The Biebs' Documentary Flops at the Box Office

The Biebs' Documentary Flops at the Box Office
Posted December 30th, 2013 @ 1:01pm

Justin Bieber's Christmas Eve Twitter prank alleging to his 'retirement' (yeah, that's not happening) might have to become a reality sooner than we thought. 

His concert documentary 'Believe' earned only $3.1 million during it's first 3 days in the United States. To put it in perspective...the debut of his first concert movie 'Never Say Never' in 2011 grossed almost TEN TIMES that amount, opening at $29 million and taking $70 million in total.

And in case you need more to compare this to:

  • In August of 2013, One Direction's 'This Is Us' doc debuted to $15.8 million, earning $28.9 million
  • 'Miley Cyrus: Best of Both World Concert Tour' in 2008 opened with $31.1 million
  • The Jo Bro's documentary from 2009 earned nearly $13 million, despite only being shown in select theaters
