Ant-Man and the Wasp is said to have opened with $76 million for the weekend, which is right on the money according to the first estimates of $75 million. Across 20 films, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has brought in US$17 billion globally.
Though Ant-Man and the Wasp isn't throwing up the same kind of numbers that bigger franchises in the MCU normally do, Disney is still quite satisfied with the numbers.
With $161 million in ticket sales and an 86 percent rating at Rotten Tomatoes, Ant-Man and The Wasp did what a good sequel should do by improving over the original.

Also opening in limited release was Annapurna's "Sorry to Bother You", which landed the best per screen average of the weekend with $44,881. Incredibles 2 has yet to open in Japan, Spain, Italy, Germany and South Korea.

The Pixar sequel is now just shy of topping Disney's Beauty and the Beast to become the 11th highest grossing domestic release of all-time and should have no problem moving into the top ten. Internationally, "Incredibles 2" has made $269 million. France quickly ranks as the sixth largest market for Incredibles 2 behind China ($48.7m), Mexico ($33.8m), Australia ($24.6m), Brazil ($15.4m) and Russian Federation ($14.3m).
Ant-Man and the Wasp now has a $161.03 million worldwide gross ($85 million foreign).
