Despite the less-than-stellar reviews from movie critics, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (2023) is now expected to break several new records for the franchise.

Even though most Hollywood critics gave the film a lower-than-expected score, audiences generally have been enjoying Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (2023). The official debut of Marvel’s Phase Five came out swinging and delivered on what director Peyton Reed wanted: an Avengers-level movie that was definitely not the stereotypical pallet cleanse that Ant-Man movies have been traditionally relegated to. The film was full of laughs and heart and had one of the most important mid-credit sequences in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Before it’s box office release, the movie was given a 43% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, making it one of the worst-rated MCU movies to date. The third installment of the Ant-Man trilogy has an 84% audience score, but many reviews confess that Marvel continues to force too much humor into their movies.

Despite the low rating, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has started off the weekend with a bang. The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s latest installment was initially expected to bring in $100 million over the extended President’s Day weekend, is now projected to haul in as much as $120 million in sales this weekend once the final tally is completed. Such a figure would be a big boost for The Walt Disney Company and Marvel Studios and record-breaking for the Ant-Man franchise.
