In its second week of openings in most markets around the world, the new superhero blockbuster of the DC Extended Universe Black Adam continues to cause a global fever when dominating the box office, despite the opening screen. eye of the Halloween blockbuster series.
According to figures from Box Office Mojo, over the weekend, Black Adam grossed $27.7 million at the North American box office, accounting for 42% of the entire market. This number helps The Rock’s latest blockbuster total to reach $ 111 million. Since Aquaman, no DCEU work has crossed the $100 million mark at such an impressive rate as Black Adam.
In international markets, Black Adam has also reached the $ 139 million mark, helping the DC work to pocket a total of $ 250 million after 10 days. This number is expected to continue to increase spectacularly when the film is released in key markets such as China on November 11, or Japan in early December.
The Vietnamese box office last weekend also witnessed the dominance of the new DC blockbuster, although a series of other notable works are about to hit theaters such as Confidential Assignment (Vietnamese title: Transnational Agent) with the participation of Actor Hyun Bin or horror blockbuster Prey for the Devil (Vietnamese title: Devil’s bait).
Although not breaking a series of box office records, Black Adam still deserves to be considered a blockbuster worth the money to warm up the box office after a dismal period. The eye-catching close-quarters combat, eye-catching visual effects, and accessible story make the film a top choice for moviegoers in theaters. Black Adam’s good theatrical record opens up opportunities for this new franchise and also for DCEU productions. Recently, the news that Henry Cavill will return to the role of Superman makes fans extremely excited.
After Black Adam, the DC universe will return in 2023 with a series of high-quality blockbuster titles, starting with Shazam! Fury of the Gods (Vietnamese title: Shazam! Wrath of the Gods) in March – the sequel to the highly-rated title of the teenage superhero Shazam.
