‘Eternals’ Powers Up $9.5M Thursday Night, 3rd Best Preview Night During Pandemic – Deadline


Disney’s Marvels Eternals based on the 1976 Jack Kirby characters struck up $9.5M on Thursday from previews that began at 6PM, the third best preview night of the pandemic behind Disney/Marvel’s Black Widow in early July ($13.2M from showtimes that began at 5pm) and Sony’s Venom: Let There Be Carnage ($11.6M from 4pm).

It’s another great result which indicates the ongoing rebound of cinema after a robust October that rang up the best monthly domestic B.O. of the pandemic with $638M; and a fantastic start as we enter the two-month period of holiday moviegoing.

Eternals’ Thursday is also ahead of Disney/Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings which grossed an $8.8M Thursday night. Eternals is also slightly ahead of MCU pre-pandemic November Thursday nights Doctor Strange ($9.4M) and Thor: Dark World ($7.1M).

Like with any superhero movie the question is how front-loaded is it, but that’s an ever bigger headscratcher with Eternals as it’s the worst reviewed MCU title at 49% Rotten, not to mention it has a 2 hour and 37 minutes running time. Bad reviews didn’t stop the Venom movies from reaching great openings, the first movie with $80.2M opening domestic and the latest Venom 2 holding the best opening during the pandemic with $90M.
