'Ant-Man & the Wasp' Dominates Weekend Box Office!

Ant-Man Mitchell Carson

It's the first animated film to ever earn over $500 million at the North American box office, and the 12th film ever to pull off such a feat. This means movie theaters across the country will only show domestic movies rather than films from the US.

Though Ant-Man and the Wasp isn't throwing up the same kind of numbers that bigger franchises in the MCU normally do, Disney is still quite satisfied with the numbers. Incredibles 2 made $29 million at the United States box office this weekend, bring its domestic box office total to $504 million.

For those who watched Ant-Man and The Wasp, the post-credits scene was one to stay and watch. The latest is this weekend's release of Ant-Man and the Wasp, the 20th installment in the MCU, which debuted with an estimated $76 million over the three-day weekend, out-performing 2015's Ant-Man by almost $20 million.

Globally, Ant-Man and the Wasp debuted with $85 million from international markets, giving the sequel a worldwide opening of $161 million, adding to the $17 billion global haul of all the movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

With the grosses for "Ant-Man and the Wasp" Marvel Studios has now made more than $17 billion worldwide over 20 films. That start is significantly ahead of the original "Ant-Man", which debuted with $57 million in 2015. The latest MCU production also continued the trend in topping the box office during its opening weekend, a feat that every movie in the MCU has accomplished. "We continue to be amazed by what Kevin Feige and the team do with these films".

Solo: A Star Wars Story fell from number nine to number fourteen at the USA box office.

Coming in third is Universal and Amblin's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which brought in an estimated $28.5 million for the three-day weekend and has now pushed its domestic cume to $333.3 million as it begins its third week in release. The dinosaur blockbuster, which just crossed the $1 billion mark at the global box office, has earned $725 million from overseas alone. The documentary focusing on the life and career of Whitney Houston holds an A CinemaScore and a Rotten Tomatoes average of 90 percent. It had a big showing in its debut weekend, but it could have been better. Boots Riley's film brought in US$717,302 when it opened in 16 theatres.

Elsewhere, Focus Features' Won't You Be My Neighbour landed in the top 10 at the domestic box office again, drawing another US$2.6 million when it expanded to 893 locations.

The movie takes place two years after Captain America: Civil War and a few days prior to the events of Avengers: Infinity War.
