Ant-Man and the Wasp Conquers the Weekend Box Office with $76M

"Ant-Man and the Wasp proves that at this point Marvel can seemingly do no wrong", says Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore.

Following the strong Thursday night box office, it was speculated Ant-Man 2 could open close to $100 million, as the $11.5 million was similar to Guardians of the Galaxy and higher than Doctor Strange, but if I had to guess, there was really no word-of-mouth promotion by general fans, so nobody rushed to see it at the theaters. This makes Incredibles 2 the first animated movie to ever top $500 million, which, of course, makes it the highest grossing animated title ever. As per last weekend, the worldwide estimates are not available at this time.

Overseas, "Ant-Man and the Wasp" collected $85 million, bringing the worldwide opening to $161 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. All 20 films have opened No. 1 at the box office.

In fourth we find Universal and Blumhouse's The First Purge, which debuted on Wednesday and finished with an estimated $17.1 million for the three-day for a five-day opening totaling $31 million. "It's the fourth in a franchise that they happen to keep very relevant", he said. The First Purge looks as if it might not climb to the same heights as its predecessors after a slightly softer opening and a "B-" CinemaScore, but given the film's $13 million budget it doesn't take almost as much for these films to turn a tidy profit. In three weeks, the dinosaur tentpole has earned US$333.3 million in North America.

Universal and Amblin Entertainment's "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" scored $27.6 million from 86 worldwide territories. Finally, Deadpool 2 took the 10th spot this weekend with an additional $1.6 million, bringing the grand total to $727.7 million globally. The Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin-led sequel picked up another $7.6 million, taking the domestic tally to $35 million.

At the specialty box office, Roadside Attractions and Miramax's Whitney bowed with US$1.3 million from 452 locations. Sorry to Bother You also opened this weekend and earned over $717 thousand, giving it the 16th spot.

That was enough to give it the top spot at the United States box office, and make it the studio's 20th straight number one opening. 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 a year ago, according to ComScore.
