Marvel's Second Weekend Drop Was the Biggest Ever. 

The state of affairs involving "The Marvels" has escalated to unprecedentedly dire proportions.  

With an opening weekend of $46.1 million, the newest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe had the lowest opening weekend of any movie in the franchise to date. 

Sadly, word-of-mouth has proven to be remarkably ineffective for the 2019 "Captain Marvel" sequel, 

as the movie completely tanked at the box office during its second weekend, setting a record that no comic book movie wants to hold. 

Director Nia DaCosta's "The Marvels" brought in just $10.2 million domestically in its second weekend, a staggering 78% decrease from its already difficult opening weekend (per The Numbers). 

After Eli Roth's "Thanksgiving" ($10.3 million), "Trolls Band Together" ($30.6 million), 

and "The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes" ($44 million), it came in at number four on the charts. In light of this, 

it didn't help that there was a ton of competition from Taika Waititi's "Next Goal Wins" and all of those other films that opened over the weekend.
