A gargantuan fantasy failure goes to war on a pair of streaming platforms

Having decreed that Disney shouldn’t be allowed to corner the market when it comes to live-action fairytales, Universal decided to get in the game by splashing out on Snow White and the Hunstman, which turned out to be a mildly successful endeavor after the fantasy epic earned close to $400 million at the box office. A sequel was given the okay, but it would be an understatement to say Winter’s War did not hit the heights of its predecessor.

Adding yet another black mark to Chris Hemsworth’s track record of box office failures outside the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the $110 million swords-and-sorcery tale could only muster $165 million at the box office, yielding a huge loss for the studio once marketing and distribution costs were factored in.
