Justin Bieber Bombs at the Box Office


Justin Bieber fans stay away from his latest concert doc 'Believe.'
Justin Bieber‘s second concert doc, Believe, chronicles a new era for the pop star, where media criticism threatens to drown out fan support. Unfortunately, Believe‘s first-week box office sales will do little to change that narrative.
Believe earned just $3.1 million in its first three days, or a fraction of what Never Say Never earned in 2011 to become the best-selling concert doc of all time, domestically. (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will earn up to $32 million this weekend.) Open Road Films, which is releasing the film in North America, cites a few reasons for the slump, including fewer screens (1,037, compared to Never Say Never‘s 3,100) and a smaller marketing budget.
“It’s a new model. we wanted to go straight to Justin’s fans,” said Jason Cassidy, marketing chief. “Financially, we’re going to be fine.” This point is a crucial one, although for reasons that Open Door — and Bieber, for that matter — may not like.

He needs to follow through with that retirement he's been babbling about. His 15 min is up!

But this was why he announced his retirement-it was supposed to make his fans rush the box office. Sorry, Justin, I think One Direction has scooped up your fans.
