Argylle’s Second Weekend Box Office Drop Is Henry Cavill’s Worst Since 2016

Argylle is not doing well at the box office, as it suffers a massive weekend drop in the second week of its extremely disappointing run.

This article covers a developing story. Continue to check back with us as we will be adding more information as it becomes available.


  • Henry Cavill’s Argylle is a disappointing box office flop, with only $6.5 million opening against a rumored $200 million budget.
  • The star-studded spy movie, despite its cast, is projected to continue performing poorly with a 62% drop from last weekend.
  • Argylle’s lackluster performance poses a severe challenge for the movie’s franchise ambitions, as it falls far short of the required $300 million profitability mark.

Henry Cavill’s Argylle is quickly becoming the next great box office disappointment. The spy movie often verges into comedy and has a star-studded cast that includes Cavill, Bryce Dallas Howard, Bryan Cranston, Sam Rockwell, and Samuel L. Jackson. While that cast might ordinarily lead to massive box office returns, the movie opened to a mere $6.5 million against a budget that had been rumored to be $200 million, though it is likely much lower.

According to a report by Deadline, Argylle‘s poor returns are likely to continue. With a $6.6 million projected take for the weekend, the movie has suffered a massive 62 percent drop from last weekend. It’s Cavill’s biggest second-week drop since 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which suffered an 81 percent drop, according to Box Office Mojo. Argylle likely requires $300 million to reach profitability, and it is currently sitting at under $30 million two weeks into its run.
