Holiday BOX OFFICE: “Purge” owns Wed. night, “Ant-Man/Wasp” set to dominate weekend

purge5A healthy evening opening across America for “The First Purge” comprised about $2.5 million in ticket sales, per 

It might manage $30 million or so on its opening half-week and weekend.

“Ant-Man and The Wasp” is set for yet another epic worldwide opening, $85-100 in North America alone.

Reviews have been kind, but with the string of over-performing comic book films this year. will audiences shell out for yet another? Of course they will.

“Incredibles 2” and “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” and May’s holdovers made this the biggest June ever, and biggest second quarter of the year ever at the box office. That follows a first quarter driven by “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Infinity War.”

Quite a change from last year’s “Is this the end of cinema?” collapse.
