Box Office: ‘Ant-Man 3’ Has Marvel’s Worst Ever Drop, But Still Beats ‘Cocaine Bear’

  1. Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania– $32.2M/$167.3M

Analysts projected a slightly steeper drop for the Ant-Man sequel after last week’s $106M debut. But the 69.7% fall and $32M weekend is still pretty harsh and the worst 2nd-week drop Marvel has ever suffered. But with $363M worldwide after just two weeks, I doubt the folks at Marvel are crying into their tissues right now. At the rate it’s going, surpassing the previous two films is still a possibility.

2. Cocaine Bear (review)- $23M

Ant-Man damn near lost out to a Cocaine Bear! This is one of those films that was guaranteed to be a popular favorite regardless of how the critics felt about it, and with a $23M debut that seems to be how things are playing out. The question is how far can it go? Next week it’ll probably get knocked out the box by Creed III which is poised to deal some heavy blows to the competition.

3. Jesus Revolution– $15.5M

A different kind of addiction in the third spot as Christian drama Jesus Revolution opened huge with $15.5M. The film, which stars Joel Courtney, Kelsey Grammer, and genre stalwart Kimberly Williams-Paisley, centers on the Jesus Movement of the ’60s and ’70s that spread like wildfire.

4. Avatar: The Way of Water– $4.7M/$665.3M

5. Puss in Boots: The Last Wish– $4.1M/$173.4M

6. Magic Mike’s Last Dance– $1.89M/$22.1M

7. Knock At the Cabin– $1.87M/$33.9M

8. 80 for Brady– $1.83M/$36.4M

9. Missing– $1M/$31.4M

10. A Man Called Otto– $850K/$62.2M
