The Marvel sequel - starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly - opened with US$76 million (RM307 milion) from 4,206 North American locations. Incredibles 2 made $29 million at the United States box office this weekend, bring its domestic box office total to $504 million.
"Ant-Man and the Wasp" easily topped the weekend, as fellow box office newcomer "The First Purge" scared up $17 million from 3,031 theaters. Ant-Man and the Wasp is the first Marvel project featuring a female superhero's name in the title and female superhero in a lead role. That could make it hard to surpass the $180 million domestic run of the original Ant-Man, which had some impressive legs, but only time will tell. The film is on track to earn over $82 million, which as Deadline reports, is over 40% more than the original earned its opening weekend.
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. Future openings include a July 18 release in France followed by Germany (7/26), United Kingdom (8/2), Italy (8/14) and Japan (8/31). So far, Incredibles 2 has made $773 million at the worldwide box office. The dinosaur blockbuster, which just crossed the $1 billion mark at the global box office, has earned $725 million from overseas alone. Unfortunately, the film also saw a steep 30 percent decline from Friday to Saturday, explaining the lowered opening weekend estimate.
Overseas, "Ant-Man and the Wasp" collected $85 million, bringing the worldwide opening to $161 million.
Coming in third is Universal and Amblin's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which brought in an estimated $28.5 million for the three-day weekend and has now pushed its domestic cume to $333.3 million as it begins its third week in release. The studio has had a string of box office hits in 2018 with Avengers: Infinity War racking up over US$2 billion and counting, and Black Panther passing US$1.3 billion globally. That means the movie might not have long legs at the box office. The horror prequel was only able to rake in $17 million. "It's the fourth in a franchise that they happen to keep very relevant", he said. The First Purge actually opened on July 4, and pulled in $31 million from Wednesday to Sunday.
It also speaks to audiences.
"The First Purge" debuted with $32 million over the five-day frame, and $18.5 million for the weekend. The movie had a $33.8 million opening day and a $11.5 million Thursday night preview launch, which accounts for $45.3 million (well over half) of the opening weekend.
