Earlier this month, Marvel Studios “Eternals” was added to Disney+ and according to a report from Samba TV , the film was streamed by 2 million households during its first five days on Disney+.
This puts “Eternals” on par with the last big release on Disney+, “Encanto”, which was also watched by 2 million US households in the first five days. It also makes “Eternals” the most-watched new Marvel film on Disney+, beating “Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Rings”, which was watched by 1.8 million US households. By comparison, “Black Widow” was watched by 1.1 million US homes, though it had previously been available on Disney+ Premier Access.
Marvel Studios’ “Eternals” welcomes an exciting new team of Super Heroes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The epic story, spanning thousands of years, follows a group of immortal heroes from beyond the stars who have protected humanity since the dawn of time. When mankind’s oldest enemy, The Deviants, mysteriously return, the Eternals are forced out of the shadows and must reunite to defend Earth’s inhabitants once again.
“Eternals” was released in cinemas in November, but since many people didn’t go due to the pandemic, this might have led to higher numbers of households watching the film.
