This overwrought superhero flick has the lowest Rotten Tomatoes score and audience CinemaScore of any title in the Marvel Cinematic Universe”— Paul Ebeling

Chloé Zhao’s Eternals fought its way to a $71-M debut from 4,090 theaters in North America, the low end of expectations but fared better overseas for a worldwide start of $161.7-M, the 2nd-biggest global opening of the VirusCasedemic era.

Eternals‘ domestic start the lowest of any of the 26 titles Marvel’s cinematic universe, it received a B CinemaScore. 

Elsewhere at the box office

Pablo Larrain’s specialty film Spencer starring Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana started off with $2.1-M from 996 theaters, underscoring the challenges facing adult-skew dramas now. Neon is hopeful that Spencer, coming # 8, will have long legs throughout awards season.

Surveys find that moviegoers over 45 anni, and even over 35 anni, are reluctant to return to cinemas.

But, this title is providing a major boost for the specialty market is Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch, which saw a Zero decline from last weekend. The Searchlight Pictures film grossed $2.6-M from 996 locations in its 3rd frame for a domestic total of $8.5-M. Overseas, it has grossed $11.1-M from its 1st 16 material markets.

Mainstream offerings

Dune placed #2 domestically with $7.6-M in its 3rd weekend for a domestic total of $83.9-M. Internationally, it finished Sunday with $246.5-M for a global take of $338.4-.

James Bond’s No Time to Die crossed the $500-M milestone overseas to finish the weekend with $524.3-M internationally and $667.1-M worldwide. It placed #3 domestically in its 5th weekend.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage came #4 with $4.5-M for a domestic total of $197-M and $424.6-M worldwide.

Hollywood tentpole Red Notice was also a player on the marquee this weekend, but no 1 knows what it officially grossed since Netflix does not report box office grosses. Some with access to numbers say Red Notice may not have earned much more than $1.3-M, aka Dead on Arrival (DOA).

Have some fun see a movie in a theater this week. Keep the Faith!
