As expected, the MCU’s first film in theaters since the pandemic began, ‘Black Widow’ was a box office success.
The expected premiere of ‘Black Widow’ not only shows that streaming has not finished killing the cinema, but also that Disney and Marvel are still taking up arms.
While many hoped that ‘Tenet’ or ‘Godzilla vs. Kong ‘were the productions that broke box office records after the pandemic, stealthily, like a Russian spy,’ Black Widow ‘arrived to take the crown.
So far, ‘Black Widow’ has a total of $ 13.2 million collected, while the most recent, ‘Fast 9’ ($ 7.1 million) and ‘A Quiet Place 2’ ($ 4.8 million) do not even exceed that number by adding their results. .
Surely, Universal and Paramount did not think that Disney and Marvel could affect the results of their productions, since they were released some time apart, however, the arrival of ‘Black Widow’ stole everyone’s attention.
And as? If the MCU had two years without releasing a tape on the big screen. After all, we’re talking about the same company and franchise that dethroned ‘Avatar’ from the top grossing movie of all time.
Now the haters are surely wondering if the movie is turning out to be a hit because it’s actually good, or just because we had a superhero production withdrawal syndrome to quench.
To them, we reply that Rotten Tomatoes rated the film 81%, and that film industry estimates project that ‘Black Widow’ will raise between $ 80 million and $ 90 million in its first 3 days. We are up to date “one”, and they are already almost $ 15 million, so it is possible.
The ‘Black Widow’ title also premiered on Disney Plus under its Premier Access format, indicating that to se her, subscribers must pay a total of $ 29.99. So many are asked how this affects or influences the behavior of the tape at the box office. So far, Disney Plus’s “dual” strategy has not proven faulty, so we believe they can only continue to skyrocket.
