Marvel’s Eternals goes ahead of Black Widow and Shang-Chi for ticket sales on the first day

Marvel’s next big superhero movie, Eternals, tracks a grand opening in the box office, which is another sign of the strength and resurgence of the traditional movie experience.

Deadline reports that Eternals picked up $ 2.6 million in pre-sales during the first 24 hours, which is 86% better than Shang-Chi ($ 1.4 million) and 30% better than Black Widow ($ 2 million). Tickets for Eternals went on sale on Monday and all comparisons are for the first 24 hours of sale.

The site said AMC’s pre-sales in the first 24 hours alone are “the biggest day of sales so far this year.”

Directed by Oscar-winning nomadland director Chloe Zhao, Eternals features a large cast of top talent, including Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Gemma Chan, Salma Hayek, Kit Harington and Kumail Nanjiani, among others.

The full ticket predictions for Eternals’ first weekend in the US are not available yet, but it will likely be compared to other MCU November releases. These have included Thor: Rangnarok ($ 122.7 million), Thor: The Dark World ($ 85.7 million) and Doctor Strange ($ 85 million). These films were released many years ago before the pandemic.

Eternals will be released in theaters on November 5th.
