BLACK PANTHER Remains King At #1 For The 4th Weekend In A Row; Roars To A Strong $66.5 Million Debut In China

For the fourth weekend in a row, Marvel and Ryan Coogler's Black Panther, which became the 33rd film to cross the billion-dollar marker yesterday, is the number one film in the world! Come check it out!

Despite a new challenger this weekend, Marvel's Black Panther absolutely could not be stopped yet again as it roared to another $41.1 million, which was more than good enough to secure itself the #1 spot at the domestic box office for the fourth weekend in a row - also, the first film in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe to remain at #1 for four consecutive weeks. Meanwhile, its fellow Disney production, Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle In Time, which received an extremely mixed critical reception and an underwhelming "B" CinemaScore, finished second with approximately $33.3 million.

With over $562 million in the bank from the United States alone, Black Panther has now become the second highest-grossing superhero movie domestically of all-time (not accounting for inflation), behind only Marvel's The Avengers ($623.3M). However, once adjusted for inflation, Black Panther would rank as the fifth-highest grossing superhero movie of all-time domestically behind The Avengers ($705.7M adjusted), The Dark Knight ($683.5M adjusted), Spider-Man ($637.8M adjusted), and Batman ($577.9M adjusted). 

The Ryan Coogler-directed film also had a pretty stellar launch in China where it brought in just over $66.5 million in its first three days of release, making it the largest internatinoal terrority for the film. Its international sum stands well above $516.6 million (not including China) and as of this posting, the film has earned over $1.078 billion worldwide, which makes it the twenty-first highest-grossing film of all-time (not accounting for inflation).

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.
