While it isn't breaking records offshore the same way it is in the U.S., Black Panther is exceeding expectations and has a strong shot at outgrossing a number of Marvel titles, as well as some DC superhero offerings.
These include best February opening weekend ever, biggest non sequel opening weekend, and biggest-grossing movie (in North America) directed by a black filmmaker.
Disney-Marvel's Black Panther is dominating the box office with an astounding $108 million (Sh10 billion) sales at 4,020 North American locations- the second-highest second weekend ever behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The former record holder, Thor, fell 47% while The Avengers fell 50%. Only three other films in history have grossed over $100 million at the box office in its second week: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World ($106.5m) and The Avengers ($103 million). That pushes the film's domestic total to $400 million and a worldwide total of just over $700 million.
