Black Panther Continues Its Worldwide Dominance

Double Take: Marvel/Disney's 'Black Panther'

Black Panther is hence the hugest third-weekend aggregate for a movie that didn't have any weekend hike.

"Black Panther" will also become one of the top-grossing movies of all time, on a non-inflation adjusted basis.

Black Panther starring Chadwick Boseman, dominated domestic moviegoing in its third weekend with US$65.7 million at 4,084 locations - the third-highest weekend of all time after Star Wars: The Force Awakens at US$90.2 million and Avatar at US$68.5 million.

The fact that Jennifer Lawrence's RED SPARROW couldn't crack $20 million at the weekend box office is not so much an indictment of the film or her star power, but more of a testament to the staying power of Marvel's BLACK PANTHER. This weekend pushed "Black Panther" past the $501M mark domestically, just three-weeks after the film's debut.

According to Marvel Studios news, it is expected to make an estimated $66.7 million in its 3rd weekend across U.S. cinemas, bringing its overall total to $502.1 million.

This weekend, your top 12 films earned $136.9 million, compared to last year's $200 million, led by Logan's $88.4 million opening weekend.

Worldwide markets are also rocking for Panther with this weekend contributing an estimated $56.2M pushing the overseas cume to $396.6M and the global haul to $897.7M. This brings the total global box office to $396.6 million. In fact, seven of the top eleven blockbusters are from the Mouse House which is already planning out its box office dominance over the years ahead with an impressive calendar of titles it just announced leading into 2023. According to data from comScore, the previous Oscar weekend record was $40 million in 2010, held by Disney's "Alice in Wonderland" remake. Final three-day domestic figures will be released Monday. The other new film of the weekend didn't fare quite as well. Both of those films had an advantage: their third weekends were holiday frames.

"Death Wish" follows in the trend of macho action films like "American Assassin" and "Den of Thieves", which are made relatively cheap for $25-40 million and are able to produce a solid return for their studios. But none of these prestige-minded movies was widely embraced by mainstream ticket buyers - as when the 2011 best picture nominee "Black Swan" collected about $120 million, after adjusting for inflation; or Mr. Spielberg's "Lincoln" reached almost $200 million in 2013.
