Eternals has hit theaters. After a weekend after its premiere, we already know the first figures of the new Disney and Marvel movie. Although they are good numbers, it does not manage to surpass the majority of recent releases and its sister films in the UCM. On an international level, Eternals has raised $ 90.7 million. In the United States, it has managed to raise $ 71 million, which add up to a total of $ 167.1 million.
As reported Variety, Eternal’s opening numbers fell a bit short compared to other MCU movies like Black widow (80.3 million dollars in the United States) and Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings (75.3 million dollars in the United States). It also fell below Venom: There Will Be Carnage (90 million dollars in the United States). Internationally, Venom raised $ 395.8 million.
One of the reasons Eternals hasn’t caught up with the other MCU movies could have to do with their mixed reviews and controversies. With a Rotten Tomatoes score of 48%, Eternals is one of the first MCU films to receive a score of “rotten“.
“You have to keep things in perspective “, dice Jeff Bock, analista de Exhibitor Relations. “For any other study, this kind of result would be a great, great success. But the disturbing news for Disney is the critical reception of ‘Eternals’ and how that will affect word of mouth in the future. We could see a sharp drop at the box office on its second or third weekend“.
Eternals is out now in theaters. Spider-Man: No Road Home will be the next MCU movie to premiere on December 17, of which a new poster has just been revealed with a lot of details and secrets about its villains.
