The Black Widow

At birth the Black Widow (aka Natasha Romanova) is given to the KGB, which grooms her to become its ultimate operative. When the U.S.S.R. breaks up, the government tries to kill her as the action moves to present-day New York, where she is now a freelance operative.

Note: Film Rentals is the amount received by Distributors from Theaters/Exhibitors. A film's profitability may be assessed when estimated world film rentals approach/equal/exceed estimated production cost. DVD, Television, Digital and Ancillary revenues are then added and production, marketing and other costs deducted (Cost variables may affect this calculation).

Approximately one half of the films released each year in the U.S. avoid the considerable marketing costs of a wide release in theaters and go directly to digital and other media often taking them into profit. A substantial number are made for and streamed by Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Disney, Apple, Peacock, HBO and similar platforms.
