All this with a simultaneous premiere on Disney + as premium paid content.
Black Widow beats Fast & Furious 9
Thus, Black Widow only on Friday scrubbed the 40 million dollars in collection, to which we must add 13 million from Thursday’s pass and almost 30 million throughout the weekend, a record number in times of pandemic with limited capacity in theaters cinema. In addition, it narrowly beats another house movie like Spider-Man: Far From Home, which made $ 39.25 million on its first Friday. On the other hand, and according to data provided by Disney, Black Widow has raised an additional $ 60 million through Disney + as premium content at 21.99 euros.
We will see what is the evolution of the film that starts Phase 4 of the UCM in cinemas, always taking into account the current context of pandemic, although the figures point very high. Recall that Fast & Furious 9 has recently become the first movie to exceed $ 500 million in gross since Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
If we add the collection of Black Widow in other territories with a total of 78 million dollars through 46 countries, the figure rises to 158 million dollars internationally, to which we must add the 60 million dollars of Disney +. All this without counting on China, one of the most important markets for Marvel Studios, whose premiere remains unknown.
