The Disney-Marvel film saw weekend earnings of $4.09 million, a drop of 54% compared with the previous session. Since release on July 7, it has accumulated $19.2 million, putting it within $25,000 of the 2021 record currently enjoyed by “F9.”
“The Medium,” a highly-anticipated horror film that involves Thai director Banjong Pisanthanakun and Korean producer-director Na Hong-jin (“The Chaser”), came second over the weekend, earning $2.82 million.
The film was launched on Wednesday and had started brightly, initially beating “Black Widow.” Over five days it has accumulated $5.05 million.
While their screen counts were not hugely dissimilar – “Black Widow” had 1,577, against 1,402 for “The Medium” – the American film accounted for 48% of the nationwide box office market, compared with just 33% for “The Medium.”
