Quantumania sees strong open despite poor ratings
Negative reviews can’t let this Marvel movie down.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania may have received an abundance of mixed reviews, but that hasn’t stopped the film from achieving solid success at the weekend box office.
The third Ant-Man film is expected to gross over $104 million domestically for the three-day weekend and over $118 million domestically for the entire four-day President’s Day weekend. It’s also worth noting that the worldwide opening weekend for the film is estimated at $240 million.
While opening weekend box office here may not be as significant as other recent MCU films — especially when compared to Black Panther 2, which grossed $181 million domestically in its first weekend, and Doctor Strange 2, which grossed $181 million when it premiered in the Domestically grossed $187 million, this is the best-ever opening of the Ant-Man franchise. The first Ant-Man film started at around $57 million domestically, while Ant-Man and the Wasp started with a domestic price of $75 million.
Having the franchise’s best opening weekend, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is impressive, with the MCU’s official introduction of Kang in the film likely being a major factor in its appeal. Likewise, the ending of the first Ant Man trilogy was a decent draw for fans of the hero and his storyline.
Unfortunately, there’s a good chance that interest in watching the film will wane significantly over time, given the mostly mixed to negative reviews across the board. This is on top of the widespread problems said to plague the MCU, including fatigue from the length of the franchise’s sustained releases.
Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is currently only available in theaters, although unfortunately it is unknown how long it will be before Disney plans to put it on its Disney+ streaming service. For more information about the film, see the related articles below.
