What We Learned From Ant-Man and the Wasp

Sam Rockwell Justin Hammer

That start is significantly ahead of the original Ant-Man, which debuted with US$57 million in 2015. Sorry to Bother You also opened this weekend and earned over $717 thousand, giving it the 16th spot.

Ant-Man and the Wasp squashed the competition at the North American box office.

There's little doubt that Avengers: Infinity War was the most colossally expansive, universe-changing entry in the MCU thus far, so when the studio's next release is a film called Ant-Man and the Wasp, the jokes kind of write themselves. In the U.S., the movie pulled in $76 million, making it the 20th consecutive Marvel film to open #1 at the box office. The acclaimed first film came in slightly lower with an 82 percent Rotten Tomatoes average. Disney-Pixar's "Incredibles 2" picked up another $35.7 million overseas and $29 million domestically for a global weekend total of $64.7 million.

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. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom took 3rd place with $28.5 million, bringing its worldwide take to just over a billion dollars.

Universal and Amblin Entertainment's "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" scored $27.6 million from 86 global territories. Warner Bros.' Tag took 8th place this week with $3.1 million, while the Mister Rogers documentary Won't You be my Neighbor brought in an impressive $2.5 million, which is almost 7 percent higher than last weekend. The Purge movies have pocketed over US$360 million globally.

It also speaks to audiences. The franchise has yet to open in Europe due to a desire not to compete with the World Cup, and when coupled with Asian markets, it is likely the less expensive superhero romp will still be able to round up a decent worldwide number.

New offering "The First Purge" launched overseas with $10.9 million in 26 markets, including $2.2 million in the United Kingdom and Ireland, $2.1 million in France, $1.5 million in Germany, and $1.1 million in Spain. Other openings include an estimated $2.1 million in France, $1.48 million in Germany and $1.14 million in Spain.

The sequel had the biggest debut in Korea with $20.9 million, followed by Mexico with $6.7 million, and Indonesia with $5.6 million.
