Black Panther is continuing to do crazy numbers.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Disney and Marvel Studios film is setting second-weekend records where it is slated to produce more than $100 million.

BP already outdid The Avengers in its first week reporting upwards of $292 million through Thursday (February 22). It earned $28.9 million on Friday and if it meets estimates of $105 million by the end of Sunday, it will score as the third-best weekend of all-time behind Star Wars: Force Awakens ($149.2 million) and Jurassic World ($106.6 million).

So far, Black Panther has grossed $400 million in America and over $600 million globally.

During its opening weekend, Black Panther became the fifth-biggest Friday through Sunday opening weekend of all time, trailing The Avengers, Jurassic World, The Last Jedi and The Force Awakens.


Oh yeah, it’s also been reported that a Wakanda sequel could be in the works. Find out more about that here.
