More big bucks for Marvel’s ‘Black Panther’.
Black Panther just snagged a jaw-dropping $65.7 million in its third weekend of domestic release. That’s the third-biggest third weekend of all time, behind only Avatar ($69m in 2010) and Star: The Force Awakens ($90m in 2016).
Like Jurassic World, it needed just 17 days to get to $500 million domestic. That’s just one day slower than The Last Jedi and seven days slower than The Force Awakens.
Comic Book King
Whether or not Black Panther catches up to The Last Jedi’s $619 million domestic total, it has already surpassed The Dark Knight Rises ($448m in 2012) and Avengers: Age of Ultron ($459m in 2015) to become the third-biggest grossing comic book superhero movie in North America. It only sits behind The Dark Knight ($534m in 2008) and The Avengers ($623m in 2012).
