BLACK ADAM Early Box Office Tracking Points To A Solid $55 - $75 Million Opening Weekend

Initial tracking numbers for Black Adam have hit the board, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's superhero movie debut is expected to bring in between $55 and $70 million during its opening weekend...

Black Adam is set to hit theaters around this time next month, and the final live-action DC Comics movie of 2022 (well, there's only been one other) looks set for a pretty decent opening weekend at the North American box office.

According to Box Office Pro's early estimates, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's superhero debut should take in between $55 million and $70 million domestically.

While this is obviously be quite a bit less than the $100 million many major studio comic book movies manage to amass (pre-pandemic, at least), it would still be a perfectly respectable haul, and could potentially give Johnson a career-best opening weekend (besting Hobbs and Shaw's $60M).

The trailers haven't gone over particularly well with fans, so positive word-of-mouth will likely be key to Black Adam having legs. It's also worth keeping in mind that the film will have very little in the way of competetion until Black Panther: Wakanda Forever releases three weeks later. 

Check out some new poster art from Boss Logic below.

"From New Line Cinema, Dwayne Johnson stars in the action adventure Black Adam. The first-ever feature film to explore the story of the DC Super Hero comes to the big screen under the direction of Jaume Collet-Serra (“Jungle Cruise”). Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods— and imprisoned just as quickly—Black Adam (Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world."

Johnson stars alongside Aldis Hodge (City on a Hill, One Night in Miami) as Hawkman, Noah Centineo (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before) as Atom Smasher, Sarah Shahi (Sex/Life, Rush Hour 3) as Adrianna, Marwan Kenzari (Murder on the Orient Express, The Mummy) as Ishmael, Quintessa Swindell (Voyagers, Trinkets) as Cyclone, Bodhi Sabongui (A Million Little Things) as Amon, and Pierce Brosnan (the Mamma Mia! and James Bond franchises) as Dr. Fate.

Black Adam will be released nationwide on 21st October 2022 by Warner Bros. Pictures.
