Advance ticket purchases for Marvel’s highly anticipated Eternals (2021), have already surpassed sales for previous Phase Four films Black Widow (2021) and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021).
Eternals is finally set to premiere on November 5, 2021 (earlier in certain areas), and the box office is expected to be booming with fans rushing to see the latest film in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In typical Marvel fashion, ticket sales for the upcoming film are already past the million dollar mark. Eternals has already grossed over $2.6 million within the first 24 hours of advanced ticket sales.
Comparatively, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings brought in $1.4 million and Black Widow brought in $2 million. Black Widow had a rocky release but was still able to obtain an $80 million opening weekend. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings shattered records with $75.6 million for the biggest Labor Day weekend opening of all time.
The Eternals have been a beloved part of Marvel Comics for years, and fans were very excited to see that the characters were going to be getting their own film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to Marvel, this film is star-studded and sure to leave viewers wanting more (with possibly a nice Easter egg in a post-credit scene?).
