Either way, it was a mistake for Sony Pictures to choose this particular release date for The Lost Village when we still have Twentieth Century Fox's The Boss Baby continuing its reign while Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast is still going strong weeks after its initial release. This weekend's openings included a $2.2 million debut in Brazil along with France ($1.9m); Mexico ($1.6m); Germany ($1.5m); and Italy ($1m) Upcoming releases include an April 21 debut in China and an April 28 release in South Korea. Forecasts ranged from $14.5 million at BoxOfficePro to $19.1 million at Hollywood Stock Exchange. Lost Village, costing a reported $60 million to make, will have to do huge business overseas if Sony gets its wish. The film features Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin in a tale about three lifelong pals who decide to knock over a bank after their pensions are canceled.
