Since its release in United Kingdom cinemas last week, Marvel Studios' Black Panther has garnered global attention and praise from fans and critics alike. Not surprisingly, the best 4-day opening of all time is a Star Wars vehicle, with Star Wars: The Force Awakens having generated a whopping $288 billion in ticket sales during its first four days in the theater a few years ago. The site also says that it is the new record holder for largest February opening weekend ($202,003,951), the largest winter season opening weekend ($202,003,951), the largest Presidents Day weekend opening and the largest Thursday preview gross in the month of February ($25.2 million) - robbing the previous title holder, "Deadpool", of all four honors. It already has a worldwide total of $462.3 million. Consequently, Black Panther is now the second-highest grossing film of all time when looking at 4-day openings. It's notched an A+ Cinemascore - becoming only the second Marvel film to do so - and is a must-see cultural phenomenon.
And "Black Panther" has hit other high marks as well.
"Black Panther" is heading into its second frame with a strong possibility of becoming the fourth title to top $100 million in a sophomore session domestically. The Force Awakens made 54% in foreign markets.
With a stellar domestic start and a solid global launch so far, it's quite probable that "Black Panther" will join the 32 films with $1 billion in worldwide earnings by the end of its run.
