I'll probably see it this week, but I don't think Ant-Man and the Wasp comes off as a "must see" Marvel movie.
With a production budget around US$162 million, Ant-Man and the Wasp looks like another win for Marvel. There is now no planned China release for Ant-Man and the Wasp, likely due to the annual Chinese "blackout" of non-Chinese films that happens between late June and early September.
Ant-Man and the Wasp received a "A-"CinemaScore from opening weekend audiences, just a notch down from the "A" for Ant-Man, and 55% of the overall audience was male while 58% of the overall audience was over the age of 25". It's also the lowest opening for a Marvel Studios sequel, but that's not necessarily a bad thing since the original opened to $57.2 million back in 2015.
Praise seems to be strong for Ant-Man and the Wasp, which holds a promising 86 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes. The studio has had a string of box office hits in 2018 with "Avengers: Infinity War" racking up over $2 billion and counting, and "Black Panther" passing $1.3 billion globally. The MCU sequel debuted with $20.9 million in South Korea, a 78% leap from the original that almost eclipsed the $21.2 million the original earned in its entire theatrical run there.
Ant-Man And The Wasp made $76 million domestically this weekend beating the previous Ant-Man movie by $20 million. Everyone's favorite crime-fighting family has crossed the $500 million mark domestically and $700 million worldwide.

At the specialty box office, Roadside Attractions and Miramax's "Whitney" bowed with $1.3 million from 452 locations.
While that figure is below what was originally estimated, worldwide markets reported healthy numbers with the biggest debut being Korea with $20.9 million, followed by Mexico with $6.7 million, and Indonesia with $5.6 million. Sorry to Bother You also opened this weekend and earned over $717 thousand, giving it the 16th spot.
"Incredibles 2" opened in France with $9.9 million, marking the second highest opening for a Pixar release behind "Finding Nemo".
