‘Black Widow’ Long Range Tracking For A $90M-$130M Box Office Opening
New long range box office tracking for Marvel Studios’ Black Widow has dropped and it looks like the storied studio has another hit on its hands.
According to Box Office Pro, the Scarlett Johansson led film is looking to make $90-130 million in its domestic opening weekend at the box office.
The studio is keeping to its global opening despite the rapid rise in the coronavirus that has plagued other big budget tentpoles such as Disney’s Mulan and Sony’s No Time To Die, which pushed back eight months from April 2020 to November 2020, which would pit it against Disney Animations newest original film Raya and the Last Dragon.
The tracking for Black Widow is on par with fellow standalone Marvel films such as, Spider-Man: Far From Home $92M, Captain Marvel $152M, Thor: Ragnarok $122M, and Doctor Strange $85M.
Box Office Pro has a great track record when it comes to their projections, however, a lot of the time blockbuster films like Black Widow usually exceed long range tracking especially closer to release when studios ramp up their marketing campaigns.
In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff aka 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 portrays Alexei/The Red Guardian, and Rachel Weisz is Melina. Directed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige.
Black Widow, the first film in Phase 4 of Marvel Cinematic Universe hits theaters on May 1, 2020.
