KATY PERRY PART OF ME Movie Box Office Weak

Katy Perry Part of Me movie 3D box office. The Paramount Insurge Katy Perry concert documentary Katy Perry: Part of Me opened on Thursday with a modest $3.1 million at the North American box office. That's at the lower end of expectations: Paramount Insurge had been expecting an opening in the $3m-$4 million range.

The $12m-budgeted Part of Me movie may match (though it'll certainly not recover*) its production costs at the North American box office by Sunday evening. The Katy Perry documentary is expected to collect between $2.5m-$3.5 million at 2,730 locations on Friday and finish its four-day run somewhere in the low to mid-teens as per very early, very rough estimates found in The Hollywood Reporter.

Katy Perry Part of Me movie vs. Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus concert movies

For comparison's sake: Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, another Paramount Insurge release, opened with $29.51 million at 3,105 sites in Feb. 2011, while the Disney release Hannah Montana / Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour raked in $31.11 million at only 683 locations in Feb. 2008. It should be noted that neither concert movie caused much of a stir overseas: $25.42 million international vs. $73.01 million domestic for the Justin Bieber documentary, and $5.36 million vs. $65.28 million for the Miley Cyrus doc. In other words, Katy Perry: Part of Me — especially considering all the (quite literally) flag waving — doesn't have much of a chance of striking it rich abroad.

Katy Perry Part of Me movie reviews

Katy Perry: Part of Me has a solid 78 percent approval rating — but only a mid-level 6.6/10 average rating — among Rotten Tomatoes' top critics. Also worth noting, the concert documentary reportedly received an "A" CinemaScore. Whether that'll translate into longer legs at the domestic box office remains to be seen. At this stage, it doesn't seem all that likely, considering the film's weak start.

Directed by Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz, Katy Perry: Part of Me also features Shannon Woodward, Rachael Markarian, Mia Moretti, and Glen Ballard.

* As a rule, studios pocket about 50 percent of their films' domestic box office gross; 40 percent of the international take. And remember, Katy Perry: Part of Me's $12 million budget doesn't include marketing / distribution expenses.
