'Ant-Man and the Wasp' marches to $76-million launch

Mandarin

Superheroes continue to dominate the summer box office.

Looking ahead, should Ant-Man deliver on the average 2.75x multiplier for a film in the MCU we're looking at a domestic performance around $209 million or so while a performance on the lower end would be closer to $180 million.

Overall, expectations are high for Ant-Man And The Wasp, which is amazingly the third Marvel Studios release in 2018 (though it is also the last).

Internationally, after crossing $1 billion at the global box office on Friday, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom added an additional $27.6 million overseas this weekend, bringing the film's worldwide total to $725.3 million for a global cume totaling $1.058 billion. With July 4th falling on a Wednesday and thus depriving Hollywood of a holiday weekend, Universal opted to release "The First Purge" on Wednesday, while "Ant-Man" waited for the customary Thursday night previews. Its five-day total sits at $31 million.

"The new chapter really taps into the zeitgeist".

While Kompany headed a corner kick on, it deflected into Brazil's net off Fernandinho's shoulder for an own-goal. Lukaku looked invincible as he powered through Brazil's midfield before finding De Bruyne in space on the right.

Instead, Reed said these films have "very different storytelling ambitions", and in fact his hope is that they have "the most personal tone" of the Marvel films.

And while we're appreciating the fact that they've basically created a franchise around how amusing and cute and non-threatening Paul Rudd is, let's go back and watch the greatest piece of movie promo that's ever been invented.

The fourth movie in the series serves as an origin story, starring Y'lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, Joivan Wade, Luna Lauren Velez, and Marisa Tomei. One, because we want to see it, and see, like, does it earn its place in the movie? In three weeks, the dinosaur tentpole has earned US$333.3 million in North America.

Now in its fourth frame, Disney-Pixar's "Incredibles 2" just hit a major milestone of its own. Everyone's favourite crime-fighting family has crossed the US$500 million mark domestically and US$700 million worldwide. It's the first animated film to ever surpass $500 million at the North American box office, and the 12th film ever to do so.

Rounding out the top five were Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, The First Purge, and Sicario: Day of the Soldado, which earned $28.5 million, $17.1 million, and $7.3 million, respectively. The action thriller has Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin teaming up to fight drug cartels smuggling "terrorists" across the Mexican border. Another debut for the weekend is Roadside Attractions and Miramax's Whitney, which brought in $1.3 million from 452 locations for the 11th spot on the list. Lakeith Stanfield, Armie Hammer, Tessa Thompson, Steven Yeun, Danny Glover, Terry Crews, David Cross, Patton Oswalt, and Omari Hardwick round out the cast. It earned $29 million in its fourth weekend, bringing its domestic total to $504 million and its worldwide haul to $773 million. In five weeks, the documentary on Fred Rogers has amassed an impressive $12.4 million. The 2018 box office as a whole, which just hit $6.5 billion, is up 9 percent from past year, according to ComScore.
