BLACK PANTHER Sets President’s Day Weekend Record


It’s good to be the king! Marvel’s Black Panther crushed expectations at the box office this weekend. Through three days, the Ryan Coogler-directed film has already logged in over $200 million, which officially dethrones Deadpool as the President’s Day weekend champion.

The King of Wakanda may not stop there, as Deadline reported Disney expects the film to make $235 million through the four-day weekend. It would put the Marvel film over its sibling – The Avengers – and Universal’s Jurassic World. This would also put it at the third-highest four-day total right behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($288M) and Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($241M).

Some folks believe that Black Panther has a shot at cracking the $240 million mark and overtaking The Last Jedi’s spot on the four-day weekend total list. It’s going to need some help, but it has a solid chance of pulling it off after a hot weekend and today being a holiday.

Whether is takes down The Last Jedi or not, Black Panther has already won in terms of box office returns and audience satisfaction. The film has earned an A+ on Cinemascore and raves from critics and audiences alike.

Now’s a good time to announce that sequel, Marvel.
