In a report from Deadline, Eternals brought home more or less $7.6 Million in box office revenues for its first day of international release in 14 different countries. In Korea alone, they got $2.6 Million, as such is one of the biggest markets Marvel has. In France, they bagged $1.6 Million; $700 thousand in Italy, $600 thousand in Taiwan and Germany, and half a million dollars in Hong Kong. $300 thousand was brought home from Sweden.

The Eternals, however, will lose some markets as it has been confirmed to be banned in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Qatar, possibly due to censorship in the inclusion of having a same-sex couple sharing a kiss which is illegal in said countries. It usually puts a ban on LGBTQ films. The film continues to carry itself despite being pulled down by critics who give negative reviews on the movie, mostly for its inclusion of the first-ever openly gay superhero in the MCU.
