Marvel’s “Black Widow” Takes $39 Million Opening Nights, Heads to $80 Mil Weekend


Scarlett Johansson is having a nice week.

Marvel’s “Black Widow” made $26 million Friday night, on top of a $13 million Thursday preview evening.

The total of $39 million is a whopping success, meaning the weekend looks good for at least $80 million.

Plus, Scarlett just announced she’s having a second child, this time with third husband, Colin Jost of “Saturday Night Live.”

You can’t do better than that!

On the opposite side of the box office, “In the Heights” is whittling down to its last weekend, with just 785 theaters. They may not cross the $29 million mark. Sad story.
