Black Panther Pulls In Another Strong Weekend With Revenue At $108 Million

Black Panther movie – All you need to know about the Wakanda blockbuster

The superhero film continued to dominate North American box office with an estimated USD108.04 million, becoming the second-highest second weekend of all-time behind "Star Wars: Force Awakens". It's also the second most lucrative second weekend of any movie ever (again, "Force Awakens", which earned $149 million its second weekend, is first). Audiences weren't as thrilled with the sci-fi action film Annihilation as critics, with ticket buyers giving it a C score on Cinemascore while critics judged it to be 87% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. The movie will open in Japan next weekend and in China on March 9th.

The film stars Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa / Black Panther, alongside Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis. Internationally the film opened to an additional $5 million. It's also the highest-grossing February opening weekend.

"Whatever your projections for Black Panther might be, just increase them by 20% and you might be on point", says Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore.

The movie tells the story of T'Challa, king of the technologically advanced nation of Wakanda, and his alter-ego, a super-powered protector called the Black Panther. However, the latest figures suggest that Black Panther could cement itself as the most successful film, not just in Marvel, but in superhero film history. In ninth place was the fantasy-ish film Every Day with $3.1 million, this is the first release for the newly relaunched Orion Pictures.

ZenFone 5Z: the cheapest way to get Snapdragon 845
There's a triple slot housing two SIM cards and one microSD alongside them, and a fingerprint scanner is included on the back. That's probably because it uses the Snapdragon 630 SoC that lacks the required AI-acceleration bits for said functions.

In a very distant second place is the comedy "Game Night" with $16.6 million.

The example often cited is the "Madea" movie franchise from Tyler Perry, which has made more than half a billion dollars across eight releases since 2005 - but with only one percent contributed from overseas markets.

Thanks to "Black Panther", Disney accountants are facing a new challenge - not that they're complaining.
