For its second weekend, Black Panther brought in an estimated $108 million, which gives it the second best box office for the second week of opening (#1 is Star Wars: The Force Awakens at $149m). When adjusted for inflation, the film is behind only The Dark Knight, The Avengers, Jurassic World, and The Force Awakens among ten-day-totals. Black Panther has also earned over $700 million (£501.2 million) worldwide.
I believe Black Panther will remain box office champion for a third straight week as it does face some competition including Jennifer Lawrence's new thriller Red Sparrow.
Another accomplishment: Black Panther is already the top-grossing February opener of all time domestically - Deadpool was the previous best with $363.1 million - and is on the verge of becoming the No. 3 MCU title of all time in the US once it passes Captain America: Civil War ($408 million) and Iron Man 3 ($409 million) in the next several days.
"Black Panther" is still wearing the box office crown in its second weekend.
Sony's animated adventure comedy film "Peter Rabbit" landed in third place with an estimated United States dollars 12.54 million in its third weekend, pushing its North American cume to USD 71.29 million through Sunday. It became the largest opening for an African-American director by sizable margin. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T'Challa's mettle as king - and as Black Panther - gets tested when he's drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. The film stars Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams as a couple who sees their weekly game night taken over by a murder mystery that might be more fact than it is playful fiction.
