The newest field workplace report is in, and the weekend’s largest new launch, Men in Black: International, gained the weekend but it surely was total a business disappointment.
The spinoff starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson was by no means anticipated to carry out in addition to the sooner movies. It made an estimated $28.5 million within the United States and Canada for its opening weekend, in line with field workplace numbers from Entertainment Weekly.
That’s beneath the $52.1 million that the final film, Men in Black II, made when it opened in 2002. The authentic Men in Black from 1997 made $51 million over its opening weekend. Those motion pictures starred Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones within the lead roles.
Men in Black International was generally a miss with critics, and the CinemaScore score of people that noticed it in theatres was only a B. In GameSpot’s Men in Black International review, Chris Hayner wrote that the movie is “mediocre and unimaginative.”
