Why is Quantumania not there?

Because that post is a week old, and before Ant-Man was released.

Indeed. Problem with the single thread method.

Here's this weekend:



By comparison, Ant-man opened to $57.2m and Ant-man 2 pulled $75.8m on opening weekend.

That is quite a large drop for Ant-Man.

A defense for Ant Man's drop could be that it had a boosted 3-day wknd from President's Day. Still, I'd be surprised if it hits 600m... even 500m could still be in doubt.

A good point, and I had forgotten.

Impressive opening for Creed III, impressive hold for Paddington 3. Another rough drop for Quantumania.

I still haven't seen Ant-Man (got covid and had to cancel opening week) but Scott Mendelson basically said that the standalone Ant-Man films are done for. They just don't make the type of money that is expected. The drop-offs week to week have been awful for it.

Is this the first of the Creed movies to open at #1? I know for sure that the first Creed movie got beat by one of the Pitch Perfect movies.

I think so. Wreck It Ralph 2 opened #1 against Creed II.

So happy to see Creed 3's success, but what in the world caused such a huge jump? That was very unexpected...

Yeah this is the last time we’ll see Disney pay the bill for a Scott Lang/Ant-Man movie. The series is dead.

That's a shame, the first two were a blast.

Solid results abound for Scream and Creed. 65 is there too.

Could there finally be comic book movie fatigue after Ant-Man 3 and Shazam 2?

Naw, it is the built-in prequel to the upcoming JESUS RESURRECTIONS though.

Kind of sad they skipped over JESUS RELOADED.

John Wick has improved with each opening, not too shabby. This is Reeves' second biggest opening behind Matrix Reloaded.

Fury of the Gods? More like Fury of the Movie Execs amirite?
