Another band of Spandexed protagonists are enjoying box office success.

Ant-Man & the Wasp has scored a major win at the box office in its opening weekend debut!

The flick opened Thursday with $11.5 million - almost double that of the first movie - but its Friday, Saturday and Sunday numbers didn't hold as high, which basically means a lot of the hard core fans went to see it Thursday night. Currently, Ant-Man And The Wasp has only opened in 48% of the worldwide markets, so we can expect its global box office to grow substantially in the coming weeks.

"Ant-Man and the Wasp proves that at this point Marvel can seemingly do no wrong", says Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore.

Hence why Ant-Man and the Wasp opening less like a box office event is slightly underwhelming, especially given that this was the superhero movie that was supposed to most get a boost from post-Avengers hype. The latest MCU production also continued the trend in topping the box office during its opening weekend, a feat that every movie in the MCU has accomplished. Globally, the film, starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, has amassed $161 million. Internationally, the film has made $5.7 million, and opens in North America on July 13.

Praise seems to be strong for "Ant-Man and the Wasp", which holds a promising 86 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. The studio has had a string of box office hits in 2018 with Avengers: Infinity War racking up over US$2 billion and counting, and Black Panther passing US$1.3 billion globally. It's the first animated film to ever surpass $500 million at the North American box office, and the 12th film ever to do so.

Coming in third is Universal and Amblin's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which brought in an estimated $28.5 million for the three-day weekend and has now pushed its domestic cume to $333.3 million as it begins its third week in release. Overseas, Incredibles 2 made $61 million, bringing its global box office total to $268 million. The Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin-led sequel picked up another US$7.6 million, taking the domestic tally to US$35 million.

As we enter the second half of the year, and the 27th weekend of 2018, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has now claimed the #1 spot at the weekend box office nine times. Solo made just under $1 million domestically, bringing its domestic box office total to $211 million.

Avengers: Infinity War dropped from twelfth place to fifteen place at the USA box office.
