Deadline reports that West Side Story, Steven Spielberg‘s first feature musical, didn’t live up to its expectations. Since the premiere Friday (December 10th), the film has earned a mere $10.5 million. With more than $100 million in production costs (before P&A), critics question the film’s release date and whether the film can make it up in the long run.
Box Office Numbers from Friday, December 10th through Sunday, December 12th:
1. West Side Story, $10.5 million
