When you sign Dwayne Johnson to a movie, expect big returns. He has done it time and time again. What made anyone think that Black Adam was going to be any different? When The Rock woke up to the news that he was going to hit number one at the box office for the third week in a row, he had to celebrate.
With a budget of about $200 million, Black Adam‘s box office success has already surpassed that with a whopping $262.9 million total. It brought in $67 million in its first weekend, making it the top box office hit, and it has kept up that pace ever since. Of course, Avengers: Endgame enjoyed an opening weekend of $357 million while Avengers: Infinity War earned $257 million its first weekend. Those movies were released prior to 2020, the year that had a huge impact on everything, let alone the moviegoing experience.
