“Eternals.” Marvel Studios

  • “Eternals” received a B grade from CinemaScore, a company that surveys audiences on opening night.

  • It’s the worst CinemaScore grade for a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie.

  • Only one other MCU movie has received a grade below an A-.

Marvel’s latest movie, “Eternals,” opened over the weekend with $71 million.

That was in line with analyst projections and the fourth biggest domestic debut of the pandemic, but still an underwhelming result for a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie.

“Eternals” received the worst CinemaScore grade of any MCU film with a B. The movie-grading company CinemaScore surveys audiences at theaters across the US on a movie’s opening night.

It’s also the worst reviewed movie of the MCU with a 48% Rotten Tomatoes critic score.

A B grade is disappointing by Marvel standards. Only one other MCU movie has received a grade less than an A-: 2011’s “Thor.”

Below is how audiences graded all 26 MCU films, according to CinemaScore:
