Black Widow hit major milestones during the first week in theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access but it has quickly seen a down turn as weeks progressed.

At first theaters blamed the fact that the film was released both on streaming and in the theaters for the flat numbers; however, now it seems like there is another issue as well- pirating.

Black Widow is now the most-pirated movie of the Pandemic Era as they are calling it and has spent two weeks at the top of this not so great chart.

It isn’t surprising that piracy is increasing and Netflix, Amazon, Disney Plus, Hulu, HBO Max, Paramount+, Peacock all seem to be dropping big, exclusive titles that there is some sharing going on between households.

It will be interesting to see if numbers continue to fall for Black Widow overtime.


About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
