Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” Targets $95M Domestic and $255M Global Debut at the Box Office
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Box Office Prediction
The eagerly awaited Marvel movie, “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” is poised to breathe new life into the sluggish winter box office when it arrives in theaters this weekend.
Starring Paul Rudd as the lovable subatomic superhero, the third standalone installment in the “Ant-Man” franchise is expected to generate an impressive $95 million to $100 million in box office receipts across North America during the traditional weekend and up to $110 million over President’s Day on Monday.
As the only new nationwide release, “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” is widely predicted to easily claim the number one spot at the box office, unseating current champ, “Magic Mike’s Last Dance.”
At the international box office, the movie is projected to bring in at least $160 million, with some estimates predicting as much as $190 million.
Notably, “Quantumania” will be one of the few Hollywood movies, and only the second Marvel tentpole after 2019’s “Avengers: Endgame” and “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” to play in Chinese movie theaters.
With China predicted to contribute between $35 million and $55 million to the final weekend tally, it could prove to be a key market for the success of the film.
What Reviewers Say?
Based on domestic box office estimates, the newest “Ant-Man” film is predicted to have a lower revenue than recent Marvel movies like “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” “Thor: Love and Thunder,” and “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” However, this is not entirely surprising, as previous “Ant-Man” films have traditionally earned less than other Marvel movies.
Nonetheless, “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” the latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is already outperforming its predecessors in terms of opening weekend revenue.
The film is directed by Peyton Reed and serves as the 31st installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the lofty responsibility of kicking off Phase Five of the franchise.
Phase Five continues with “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” “The Marvels,” “Captain America: New World Order,” “Thunderbolts,” and “Blade.”
According to Rolling Stone‘s film critic David Fear, the film only partially fulfills this responsibility of setting up the next phase of the MCU. He wrote in his review, “An ant can carry 10-15 times its body weight, yet as the designated kick-off film tasked with setting up the next two-phase, multi-movie/TV arc, ‘Quantumania’ is still being crushed by having to bear way too much of a franchise burden.”
Despite this, reviews rarely matter when it comes to Marvel, especially in terms of opening weekend turnout. The long-running franchise’s interconnected universe, which spans both the big and small screens, ensures that every new adventure is a must-see for comic book fans.
Returning cast members in “Quantumania” include Evangeline Lilly, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Michael Douglass, while new additions include Jonathan Majors as the villainous Kang the Conqueror, Kathryn Newton as Scott Lang’s daughter, and William Jackson Harper as Quaz.
The film follows Ant-Man and his team as they are transported to the mysterious Quantum Realm, which defies the laws of space and time, in order to save the planet from the forces of evil.
Overall, while “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” may not be the highest-grossing Marvel film to date, it is still a highly-anticipated entry in the franchise with a loyal fan base eager to see how the story will progress in Phase Five of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
