Disney/Marvel Studios’ latest superhero movie, Eternals, is expected to finish atop the Nov. 14 domestic weekend box office with estimated revenue of $27.5 million across more than 4,000 North American screens, its second week on top. The revenue projection tops Paramount Pictures’ live-action family film Clifford the Big Red Dog with $22 million, when including the film’s Wednesday opening.
