Eternals Debuts With $9.5 Million During Thursday Previews

Eternals scored big bucks during its Thursday night previews, scoring $9.5 million. That is the third-best Thursday previews gross during the pandemic, behind Black Widow with $13.2 Million and Venom: Let There Be Carnage which grossed $11.6 million last month. That is also ahead of Shang-Chi and the Legend of The Ten Rings, which grossed $8.8 million its first night back a couple of months ago. Tracking for the film is putting its opening weekend at around $75 million, not bad for a pandemic box office and a part of the MCU that nobody knows anything about, really. We will update with the final number this weekend, of course, sometime on Sunday.

Eternals Is A Hard Sell, But There Is Plenty To Like

Marvel Studios' "Eternals" follows a group of heroes from beyond the stars who had protected the Earth since the dawn of man. When monstrous creatures called the Deviants, long thought lost to history, mysteriously return, the Eternals are forced to reunite in order to defend humanity once again.
