Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is being mauled by Cocaine Bar.

Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp suffered a 69.7 percent drop at the domestic box office during its second weekend, with the superhero movie bringing in an estimated $32.2 million. Meanwhile, Universal’s Cocaine Bear made its box office debut with a $23.1 million weekend after beating Quantumania on its first Friday in North American theaters.

The worldwide total of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania currently stands at $363.6 million, but the Marvel Studios release just had the worst second-weekend drop of any superhero movie opening to $100 million or more. Quantumania is being hurt by poor word of mouth, as reviews for the latest Marvel movie have been mixed at best.
