Box office numbers are coming in for previews of Marvel’s “Ant Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” and they’re huge. Total was $17.5 million — and that’s just previews!
Shows are sold out everywhere across the land — and that’s despite pretty bad reviews. Rotten Tomatoes has “Ant Man 3” had just 48%. But obviously audiences don’t care. They’re coming anyway.
Meanwhile, the expansion to over 2,000 theaters for “Magic Mike’s Last Dance” has not helped. Poor Mike has collapsed in a heap. The romdancecom is making less money now than when it was in “limited” release. Video on demand, here we come!
Some good news: “A Man Called Otto” will cross $60 mil tonight. Well played by Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.
