CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Billboard reports:

Ant-Man and the Wasp is proving anything but tiny in its box-office debut. In yet another victory for Disney and Marvel, the latest summer tentpole grossed $33.8 million on Friday from 4,206 theaters for a projected North American debut of $80 million-$83 million. That’s well ahead of the $57.2 million collected by Ant-Man on its first weekend in summer 2015. The sequel nabbed an A- on its CinemaScore, compared to an A for the first film. A record heat wave gripping Los Angeles and other parts of Southern California could benefit films across the board on Saturday. On Friday, seven of the top 10 grossing theaters — led by an AMC multiplex in Burbank — were in California, while Los Angeles was up by 18 percent.
