In spite of its association with the beloved Disneyland attraction, the movie adaptation of Haunted Mansion is not achieving the desired results at the worldwide box office. The narrative centers around a young woman and her son who become trapped within a haunted mansion. They seek aid from a supposed “priest” and a team of individuals to break the curse binding them. Despite the film’s earnings reaching $85 million on a global scale, the bulk of the box office income originates from the United States and Canada. The forthcoming performance of the movie in international markets remains uncertain.

Several weeks after its initial release, Disney’s Haunted Mansion continues to struggle at the global box office. The comedy, directed by Justin Simien and inspired by the classic Disneyland attraction, has amassed $85 million globally. However, given its reported production cost of $150 million, the film could end up startling investors with its financial performance. While earlier endeavors to bring Disneyland attractions to life, like the successful Pirates of the Caribbean franchise or the more recent Jungle Cruise, proved prosperous, the same cannot be said for this spectral mansion.

The plot follows Gabbie (played by Rosario Dawson), a young woman endeavoring to raise her lone son after her family is deeply impacted by recent tragedies. Gabbie discovers a relatively inexpensive mansion in New Orleans, hoping it could provide a fresh beginning for both her and her son. Though Travis (portrayed by Chase W. Dillon) struggles to sleep in the clearly haunted dwelling, Gabbie clings to the possibility of a new start. Yet, as the mansion ensnares them with a curse, they are forced to seek assistance.

Gabbie’s initial recourse is to involve a priest, but the man she finds is not truly a priest. “Father” Kent (portrayed by Owen Wilson) attempts to fathom how to break the curse confining them but soon realizes his ineptitude. After contemplation, the group enlists the help of Ben Matthias (LaKeith Stanfield), Harriet (Tiffany Haddish), and Bruce (Danny DeVito) to unravel the mystery of dispelling the curse once and for all. However, the Hat Box Ghost (Jared Leto) is resolute in preventing their escape, as he edges closer to freedom from the mansion’s confines.

Performance of ‘Haunted Mansion’ Worldwide

Of the $85 million in total earnings, $59 million is attributed to box office receipts from the United States and Canada, while $26 million originates from international audiences. Notably, France and the United Kingdom have exhibited sustained interest with commendable weekend-to-weekend retention. Though the film has yet to premiere in Italy, Australia, and Japan, it appears unlikely that these additional markets will significantly alleviate the movie’s underwhelming performance. Nevertheless, only time will reveal the movie’s fate in these territories.
