The Marvels box office projections fall with the sequel now looking at a $140 million worldwide opening weekend.
The Marvels is set to hit theaters in just a few days, but the studio must be getting a little anxious as the box office forecast has actually fallen from previous estimates.
It was reported just three weeks ago that The Marvels was looking at bringing in somewhere between $75-$80 million over its opening weekend, but a new forecast has lowered that estimate to $50-$60 million. International projections are sitting at $80 million, which brings the worldwide box office estimate for The Marvels to somewhere around $140 million. Depending on how the movie fares during Thursday night previews, the opening weekend could dip even lower.
To put into perspective, the worldwide opening weekend of The Marvels could very well come in under previous underperforming Marvel movies such as Eternals with $160 million and Black Widow with $148 million. Recent marketing for the film has been trying to pump up excitement for the movie, with the latest trailer teasing a “moment that changes everything.” There have also been rumours of multiple cameos, but I suppose we’ll have to wait and see how many of them turn out to be true.
“In Marvel Studios’ The Marvels, Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence,” reads the official synopsis. “But unintended consequences see Carol shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe. When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super-fan Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol’s estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau. Together, this unlikely trio must team up and learn to work in concert to save the universe as The Marvels.“
In addition to Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, The Marvels also stars Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan, Zawe Ashton as Dar-Benn, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. The Marvels will hit theaters on November 10th.
