Already a much-celebrated pop-culture milestone, Black Panther is now a record-setting smash at the box office, too.
The Marvel superhero film blew past expectations, with $192m in ticket sales in North America over the weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. That makes Black Panther the fifth-biggest opening weekend ever, not accounting for inflation.
The only films with a higher grossing opening weekend are Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Jurassic World and The Avengers. It’s also the highest-grossing February opening weekend.
The blockbuster launched in UK and Irish cinemas on Tuesday February 13, grossing £2.67 million on its opening day.
This result sees Black Panther crowned with the highest grossing single day at the UK box office in 2018.
Black Panther has also been a hit on Rotten Tomatoes, with a 98% fresh rating.
