It appears not many people want to see an elephant fly.
Despite taking first place at the box office, Dumbo earned a soft $45 million here in the United States.
To put that number in perspective, the Tim Burton-directed film has a $170 million
It’s also less than half of what “Beauty and the Beast,” ″The Jungle Book” and Burton’s own “Alice in Wonderland” opened to.
Internationally, “Dumbo” grossed $71 million, with $10.7 million coming from China, $7.4 million from the U.K. and $7.2 million from Mexico.
