Turnout for the release of The Flash was a little sluggish at the domestic box office over the weekend. The film fell short of its $70-75 million projections with just $55.1 million instead. Deadline chalks up the lackluster debut to the controversy surrounding Ezra Miller—and the lack of press as a result. Meanwhile, the Disney and Pixar film Elemental took second place, debuting to $29.5 million.
