The day of release has finally arrived for Black Widow and all eyes are on the box office performance. But even before the first show of the day premieres, good marks have been rolling in for Scarlett Johansson’s superhero movie.
Except in the US, the film will be released in several overseas markets, where ticket sales started on Wednesday. The report of 11 overseas territories is out of everything. According to the report, the film has sold tickets worth $5 million (approximately) according to Variety. In the UK, the buzz is on another level, as it is the first Marvel film released in the last two years. In the UK it has come round $1.7 million from the presale.
Behind the UK follows France, which has witnessed $1.6 million through ticket sales so far.
Black Widow is predicted to earn minimal $50 million from the overseas territories in its first weekend. In the domestic market, it is expected to beat F9 and between $75 to 80 million dollars.
Aided by Cate Shortland, Black Widow witnesses Scarlett Johansson reprising her character from Natasha Romanoff. She was part of several Marvel movies with the same character, starting with Iron Man 2.
Meanwhile, just a day ago, Scarlett made headlines when sources confirmed her pregnancy. She is expecting her first child with Colin Jost.
A source close to the actress said: “She hasn’t done many interviews or events to promote ‘Black Widow’, which is surprising because it’s a huge Marvel/Disney release and she’s both the star and an executive producer,” as reported by Page Six. On the other hand, she prefers virtual promotions for Black Widow.
