'Black Panther' Shows No Sign Of Slowing Down In Its Sophomore Weekend

'Black Panther' Shows No Sign Of Slowing Down In Its Sophomore Weekend

The success of Black Panther is ever on the up-and-up.

Revealing worldwide collection numbers, Deadline reports that Black Panther has surpassed $300 million in the global market with $83.8 million coming from the second-weekend box office collection.

Unsurprisingly, those second-weekend numbers come with their own set of records.

Last week "Black Panther" opened in nearly every market worldwide and everyone went insane, leading to box office records and people to embrace the Wakanda craze.

Opening weekend sales were estimated around $200 million for the US opening weekend.

Despite Black Panther's impressive achievements in its first two weekends, that doesn't mean the movie was a wholly faithful adaptation of the comics. It seems to be just a matter of time before the film surpasses the $1 billion mark. "The Force Awakens" did that faster (in eight days). Hispanics remain unchanged at 18 percent, followed by Asians (7 percent) and Native Americans/Other (5 percent).

Having played the same number of games as each other, Zizou scored 49 goals while Isco has managed 40. "The four in attack played very well".

Starring alongside the likes of Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o and Daniel Kaluuya, Boseman plays the titular superhero also known as T'Challa, king and protector of Wakanda, a technologically advanced, affluent, never-colonised utopia in Africa.

Second place for the weekend went to the Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams comedy Game Night. The movie, facing a strained marketplace for comedies, opened to a solid $17 million from 3,488 locations, earning the No. 2 spot for the weekend.

Paramount's new science fantasy horror "Annihilation" was off to a weak start, debuting in fourth place at only US$11 million.

In the movie's second week, the Ryan Coogler-directed flick racked in a total of $400 million. The much anticipated PG-13 super hero film was expected to be huge, but the results actually flew higher once movie fans had the chance to start coming out. Last week's runner up, Sony's live-action "Peter Rabbit", dropped to No. 3 in its third weekend, earning an additional $12.5 million.

Not only to they have to count the rapidly rising stacks of cash from the box office, but they also have to count the ways the new superhero smash is approaching several box office records.

"Fifty Shades Freed" took fifth place with $6.9 million.
