Black Panther brings in $108 million shattering second weekend record

Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but Black Panther is obliterating box office records. The Marvel Studios film set another one for the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a $108 million second weekend.

That takes the film to an incredible $400 million domestic tally. After only 10 days, Black Panther is the 29th highest grossing movie of all-time. It’s already eclipsed the total of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ($389.8 million).

It’s just $59 million behind Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is No.13 on the all-time list. By this time next week, Black Panther will crack the Top 10. Now it’s a matter of it will will pass Marvel’s The Avengers ($623 million) for the No. 5 spot.

Black Panther beat Avengers’ MCU second weekend record of $103 million. Star Wars: The Last Jedi has the best second weekend with $149 million, but Black Panther is far and outpacing The Last Jedi, which only had $368 million by the 10-day mark. It’s path to a Top 10 all-time finish is all but assured now.

The film isn’t leaving much room for anything else at the box office despite a slew of newcomers.

Game Night fates the best with a modest $16.6 million in its opening weekend. Peter Rabbit gathered $12.5 million to take its tally to $71 million in its third week for the third slot.

Annihilation had a low turnout with $11 million. With a $40 million budget, the film will make a profit, but this seems a case where a potentially profitable film suffered from the misfortune of getting caught in the wave of a massive event film.

Fifty Shades Freed took the fifth spot with $7 million to take its total to $89.5 million in three weeks.
