exactly with that budget the film is not tanking unlike solo that cost 300mill

Came in slightly higher than estimated with $29,097,859(-61.6%).

Pretty good hold all things considered, lower drop than Homecoming despite the Thursday previews making up a bigger percentage of the opening weekend. $200M+ looks like a good target and beating the first Ant-Man's domestic(and OS) total should be a done deal.

Exact totals after Sunday:

Domestic: $133,083,084
+ Foreign: $150,932,615
= Worldwide: $284,015,699

Excellent! Per deadline it’s OS numbers are running 33% ahead of the original’s. If that were to hold everywhere that still leaves a shot at $650 million WW alive. I don’t think it gets there but over 600 looks very good, at least to me, right now.

QFT

QF those who erroneously think there WONT be an AM3. There WILL. And it’s gonna be the best entry especially if they include more MCU characters such as Hulk, Fantastic Four, etc.

This discussion for me is usually if i liked the film:

1/ reward the studio for doing it that way (encourages them to make films i like).
2/ makes enough so they do a sequel.

Do we really want a third ant man film though? Loved them both but think 3 might be pushing it.

Each number is the cumulative gross on a particular day divided by the first weekend.

The final multiplier is the final gross divided by the first weekend.

Higher is better.

Ant-Man 2's first 10 days have done well within the context of MCU sequels. As long as it keeps pace (similar high numbers) with the other movies that have the higher multipliers, it will finish above average for an MCU sequel. The MCU sequel average is now a 2.5 multiplier. That utterly average multiplier would have Ant-Man 2 finishing with $189.5M domestically.

Thank you kindly! Great analysis and expert opinion. I really appreciate your input!

Both Ant-Man and AMATW have had next to zero cameo from the Avengers (exception being Falcon in Ant-Man), but when they make #3 I believe Marvel will go all out and let a few Avengers to show up in the sequel, similar to what they did for Thor and Cap. And I do believe that it was a mistake to have AMATW be so standalone and not get any involvement with IW, but Avengers 4 will likely help to get Ant-Man become more popular.

Little update from Mendelson:

Quote:
Walt Disney's Ant-Man and the Wasp earned around $5.5 million (+54% from Monday), as it sets out to prove that it can be closer (in terms of legs) to Spider-Man: Homecoming than Captain America: Civil War. A $142.16m 12-day domestic total for a $160m sequel that has only opened in half the world and should be over/under $300m worldwide by today is no chump change. In the end, the second Ant-Man may merely sell about as many tickets as the first Ant-Man ($180m in 2015, around $199m adjusted). A $200m domestic total is still possible. But even if it falls short, we should still remember how few sequels in this day-and-age open bigger and gross more than their predecessors in North America. That Ant-Man and the Wasp has opened higher and may tie the gross of its predecessor is a win.

I think the sequel gained a lot of MCU devotees since 2015, but lost an equal number of ticket sales for this just being a more typical Hollywood sequel, instead of one of the more integrated chapters of the MCU. Plus being the third MCU film in 5 months - that's a little oversaturation. Even delaying it a month would have helped a little. Call me greedy, I realize most sequels make less than the original - Deadpool is the most recent prime example.

Except for Marvel sequels. Captain America 2, Thor 2, Guardians 2... that logic of sequel not making as much doesn't work here.

Iron Man, Avengers and Deadpool are exceptions because those first films were such unexpected uber blockbusters at the box office. Ant-Man was not. It played more like the above mentioned titles. This sequel has no reason it shouldn't have improved.

But it doesn't apply here in the first place. It's guaranteed to outgross the first one.

Well, Mendelson is using ticket-price-inflation adjusted dollars, where it may not, not raw grosses.

Of course, if we’re using that metric IW is a disappointment since it didn’t beat Avengers.

I would have preferred a significant gap after the huge 1-2 punch of BP and IW straight after each other.

This. If anything Antman is proving that the MCU continues to perform above the norm for sequels.

Because people here are expecting it to make over $500 billion dollars...

Sigh

AMATW will make at least $190 million and as much as $210 Million. It’s profitabke and that’s all that matters. As long as it is profitable, we will see a third movie. And I believe that’s what most of us here want to see. An even better movie, possibly the best entry in the Ant Man franchise that could potentially have cameos from the Hulk and Fantastic Four!
