Jared Leto’s Morbius bombed the box office again after Sony re-released it to take advantage of a viral meme.

Jared Leto’s Morbius meme didn’t attract netizens effectively. According to box office figures, viewers did not want to see a rerun.

Sony recently re-released a comic book movie to theater screens this weekend. The film previously earned a ghastly total box office of $73 million after its domestic spring release.

Here’s everything you need to know.

Jared Leto mocks Morbius

Jared Leto recently posted a video of himself on Twitter. The actor appears to be reading the script to hide from the cameraman.

However, it later turned out to be a script titled ‘Morbius 2: It’s Morbin’ Time’ with a Curb Your Enthusiasm theme.

The Morbius meme went viral on the internet after its disastrous release. Nevertheless, Leto joined the bandwagon for the Morbius sequel, captioning the clip ‘What time is it?’

Actors and studios may have decided to bring Morbius back to theaters after the viral meme.

However, the film again failed at the box office.

According to a Forbes report, the re-released Morbius made just $85,000 on Friday. The film’s total weekend gross income is unclear.

Jared Leto’s Morbius Fail Again

Jared Leto, starring Morbius, premiered in theaters in April 2022. The film grossed $73 million domestically and $163 million worldwide.

Nonetheless, the film was a disappointment to critics and box office alike.

Despite the negative reaction, the film was a hot topic on the meme page. In particular, the phrase ‘It’s Morbin time’ was popular on social media platforms.

Thousands of memes and jokes flooded the For You pages of Instagram and other sites. Most of the memes were puns related to the character’s unusual name.

However, some netizens sarcastically praised the film, and some netizens urged the production company to produce a sequel. The meme spread all over the internet, causing Morbius 2 to go viral online.

“It’s one of the funniest things that has happened to the entertainment world in years,” said one netizen, “Mobius returning to the theater and detonating a bomb.”

Another said, ‘The real challenge is to trick them into releasing Morbius a third time if they have the will to do it’.
