As we all know, the pandemic hit Hollywood hard, making it difficult for filmmakers to create and distribute movies. As things started to open back up, Hollywood began to return to normalcy, but the film industry still took a big hit. People were/are content with watching movies from home and have not completely returned to theaters, which could be a reason for the move to streaming services. “Respect” opened up at No. 4 at the box office two weeks ago, racking in about $8.8 million its debut,  however, it slid down to No. 5 last weekend making only $3.7 million. As of now, the movie has made a grand total of $17.4 million with a reported budget of $55 million.
