The reviews for “Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania” are not exactly benevolent in many places. However, this does not detract from the success of the new Marvel blockbuster, as it could easily eclipse its two predecessors in the beginning.

For us, Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania is a fun journey into the spectacularly illustrated Quantum Plane that also has a great villain thanks to Kang (Jonathan Majors). The official CELEBTAP review gave it a strong 4 out of 5 stars. But not all critics could relate to the latest Marvel movie as much as we did, as a look at Rotten Tomatoes shows.
On the review aggregation site, “Ant-Man 3” has now tied the negative record of “Eternals” on the platform with 306 reviews collected to date. In both cases only 47 percent of meetings fall positive (as of February 20, 2023), less than any other film from the MCU (for comparison, the Rotten Tomatoes scores of the first two installments are 83 and 87). However, the negative voices haven’t stopped Marvel fans around the world from rushing into the titular Avenger and his family’s third solo adventure.
In the US alone, “Quantumania” grossed a whopping $118 million on its opening weekend. That’s more than twice as much as the debut of the superhero growing up and growing up, which started with $57 million overseas at the time. And the “Ant-Man And The Wasp” sequel, at the time the first MCU movie to receive an attention bonus following the shocking ending of “Avengers 3: Infinity War,” grossed “only” about $76 million in its first few days of release. its production land at the box office.
“Ant-Man 3” replaces “Avatar 2”.
Internationally, the starting result of “Ant-Man 3” is another $ 239 million, so that the comic spectacle has already grossed a whopping $357 million worldwide state – which is not that far off the overall result of the first “Ant-Man” ($519 million).
Not surprising given all these figures: “Quantumania” is also the best-launched “Ant-Man” film in Germany. With 345,000 tickets sold in the first five days (filming started in Germany on Wednesday), it was not only the best start of 2023 yet, but nine weeks later, the record-breaking “Avatar 2: The Way Of Water” topped the local cinema charts .

Of the world’s major film markets, the start of the fifth phase of the MCU, with a disappointing $19.2 million box office result, fell only below expectations and its two predecessors in China – even though the film was strictly regulated in Hollywood’s theatrical releases. blockbusters The Middle Kingdom started at the same time as the rest of the world (this was the case with Disney productions most recently with “Avengers 4: Endgame” in 2019).
Now it remains to be seen whether the 31st MCU film will have staying power and be able to convince at the box office in the coming weeks. After its successful launch, “Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania” should definitely surpass the overall game of the first two “Ant-Man” adventures ($519 and $623 million).
