Marvel’s decision to postpone “ Black Widow ” to July 9 was straightforward.
While several cinemas will reopen their doors there, the film’s theatrical collection forecasts have tripled.
Analysts say the film is now expected to raise $ 170 million in the United States when it hits theaters, according to a report from Observer.
For comparison, the projection was that the film would only gross $ 45 million if it was released on May 7.
Jeff Bock, Senior Box Office Analyst at Exhibitor Relations, says:
“It’s very difficult to gauge the success of a film compared to the industry as a whole, especially in this time of transition. That said, the American debut of [Godzilla vs. Kong] gave cinema a much needed boost, and its box office performance in the coming weeks will be closely watched… As for Marvel and other films that have gone further this summer, this can only be help your cause at this point, as science is highlighting things to make the film industry more resilient across the board. This is great news for box office hits, given that budgets are typically around $ 200 million today.
Godzilla vs. Kong raised over $ 300 million at the global box office in just a few weeks. It was the biggest box office debut in the United States since the pandemic began, even though it was also available on HBO Max. Just in case, the audience is finally ready to go back to the movies. Health and safety concerns are slowly diminishing with the distribution of the vaccine. This is good news for Hollywood, ”he said.
Marvel Studios confirmed to CinePOP that “ Black Widow ” will arrive in Brazil for an additional fee of R $ 69.90 via Disney + Premier Access.
That is, streaming subscribers will have to pay the additional amount to watch the movie.
The premiere takes place on July 9, 2021 and the film can also be seen in theaters where it is screened.
