“Black Panther” still remains unchallenged in the box office its second weekend.
The Marvel superhero movie was number one in the U.S. for the second weekend in a row hauling in an approximated $108 million at the box office.
“Black Panther” joined the likes of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Jurassic World,” and “The Avengers,”to become the fourth film ever to cross $100 million in its second weekend.
It is the second highest second weekend for a movie behind only “The Force Awakens.”
“Black Panther” has also passed the $700 million mark globally in just two weekends of release and is set to cross $400 million domestically on its 10th day of release – Sunday. The film has yet to open in China or Japan.
After its second weekend domestically, the film, starring Chadwick Boseman and directed by Ryan Coogler, is now the fifth highest grossing Marvel Studios film and will likely surpass “Captain America: Civil War” and “Iron Man 3” to clinch the number three spot in the coming days.
The movie currently has an almost perfect 97% score on review site Rotten Tomatoes, which makes it one of the best-reviewed superhero films ever.
