The upcoming ‘Men in Black‘ reboot won’t hit theaters until June, but we’re already starting to get a look at what the opening weekend numbers will look like.
According to the early tracking reports, ‘Men In Black: International‘ will make around $40 million during its opening weekend in June.
The budget for ‘Men in Black: International’ is $110 million, co-financed by Hemisphere and Tencent.
The previous three ‘Men in Black’ films starred Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones and combined for more than $1.6 billion in worldwide box office. All three scored North American debuts of more than $50 million.
So a $40 million opening would have to be a little bit of a disappointment. You have to believe they’re hoping for an opening north of $50 million.
It’ll likely depend on those early reviews. If the critics seem to like it, and it gets good word of mouth, then it’ll likely go over the $50 million mark.
If the response is mixed, it could be in some trouble. Men in Black: International will hit theaters June 14, 2019.[mashshare]
