Theater counts: Eternals stays the widest release

November 11, 2021


Last week saw the debut of Walt Disney’s latest Marvel blockbuster in Eternals. The film captured a superb opening weekend of $71.3 million domestically and $90.7 million overseas, and currently enjoys a six-day domestic total of $85 million. It will keep its opening weekend theater count of 4,090 heading into this weekend. The only wide release to open this week, and the second-widest film in theaters is Clifford the Big Red Dog, which had a rare Wednesday opening where it earned $2.3 million. Clifford will jump from 3,407 to 3,700 theaters this weekend. Rounding out the top five are the familiar faces of Dune, in 3,282 theaters, and No Time to Die and Venom: Let There be Carnage in 2,867 and 2,538 locations respectively.

Focus Features’s coming of age comedy-drama Belfast arrives in 580 locations, which keeps it just outside of the boundary to be a true wide release. The film showcases a young boy’s childhood amidst the tumult of Belfast, Northern Ireland in the 1960s. Also new in limited release this week is the documentary, Julia. The film, which brings to life the legendary cookbook author and television superstar Julia Child—who changed the way Americans think about food, television, and even women—opens in New York and Los Angeles this weekend before branching out to other locales next week.

Next weekend sees the release of two wide releases: Ghostbusters: Afterlife and King Richard. The Ghostbusters franchise has taken in just over $740 million worldwide since the original film’s launch in 1984. The latest installment is set to release in an estimated 4,000 locations. King Richard is the biographical drama which follows the life of Richard Williams, the father and coach of famed tennis players Serena and Venus Williams. It is estimated to open in 3,000 theaters.
