Eternals soars to 2nd best box office opening in Korea; tracking for biggest pandemic era 1st weekend in US and worldwide for Marvel

It looks like there’s no stopping Marvel Studio’s domination at the box office across the globe even during the COVID-19 pandemic, regardless if the threat levels have recently reduced. After Black Widow and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings surprised one and all, Marvel’s latest entry, Eternals, is tracking for the biggest opening weekend in both US and worldwide during the pandemic era. Industry experts are pegging Eternals to bring in about $80-85 million over its first weekend in the US, where it has released in over 4000 theatres, which would just edge it past Shang Chi’s $75 million opening weekend and Black Widow’s $80 million opening weekend.

Furthermore, said trade experts are also pegging the Chloe Zhao directorial, starring Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Geema Chan, Brian Tyree Henry, Barry Keoghan, Lauren Ridloff, Lia McHugh, Harish Patel, Salma Hayek and Kit Harington to rake in approximately or perhaps slightly more than $150 million globally for its debut weekend, which would put it well ahead of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ $128 million worldwide during the same fame and maybe just past Black Widow’s $150 million in its first weekend.

Initial numbers that have already come in are extremely encouraging, with Eternal having achieved the second best opening ever during the COVID-19 era in South Korea with $2.6 million, behind only Vin Diesel and John Cena‘s Fast & Furious 9, a franchise that already has a massive built-in fanbase all over the world. It looks like the mixed early reviews for Eternals have had no bearing whatsoever on the audience, once again solidifying Marvel as a critic-proof franchise.
