to stand out more. What do you think? Do you agree with my opinions? I invite you to leave me your impressions in the comments. I read you!
