A big opening night and burly holiday Friday numbers are pointing to another Marvel blockbuster, this one good enough to make cinema owners remember pre COVID bottom lines.
Huge HUGE opening. Deadline.com is saying $190 million in North America is within reach.
Nothing else in the top ten matters, no overseas market where this is opening expects it to underperform –$300 million worldwide by midnight Sunday.
It may not turn out to be the culture shifting phenomenon that “Black Panther” was, but business is business. No time to mourn while there’s money to be made, and all that.
That kind of BO could underwrite a lot of real Chadwick Boseman murals, all over.
I’ll update this Sunday as more data is released.
