“Bad Times at the El Royale” opened during a packed box office schedule, going against previous hits like “Venom” and “A Star is Born,” while also competing against “Goosebumps 2” and “Night School”. October’s other big releases like “Halloween,” “Smallfoot,” “Hunter Killer,” and “Mid90s” prevented “Bad Times at the El Royale” from gaining any real traction during its limited release. The Digital release should be successful for the studio, as viewers catch up on the films they missed over the holidays. You can add “Bad Times at the El Royale” to your watch-list during the holidays, while we are all trapped in our icy houses for the next few months.
