Marvel Studios’ Black Widow has now surpassed the $100 million mark at the domestic box office in less than a week. This makes it the fastest film to do so during the pandemic.
Other films released during the pandemic that have crossed 100 million include Universal’s F9 (8 days to the mark), Paramount’s A Quiet Place Part II (15 days), and Warner Bros/Legendary’s Godzilla vs. Kong (12 weekends).
Black Widow made $5.5M yesterday bringing the running total to $100.7M so far. The film made $80M at the domestic box office on opening weekend, $78M at the international box office, and over $60M in Disney+ Premier Access globally.
The film garnered several notable achievements in its opening weekend, including:
- Black Widow is the largest domestic box office opening since the COVID-19 pandemic began and the largest domestic opening weekend since Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker in December 2019.
- The combined theatrical and Disney+ Premier Access opening makes Black Widow the only film to surpass $100M in domestic consumer spend on opening weekend since the start of the pandemic.
- It is the highest domestic opening weekend for a Marvel Cinematic Universe origin story after Black Panther and Captain Marvel.
In the film, Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.
Scarlett Johansson reprises her role as Natasha/Black Widow, Florence Pugh stars as Yelena, David Harbour as Alexei aka The Red Guardian and Rachel Weisz as Melina.
