Marvel Studios’ Black Widow fell to second place in its second weekend at the domestic box office (Space Jam: A New Legacy $31.7M) after earning $26.3M. In North America, the film has now earned $131M. Overseas, the Scarlett Johansson-led film brought in $29.9M, giving it a global total of $264M. If you include Disney+ Premier Access purchases, the film has earned more than $324M.
The $26.3M it earned stateside represents a 67% drop from its first weekend. That number is on par with other blockbuster films that have opened in this post pandemic year (F9 67%).
Black Widow has yet to open in China, which should give it a boost at the global box office. Unfortunately, it still looks like the Phase Four film will likely finish at the bottom of MCU earners. Right now ($264M), it’s in last place behind The Incredible Hulk ($265M), Captain America: The First Avengers ($370M), Thor ($449M), and Ant-Man ($518M).
I’m sure had the pandemic not occurred, it would have earned over a $1B, putting it in the top 10.
