‘Black Panther‘ smashed almost every record in the book last weekend with its huge $235 million opening. It was a huge moment in movie history, and it’s truly the start of something new.
Black Panther’s second week at the box office was just as impressive as its first. The Marvel flick took home $108 million during its second weekend inside theaters, which is the second-highest second weekend ever behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
In total, the film has earned over $400 million domestically in its first 10 days at the box office. It’s grossed an additional $304 million internationally. It was made on a $200 million budget, so it’s safe to say this movie has already been a huge success for the studio. It could stop making money right now and still be a success.
“‘Black Panther’ continues to elevate the month of February to summer-style blockbuster status with a second weekend that represents only the third time that a film has posted a $100 million plus weekend performance during the month (behind only its $202 million debut and ‘Deadpool’s’ $132 million opening in 2016). And with a North American cume through Sunday of $400 million, it is the highest grossing film ever released in the month after just 10 days in theaters beating the long-standing $370.3 million record held by 2004’s ‘The Passion of The Christ.’”
Yeah, Black Panther just beat Jesus.[mashshare]
