When Ant-Man and the wasp floated like a butterfly in the cinemas, she stabbed like a bee at the cash register.
The Ant-Man sequel, led by Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, opened for pre-official release previews on Thursday, July 5, when it took home an estimated $ 11 million in domestic sales. Sources nearing the deadline offered their predictions for the film's thursday night draw and reported on its revenue for the aforementioned brand.
As the outlets show, Ant-Man and the Wasp is already performing better than its predecessor, which took $ 6.4 million on Thursday, June 28, 2015 when it was released for previews. The original Ant-Man rose to $ 22.6 million on Friday and an opening weekend of $ 57.2 million.
An 11-million-dollar night on Thursday places "Ant-Man and the Wasp" in the same area as the movie "Guardians of the Galaxy." When Chris Pratt's star lord, Zoe Saldanas Gamora, and the rest of the all-saving A-hole first appeared on screen in 2014, moviegoers gave on Thursday, July 31, before the official launch of the picture $ 11.2 million for their stupid jokes on Friday, August 1.
With Ant-Man and the Wasp staying on track, Friday's film should make between $ 30 million and $ 35 million for a $ 80 million to $ 85 million debut weekend. By comparison, the first Ant Man strip struck nearly $ 33 million on Thursday night.
Insiders estimate that Ant-Man and the Wasp took home almost $ 85 million over the weekend, about as much as Doctor Strange did during their first three days in 2016. But the sequel to Ant-Man has Doctor Strange already hit Thursday Previews (the Benedict Cumberbatch starrer recorded $ 9.4 million on his preview night), so we would not be surprised if the movie earned more than $ 85 million on Sunday night.
Ant-Man and the Wasp can end their debut weekend with more or less money than expected, but the fact that it is already buzzing at the box office is a fantastic sign. The second Ant Man movie came on the heels of Avengers: Infinity War, was a bit penalized, and many wondered how it could follow the massive, anyone-could-talk-for-months movie some even turned down in question, if it would even arrive well.
Thursday night's $ 11 million profit seems to prove it's as good as the audience's first reactions, it's definitely the "fresh air," Marvel president Kevin Feige said, and the big things are doing it really come in small packages. (Come on, you did not think we'd talk about Ant-Man and the Wasp without making such a pun, would you?)
Ant-Man and the wasp are out now – and we have the biggest questions we have after we've seen them.
