Ant-Man, the first feature film produced at Fayetteville’s Pinewood Atlanta Studios, made its anticipated debut in theaters Friday. The movie claimed top of the weekend box office with a $58 million opening. At the global box office, it’s already raked in $114 million. Not bad for an obscure superhero. It was enough to give Marvel Studios its 12th straight first place debut and a great start for Fayetteville as a blockbuster home.
