'Ant-Man and the Wasp' marks Marvel's 20th straight No. 1 opening

To date, the first 19 titles have earned a jaw-dropping $17 billion at the global box office, making it the highest-grossing film franchise of all-time. This means movie theaters across the country will only show domestic movies rather than films from the US.
Ant-Man and the Wasp squashed the competition at the North American box office. In this newest entry in the MCU, the Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) returns and teams up with the Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) to uncover secrets from their past. Not only did Ant-Man And The Wasp debut this weekend with an impressive $76 million, but Incredibles 2 retained its number two spot at the box office, causing Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom to slip to number three after being at the number one spot for the last two weeks.
Globally, Ant-Man and the Wasp debuted with $85 million from international markets, giving the sequel a worldwide opening of $161 million, adding to the $17 billion global haul of all the movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Be that as it may, it makes Ant-Man and the Wasp's slightly disappointing opening... well, disappointing. The latest MCU production also continued the trend in topping the box office during its opening weekend, a feat that every movie in the MCU has accomplished.

Another debut for the weekend is Roadside Attractions and Miramax's Whitney, which brought in $1.3 million from 452 locations for the 11th spot on the list.
Also opening in limited release was Annapurna's "Sorry to Bother You", which landed the best per screen average of the weekend with $44,881. Boots Riley's film brought in US$717,302 when it opened in 16 theatres.
Finishing in second is Disney and Pixar's Incredibles 2 delivering an estimated $29 million for a domestic cume that now stands at $504.3 million. In five weeks, the documentary on Fred Rogers has amassed an impressive $12.4 million.
The movie takes place two years after Captain America: Civil War and a few days prior to the events of Avengers: Infinity War.
