It's very unfortunate that a film is branded after one weekend, or a day, a flop, based on its receipts

I guess it's also due to the fact that figures are shared with moviegoers on the news and entertainment programs on tv and via the internet, when in the past mainly trade papers like "Variety" used to carry this information for the most part. Movies sometimes do have "legs" and word of mouth sometimes makes something into a hit. Reports of poor grosses usually has theater owners, in normal times, remove a movie from their theaters quite soon, and then it's hard to see the film you might have intended to see, even if you didn't want to go the first week. Plus nowadays with the pandemic and streaming, news of "hit" or "flop" status travels even faster.
