To break how Marvel's films performed on the second weekend.
Brian Gallagher and Terri Schvartz
It has traditionally been for most of Marvel films that there are no other competitors on the open weekend, which often leads to big debates in the American home box. With Captain Marvel only on the second weekend in cinemas and already crossing the $ 200 million mark in the United States, many may wonder how his second weekend in the office compared to other films in the MCU franchise. Well, we have the answer.
Here are the views that the films kept their audience up from weekends until the weekend two, ranked among the smallest drops to the largest, with all the data from Bok Office Mojo. Did any of these surprise you?
- Black Panter (2018) – a decline of 44.7%
- Thor (2011) – a decline of 47.2%
- Steel man (2008) – a decline of 48.1%
- Doctor Strange (2016) – A fall of 49.5%
- Marvel's The Avengers (2012) – fall of 50.3%
- Thor: Ragnarok (2017) – fall of 53.5%
- Captain Marvel (2019) – fall of 54.8% (estimate)
- Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) – fall of 55.3%
- Avengers: Infinite War (2018) – fall of 55.5%
- Guardians of the Vol. 2 (2017) – fall of 55.5%
- Man of the ant (2015) – fall of 56.5%
- Captain America: Winter soldier (2014) – fall of 56.6%
- Thor: The Dark War (2013) – a decline of 57.3%
- Iron Man 3 (2013) – fall of 58.4%
- Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) – a fall of 59.4%
- Iron Man 2 (2010) – a fall of 59.4%
- Captain America: Civil War (2016) – a fall of 59.5%
- The Incredible Hulk (2008) – a fall of 60.1%
- Captain America: First Avenger (2011) – a fall of 60.7%
- Ant-Man and Ax (2018) – a decline of 61.6%
- Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) – a decline of 62.2%
It is important to note that the percentage of decline between the first and second weekends is not necessarily a sign of success or failure of the film. However, the smaller it is from the first to the second weekend, the more likely it will be the film will have a continuous significant work at the box office compared to its initial weekend. According to Bok Office Mojo, the average fall of the second weekend for the MCU film is 56%.
A good piece of these films has been opened by opening the weekend massively, such as the Avengers: Monster $ 257.7 million Open Infiniti Var, so it's pretty standard that many people who will see the blockbuster in their first weekend opening will lead to a relatively average fall of the second weekend . Other films, such as Black Panther, maintained steady lips for weeks, which led to minor weekly crashes, as people continued to see it in theaters and resulted in a powerful cumulative home-made cash register.
Black Panther's low drops during Sunday's edition caused a $ 202 million transition to an impressive $ 700 million in the United States. MCU film in the US. (World ranking is different.)
It seems that Captain Marvel is on the right path to achieve a similar (but possibly somewhat more successful) Guardians of the Galaki Vol. 2. The film also opened with a healthy number ($ 146.5 million versus $ 153.4 million for Captain Marvel) and crossed $ 200 million in the second weekend ($ 248.4 million for GotG 2 vs. $ 266.2 million for CM). Guardians of the Vol. 2 earned $ 389.8 million in the United States, so if Captain Marvel stays on this track, he has a good chance to reach a $ 400 million gross mark by the end of his run – which, in context, would make him the seventh highest film in the United States.
All MCU films, but five, managed to win at least the first two weekends, and The Avengers and Avengers: Infiniti Var won the first three weekends and Black Panther with the largest set of all MCU films, winning the first five weekends in a row – the feat was so rare movie from Avatar to now.
While each MCU movie was opened for the first number on the side of the office, only five films in the franchise had only one week: the bottom four on the above list and one surprise that was ranked much more.
The first is, which is not surprising, the smallest MCU film, The Incredible Hulk from 2008. This film, another in the history of the MCU, which opened only a few months after Iron Man in the summer of 2008, fell 60.1% and fell to second place on the second weekend, behind Get Smart, who debuted with 38 , $ 1 million. The other was Captain America 2011: The First Avenger, who fell 60.7% on the second weekend with $ 25.5 million, dropping to third place in his second shot, behind Covbois & Aliens ($ 36.4 million) and The Smurfs ($ 35.6 million).
The third – surprise in the mix – were the Guardians of the Galaki 2014, which dropped 55.3% from $ 42.1 million, dropping to second place behind the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ($ 65.5 million). Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (a fall of 56.5% with a total gross income of US $ 191.2 million) ended up worse than the Guardians; Interestingly, GotG continued to take first place in the box office on the fourth, fifth and sixth weekend release thanks to a positive word and reception, and went to gross $ 333 million in the US.
The fourth MCU film is Ant-Man and Osa ($ 75.8 million), which fell by 61.6% from $ 29 million, and the other at Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Break ($ 44 million). The final of five is the movie with the biggest MCU second weekend, Spider-Man: Homecoming. That film fell 62.2% in second-tier to make $ 44.2 million, behind the war for a monkey planet ($ 56.2 million).
Out of these five films, only four failed to cross the desired $ 200 million mark at the home box. The four cheaper MCU films that could not exceed $ 200 million were Thor ($ 181.1 million), Ant-Man ($ 180.2 million), Captain America: The First Avenger ($ 176.6 million) and The Incredible Hulk (134, $ 8 million).
