Woke Side Story Tanks Worldwide
Director Steven Spielberg’s woke West Side Story remake flopped all over the planet.
After its global debut, West Side Story: The Corrected Version sits at a worldwide take of just $15 million as of Monday.
If you think that sounds bad, wait till you get a load of this…
That $15 million includes the $10.5 million West Side Story: The Woketard Version made here in the U.S.
In other words, in the five other countries it opened in (Russia, Netherlands, the UK, France, and Germany), West Side Story: The Fascist Version grossed just, lol, $3.5 million.

Gee, I wonder if German subtitles were added in Germany, or French subtitles were added in France, or if only American audiences were told their language is so incorrect there would be no English subtitles for the Spanish-speaking scenes?
Naturally, the kiss-ass entertainment media is spin-spin-spinning:
So what happened? Anthony has the domestic rundown here — and offshore is a somewhat similar situation. There are increased Covid fears in Europe and older audiences are not rushing out to see a film they know they can catch during the down time after holiday preparations are through. In terms of individual markets, the UK leads at $1.7M (No. 2 opening), followed by France with $1.1M (the soft market is led by a local fourquel which saw a bigger drop from Wednesday-Thursday than WSS). After that, we cast downwards to Germany’s $300K start and Russia and Netherlands’ $200K debuts. Russia and Germany were expected to be soft, and Netherlands has a 5PM curfew in place.
Oh, yes, the virus. That must be it…
