Ant-Man Steals the Top Spot at the Box Office

Ant-Man managed to steal a giant-sized small opening at the box office this weekend.  I say giant because $58 is pretty good for any other movie out there, however when relating to the Marvel Universe it is actually quite small and marks the second lowest debut (with The Incredible Hulk's $55.4 million taking the cake). This isn't necessarily a bad thing because Ant-Man is still on track to make loads of money for the studio, especially since it also has matched it's domestic take overseas ($56.4 million) this weekend.

The other movie to debut this weekend, Amy Schumer's Trainwreck picked up a strong 3rd place ($30.2 million).

Minions picked up another $50 million this weekend, helping it pass the $200 million mark domestically.  Worldwide, this film has already grossed $625.8 million.

In other news Jurassic World has surpassed the $600 million mark domestically, and is only the 4th film to do so.  It has also surpassed Furious 7's worlwide total of $1.511 billion to become the biggest movie of 2015 and the 4th highest grossing movie ever.  It looks on track to surpass The Avengers' $1.519 billion this week for 3rd place. Universal also has 3 out of the top five films at the box office this weekend, a feat that hasn't been done since 2003.
