Ant-Man And The Wasp US box office down on expectations

Ant-Man And The Wasp US box office down on expectations

Let's revisit Ant-Man. Written in part by Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish, and Adam McKay and Paul Rudd, the MCU adaptation had two basic focuses when it came to science: Hank Pym's shrinking technology and the exploration of the subatomic quantum realm. Other top territories were Russian Federation ($4.9 million), Australia ($4.7 million), and Taiwan ($4.6 million).

The biggest factor for Ant-Man and The Wasp not doing better in the U.S. is the juggernaut Pixar film, Incredibles 2, which was the top box office draw since its debut on June 15.

Ant-Man and the Wasp also put up a decent $85 million from foreign markets for a worldwide debut of $161 million. First reactions to the sequel called it "a freaking blast", and the film now sits at an 86 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with its review consensus reading, "A lighter, brighter superhero movie powered by the effortless charisma of Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, Ant-Man and the Wasp offers a much-needed MCU palate cleanser". France quickly ranks as the sixth largest market for Incredibles 2 behind China ($48.7m), Mexico ($33.8m), Australia ($24.6m), Brazil ($15.4m) and Russian Federation ($14.3m). Over the next few weeks, rollout continues in Korea, Japan, Spain, Italy, and Germany. 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.

Internationally, Incredibles 2 debuted in France this weekend with an estimated $10.6 million (including previews). Things kicked off in February with Black Panther and continued on with the Infinity War installation, with each of those films bringing in nearly $700 million each at the domestic box office. Its five-day total sits at US$31 million.

Thai Cave Rescue: Divers Make Final Push to Save Remaining Boys, Coach
Each boy was accompanied underwater by two divers helping them navigate the dark, murky water in the flooded tunnels. Thai officials started the rescue operation on Sunday as weather experts predicted more rain in the coming weeks.

Rounding out the top five were Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, The First Purge, and Sicario: Day of the Soldado, which earned $28.5 million, $17.1 million, and $7.3 million, respectively. This is the fourth film in the Purge franchise, all of which have delivered strong domestic performances on very low budgets with 2016's The Purge: Election Year serving as the highest grossing of the lot, delivering just shy of $80 million.

It also speaks to audiences.

New offering "The First Purge" launched overseas with $10.9 million in 26 markets, including $2.2 million in the United Kingdom and Ireland, $2.1 million in France, $1.5 million in Germany, and $1.1 million in Spain. This is a notably strong performance given the impact of England's World Cup Quarter-Final game. Upcoming key markets include a July 20 release in Mexico, August 2 release in Russian Federation and a late, December 6 release in Brazil.
