ETERNALS Rotten Tomatoes Score Revealed; Leaves It Short Of "Certified Fresh" Status

ETERNALS Rotten Tomatoes Score Revealed; Leaves It Short Of "Certified Fresh" Status

It goes without saying plenty more reviews for Eternals will be counted in the coming weeks, but the movie's initial Rotten Tomatoes score has been revealed, and it's not in "Certified Fresh" territory!

The first reviews for Eternals landed earlier today, and while there are literally hundreds of verdicts yet to be counted, it's a surprisingly lowly start for a Marvel Studios movie on Rotten Tomatoes. With a total of 31 reviews on the aggregator thus far, Chloé Zhao's first blockbuster has a 71% score. 

75% is usually needed to attain "Certified Fresh" status, though it's unlikely that would be awarded this early, regardless. Only two Marvel Cinematic Universe titles don't hold that accolade: Thor: The Dark World (66%) and The Incredible Hulk (67%). As of right now, it's too soon to say where Eternals will end up, but this 71% score is definitely a tad lower than we anticipated. 

For comparison's sake, Black Widow has 79%, while Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings holds a mighty 92%. As of right now, Eternals is roughly on par with Iron Man 2

Once again, it's worth stressing that it's still very early days, and it could be a couple of weeks before we find out where on the Tomatometer the final big screen Phase 4 adventure of 2021 will sit. No "Critics Consensus" has been revealed yet, but we'll be sure to keep you updated on that front.

Eternals will arrive exclusively in theaters on November 5.
