Marvel’s Black Panther knows the way to smash opening weekend records

Black Panther has clearly become the Thanos of Marvel movies, smashing records and breaking conventional stereotypes about the film industry. Pulling in an estimated $201.8 million over the 3-day weekend, the film now ranks as the fifth highest opening ever and is the second biggest opening for Marvel. (The Avengers pulled in $207.4 million.) Because The Avengers film was an ensemble cast, that would make Black Panther Marvel and the world’s most successful solo superhero film of all time.

It’s estimated that Black Panther will pull in a total of $235 million over the 4-day Presidents Day weekend, making it the biggest February opening of all time and beating out February 2016’s Deadpool opening.

Synopsis: After the death of his father, T’Challa returns home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. 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. 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.
