Alice was originally tracking to debut at around $70 million for its opening weekend but is now estimated to make closer to $40 million, just one-third of what the original film, Alice in Wonderland, raked in during its opening weekend in 2010.

The film didn’t fare much better internationally, taking in just $65 million in offshore markets, according to Deadline.

NEWS: Stars React to Amber Heard’s Domestic Abuse Allegations Against Johnny Depp

Industry analysts don’t believe that abuse allegations from Depp’s estranged wife Amber Heard, earlier in the week were to blame for the flop, as the film was already hindered by bad reviews and early tracking predicting a weak launch.

The movie news is just one more piece of bad news for Depp who has had a stormy couple of weeks. Heard filed for divorce just three days after his mother, Betty Sue Palmer, died from a long illness. The 30-year-old actress then accused Depp, 52, of domestic abuse. Heard has since been granted a temporary restraining order against the Pirates of the Caribbean star.

Ahead of the film’s release, some outraged fans launched a Twitter boycott against the actor using the hashtags #ImWithAmber and #WeStandWithAmber .

Some celebrities have weighed in on the accusations as well. While a few have expressed their disdain for the situation, others - including Depp's 17-year-old daughter, Lily-Rose - have come to his defense, with The Walking Dead star Laurie Holden noting that she still planned on seeing Alice.
