BLACK PANTHER Now Tracking For An Unbelievable $165 Million+ Opening Weekend

Following predictions in the $125M-$150 million range, the most recent tracking data is now estimating that Marvel's Black Panther could open to a massive $165 million+ this Presidents' Day weekend!

The earliest tracking data from last month forecasted a $125 million opening weekend for Marvel's Black Panther, which would have been the second-highest February opening of all-time. Then, last week, we learned that estimates had skyrocketed to the $150 million range, potentially making the Ryan Coogler-directed film the biggest February opener of all-time, topping the R-Rated Deadpool.

Now, The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the early tracking data has jumped once again and the Chadwick Boseman-starrer may now actually open to $165 million or more this Presidents Day weekend, making it the highest grossing February opener of all-time and the fifth-highest opener in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. It would also become the biggest-opening weekend for a superhero origin movie ever (not accounting for inflation) and the sixth-biggest opening weekend for a superhero movie ever (not accounting for inflation).

The film has received widespread critical acclaim and is currently boasting a 97% "Certified Fresh" rating on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes as well as an exceptional "Metascore" of 87 on fellow aggregator Metacritic.

Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
