Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania Nears $100M Global Box Office, On Track for $225M+ Worldwide Debu

Disney/Marvel's Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania has taken flight at the international box office, grossing $52.6M in eight new overseas markets as of Friday. The film has already grossed $98.6M globally, getting closer to the $100M mark. 

However, the projections for the global weekend box office are lower than initially anticipated, with an estimated total of $225M+. This is partly due to the sci-fi elements of the film not resonating with all audiences, as we noted in our preview.

Despite this, the film is performing exceptionally well in Europe, with Spain's opening day 204% higher than the original and the UK's opening day 183% higher than Ant-Man. In Latin America, the film is on track, although there is some softness in the Asia Pacific region, with the exception of Australia.

Currently, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is playing in 51 markets worldwide and is 30% ahead of the original Ant-Man and 24% below Ant-Man and The Wasp on a like-for-like basis. Both of the earlier installments played during the summer, whereas the latest film is playing during a non-traditional movie-going season.

Although the projections are slightly lower than anticipated, the film is still performing well in key markets. 

In China, where the film opened on Thursday, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania grossed around $6.3M through Friday. In Japan, the film saw an 18% uptick compared to Ant-Man and The Wasp and 56% compared to Ant-Man. India had a humongous opening, coming in 53% over Ant-Man and The Wasp and a staggering 650% ahead of Ant-Man.

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania Eyes Box Office Domination with Strong International Debut

Overall, the top 10 markets as of Friday are China ($6.2M), the UK ($4.5M), Mexico ($3.8M), Korea ($3.2M), France ($2.6M), Australia ($2.4M), Indonesia ($2.2 M), Germany ($2.2M), Brazil ($1.9M), and Italy ($1.5M). With a full update expected on Sunday, it remains to be seen whether Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania can exceed projections and continue to soar at the box office.
