Referring to Ambulance, the good news is that it’s double the number of previews of Universal’s previous action 355, which made $ 350,000 at 2,300 theaters starting Thursday at 7 p.m. The irony here with Ambulance is that it is the best reviewed film of the career of director Michael Bay – related to Stone, which was also 68% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes – but the film won’t reach double digits in the opening.

The logical question is why this was not sent to Peacock, day in and day out. I understand that Universal wanted to be in the Bay business and made a negative raise here from Endeavor Content, which funded the image with Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Eiza González for an estimated $ 40 million. The only right of praise for Universal is that Ambulance it was cheap. Following the disastrous result of the $ 20 million film at the foreign box office in 59 territories, Uni is already facing the reality that this vehicle is broken.
