Marvel's 'Black Panther' On Track To Pass $900 Million Worldwide

Marvel's 'Black Panther' On Track To Pass $900 Million Worldwide

Black Panther has now pulled in $501.1 million in the United States and Canada over its first 17 days, and it has been No. 1 at the box office every weekend since its release.

"Black Panther" is the second highest grossing Marvel movie of all time at the domestic box office, leaving "Avengers: Age of Ultron" in its trail at $459 million and aiming to catch up with "The Avengers" ($623.4 million). In its third weekend, the film has grossed $56.2 million in most worldwide markets.

Another new release, "Death Wish", MGM's reboot of the Charles Bronson action franchise starring Bruce Willis, was third with $13 million.

In other box office news, Hollywood's awards season came to a close on Sunday with mixed results.

Holdovers complete the top five, as WB/New Line's "Game Night" has gained some good word of mouth to help it post $10.7 million in its second weekend, just a 37 percent drop from its $17 million opening.

The ticket for Wednesdays drawing matched four of the five white balls drawn, 12-30-59-65-69, and the red Powerball 16. Nobody has won the Powerball jackpot since a $559.7 million winning ticket was sold in New Hampshire on January 6.

Like the film, Jurassic World, it demanded only 17 days to receive a $500 million domestic, which will be one day gradual than The Last Jedi and seven days slower than The Force Awakens. Globally, too, Black Panther is mauling the competition.

As reported by Deadline, Black Panther earned an incredible $65.7 million in its third weekend in North America.

Peter Rabbit adds another $10 million, off just 22%, and now has $84 million in four weekends. The 20th Century Fox release was probably hoping for at least $20 million here, so it's a slight disappointment. Next week, another Disney movie, "A Wrinkle in Time", is predicted to take over the throne from "Black Panther".

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and The Greatest Showman both remain in the top ten during their eleventh weeks of release. Jumanji is approaching $400 million domestically while Showman is closing in on $165 million domestically. Trending slightly better than Darker (had Freed followed the same path, it would have finished with about what it has earned now) Fifty Shades Freed will wheeze over the $100 million mark before it's done, but that's about it. The movie, starring Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, and Lupita N'Yongo, has officially become the 10th highest-grossing film of all time in the United States.
