It turns out pop sensation Justin Bieber’s new film Believe wasn’t a hit with cinema goers. In money terms, the film earned a mere tenth of what his first film Never Say Never made in 2011.
Justin’s first flick grossed $73 million in North America, compared with his latest one, which cost $5 million to make and is expected to gross just $4.5 million in its first five days.
The disappointing figures come straight after the controversial heartthrob announced his retirement on Twitter.
Unfortunately for the Baby singer, the concert film didn’t even make it into the top 10 – apparently all the Beliebers in the world couldn’t move it from its poor 14th position.
However, we shouldn’t worry too much; in the five years since Justin was discovered on YouTube, he has enjoyed a mountain of success. The singer was the first artist to have seven songs from a debut record chart on the Billboard Hot 100 and he received the Artist of the Year Award at the 2010 and 2012 American Music Awards.
If he is able to retire at 19, we’re sure the movie’s flop will have as little impact on him as its release had on the world.
