Dakota Johnson recently escaped to the sunny shores of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, accompanied by her partner, Chris Martin.

Despite facing a challenging opening weekend for her film “Madame Web”, which received scathing reviews from critics and is now Sony’s lowest-grossing Spider-Man movie ever, Dakota seemed undeterred. Clad in a high-cut white swimsuit, she frolicked in the ocean, seemingly untroubled by the film’s performance.

Chris Martin, who was previously married to Gwyneth Paltrow, joined her as they waded into the water together to cool off. The couple splashed around before returning to the shore, where Chris knelt on the sand, offering a prayer of gratitude.

During their laid-back beach getaway, Chris Martin showcased his fit physique in light grey and orange shorts. The couple was spotted drying off near an oceanfront cabana, wrapping themselves in beach towels as they soaked up the sun. Dakota Johnson, her long brown hair pulled into a tight bun, seemed unfazed by the disappointing performance of her film “Madame Web.”

Despite high hopes, “Madame Web”, starring Dakota Johnson, faced a disappointing box office debut. The film managed to gross only $26.2 million during its first six days, from Valentine’s Day through President’s Day. Unfortunately, this lackluster performance places it among the lowest opening totals for any movie based on a Marvel Comics character.

Initially, the studio had ambitious plans for a new franchise centered around Johnson’s title character, along with three other female roles portrayed by Sydney Sweeney, Isabela Merced, and Celeste O’Connor. However, insiders now reveal that due to the film’s abysmal box office receipts, we may have to wait another decade before seeing another Madame Web movie.

According to an insider who spoke to The Hollywood Reporter, ‘We’re not going to see another Madame Web movie for another decade-plus. It failed. Sony tried to make a movie that was a different type of superhero movie.’

While some superhero films, like Morbius, managed to perform well internationally despite mixed reviews, Madame Web seems unlikely to follow suit. Its global debut brought in a meager $51.9 million, with only $25.7 million coming from foreign markets. Considering the reported budget (which some sources claim exceeds $100 million), the financial outlook remains grim.

The movie has yet to premiere in China, a crucial market, with its release scheduled for March 1. However, even this significant market may struggle to offset the film’s disappointing performance.

Critics were equally unimpressed, giving it a mere 13% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes—one of the lowest scores ever for a superhero film. These scathing reviews even led to multiple cancellations of advance ticket sales.
