comic book epic of Miracle ‘Eternal’ once again dominated the US box office.
In its second weekend, the superhero adventure grossed $27.5 million in 4,090 US theaters. As of this Sunday, “Eternos” has crossed the $100 million mark in the US and Canada, with a total box office of $118 million. Although COVID-19 comes in the way of such comparisons, some films crossed $100 million in 2021.
“Eternal” was down 61 percent from its $71 million release weekend, which is the average for other Pandemic Marvel releases, “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” (which is down 52 percent from its opening weekend) and “Black Widow”. Is. (which was down 67 per cent).
Like “Eternal”, “Shang-Chi” is only showing in physical theaters, while “Black Widow” premiered on Disney Plus ($30 plus monthly subscription) on the same day it opened in theaters.
Compared to recent releases in Marvel’s cinematic universe, “Eternal” has not received the best reviews. He was the only person to receive a “Rotten” rating on the review site Rotten Tomatoes, and one of the few to receive an audience rating of less than an “A” on CinemaScore.
These factors did not affect Sony’s comic book “Venom: Time of Carnage”, which has similar audience and critic ratings. However, film watchers have developed very high expectations (and standards) for Disney’s Marvel cinematic universe, which is at a high level critically and commercially.
