The Flash wins its opening weekend at the box office

After nearly four decades in development, The Flash has finally made its way to the big screen.

As the opening weekend of The Flash draws to a close, the box office estimates have rolled in. Domestically the film took in $55.1 million over the three-day weekend. Thanks to the Juneteenth holiday on Monday, the estimates for the four-day total are $64 million.
For comparison, Black Adam opened to $67 million over three days, while Aquaman opened with $67.87 million in the same time frame. The former went on to a domestic total of $168.15 million, while the latter took in $335.06 million.

In the foreign markets, The Flash took in $75 million. This brings the global opening weekend total to $139 million.

Using the same comps as before, Black Adam took in $223.1 million from the foreign markets over the course of its run for a total of $391.26 million. Aquaman did very well in the foreign markets and took in $808.69 million for a global total of $1.143 billion.

Something that is very much going to work in the film’s favor is it has no real competition in its second weekend. Its third weekend will see Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny opening, and it will more than likely lose the top spot at that time.

The Flash is now in wide theatrical release.
