BOX OFFICE REPORT: WAKANDA FOREVER DOMINATES

Wakanda Forever dominates November releases; Black Adam reaches $350 million worldwide; Spielberg's The Fabelmans impresses in limited release.
WRITTEN BY ELLIOT LINES / NOVEMBER 14, 2022

There was only ever going to be one film on the mind this weekend, and it is no surprise there aren't many pitching against it. That film, Black Panther Wakanda Forever. With a staggering opening of $180 million domestically, it makes it number 13 on the list of all time domestic launch weekends and the biggest opening domestically in the month of November. With the first Black Panther making just over $20 million more than this, it may show that people are still coming out in droves for the big superhero franchise.


The numbers don't stop there, as the next installment in the Marvel cinematic universe also managed to make and addition $150 million across the rest of the world, bring it to a healthy early total of around $330 million. This won't stop here however as Wakanda Forever now has a fairly long run before any other "big" releases come into play, having knocked the recent big releases of the map.


Coming in at #2 this week, Black Adam, and its of no surprise that this only went to make $8.6 million (-52.9%). This is an expected drop as one superhero film goes up against another, seemingly this was no contest. The Dwayne Johnson led film had now made over $350 million worldwide, with a budget of around $200 million, this may just have returned some profit.


Rounding out the rest of the top 5 were the likes of Ticket to Paradise, Lyle Lyle Crocodile and Smile, all making small amounts to add to their current totals.


The only other notable story this weekend may just be Spielberg's The Fabelmans, which made $160,000. Now this may not sound high but when its was a limited release, in only 4 theatres, that returned an average of $40,000 per theatre which happens to be one of the biggest returns of the year per theatre.
