Marvel’s Black Widow managed to grab $13.2 million at the Thursday box office.
It has been a long time coming but Scarlett Johansson’s long-awaited solo entry as Black Widow is finally out and it looks like it’ll continue the trend of successful Marvel films. Johansson’s final stint as Black Widow racked up $13.2 million on Thursday evening box office previews. The film opened to well over 4,100+ screens, as well as 375+ IMAX auditoriums. Marvel’s latest has also opened in 30 international markets, grossing $22.4 million through the end of Thursday.
Theatres around the world are opening up, though some are still limiting the number of patrons inside an auditorium. Major markets such as Ontario, as of writing this, still haven’t opened up theatres. While these numbers are great, especially in a post-pandemic landscape, Black Widow is also available to stream on Disney Plus via Premiere Acess for $30 USD or $35 CAD. Premier Access has proven to be a success with films like Cruella and Mulan, so it’s no doubt that the direct-to-consumer option will likely eat into the Marvel film’s opening weekend numbers.
