20th Century Studios is expected to have another box-office flop on its hands this weekend with Harrison Ford’s “The Call of the Wild.”

The studio formerly known as Fox has released a string of misfires since Disney closed its acquisition of it last year. Notably, Disney blamed a $170 million quarterly operating lossin the third quarter of 2019 primarily on the X-Men bomb “Dark Phoenix,” which made just $253 million worldwide off of a $200 million production budget.

“The Call of the Wild,” based on the classic novel of the same name, had a hefty budget between $125 million and $150 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Based on weekend projections, it could be difficult for the movie to make a profit.

Both Boxoffice.comand Box Office Mojoare expecting “The Call of the Wild” to finish behind another family-friendly movie, “Sonic the Hedgehog,” in the US this weekend. Boxoffice.com is projecting “The Call of the Wild” to make $13 million over the weekend, and Box Office Mojo is expecting a $17.5 million domestic opening.

“Ford’s films outside his most iconic roles have had a tendency to under-perform since the turn of the century,” the Boxoffice.com chief analyst Shawn Robbins wrote.

Other Fox box-office disappointments since the merger include “The Art of Racing in the Rain,” the buddy comedy “Stuber,” and Brad Pitt’s sci-fi drama “Ad Astra.”
