Netflix suffers one of its biggest failures with a movie that cost $100 million turning the public away

Audience data you provide netflix They are far from ideal, but at least they serve to give us an idea of ​​what is a success, worked more or less well, and what is a failure. With ‘Background Noise’ there’s now no doubt what it’s about One of the biggest disasters in the history of the stage.

an unmitigated disaster

With an estimated cost of $100 million – although there were rumors at the time that the budget had reached $140 million – ‘Background Noise’ is an adaptation of the novel don de lillo that my colleague George Loser defined as “A very expensive joke at the expense of a naive Netflix with a wallet ready for a hit with a desire to fish for ignorant intellectuals“. And it seems the public wasn’t always interested in being told about that joke.

‘Background Noise’ tells the story of how the lives of a university professor and his family are changed when a chemical leak releases a toxic cloud. Admittedly, the film is a mix of genres and ideas that crashed to such an extent that it has barely run 29.09 million hours in ten days. Some ridiculous figures for a film that costs so much.

to put it in perspective, ‘Gora’ was a clear failure, but it cost much less than 100 million and only in its first five days did it improve on that data with 37.34 million hours. I have no doubt that ‘Background Noise’ will be remembered as one of the biggest flops this platform has ever produced. And look he has some big ones.

It hasn’t helped that I’m behind her Noah BaumbachOne of the best original movies on Netflix, ‘History of a Marriage’ also has the director, or rather, its cast featuring faces who are known to be Adam Driver, Greta Gerwig or Don Cheadle,
