It may not have set records for Marvel, but Ant-Man still took in a healthy amount to win the weekend at the box office.
Marvel didn’t set the box office on fire with Ant-Man in its opening weekend, but it didn’t fail either. The film missed projections slightly to take in $58 million in its opening weekend. Combined with its foreign take it already stands at $114.44 million off of a $130 million dollar budget.
The domestic take does put it below the original Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, but ahead of The Incredible Hulk.
Minions had a strong second weekend to take in $50.2 million. This puts its domestic take at $216.69 million, and its global haul at $625.79 million. It’s another hit for Universal and puts the studio past the $5 billion mark for the year, the fastest any studio has ever hit that milestone.
Trainwreck, the new comedy from Amy Schumer and Judd Apatow came in right at the projections with $30.2 million. The trick now will be to see how it performs in the coming weeks with a lot of competition on the way.
Inside Out, the latest animated film from Pixar, took fourth place with $11.6 million and a new domestic total of $306.36 million. Globally it stands at $490.16 million.
5. Jurassic World
Jurassic World rounded out the top five with $11.4 million and a new domestic total of $611.17 million making it the fastest film to ever break $600 million domestic. Globally it stands now $1.513 billion and now sits in fourth place on the all-time box office list. It is only $6 million away from overtaking the original Avengers in third place and should easily do so.
