Men In Black International Looks To Open At $40M Opening Weekend

Men in Black is headed back to the big screen in just a few weeks. It’s been around seven years since we saw the good guys dressed in black suit up and take on the extraterrestrial baddies, but it’s a return that Sony has been working on for a good number of years (after passing up an amazing idea to merge the Men in Black with the Jump Street series — BIG mistake, by the way). So how can we expect this thing to perform?

Apparently, the years haven’t been pretty to the franchise’s profitability, as it’s being projected to make $40 million in its opening weekend domestically this coming June 14. This is lower than the $50-million-plus openers each of the other three movies have enjoyed in years past. While it’s important to mention that this movie isn’t launching over a holiday weekend like the others, it’s also worth pointing out that two of those movies came out like 15-20-plus years ago apiece, so…yeah…

This is all in spite of the movie being led by capable stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, who proved their comedic chops and chemistry in Thor: Ragnarok a couple of years back.

At the end of the day, I’m sure it’ll ultimately depend on how good or bad the movie is, so fingers crossed that it’s great.
