A Quick Breakdown of Black Panther at the Box Office

So Black Panther. This is a film a lot of people are talking about, and with good reason: sitting at a 96% on Rotten Tomatoes (that's 302 critics with positive reviews, 11 without) most people can agree that this is one of the better films in the MCU. Along those lines, it absolutely shattered box office predictions by coming in at $201 million for the 3-day weekend and closing out around $242 million for the four-day President's Day weekend. So with that, Box Office Mojo has looked at all the records this movie has broken and boy, is it a lot. 

*Biggest February Opening Weekend, Biggest Winter Weekend Opening, and Biggest President's Day Weekend gross, knocking out Deadpool for all three. 

*Largest Monday Gross, knocking out Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

*Second Highest Opening for a Comic Book Movie, Second Highest Opening for a Marvel Movie, with The Avengers beating it out.   

*Second Highest 4-Day Gross and Second Highest Sunday Gross, also being beat by Star Wars: The Force Awakens

On top of all that, Black Panther has already earned more in a weekend (domestically) than several Marvel films made in their entire lifespan (also domestically): Ant-ManDoctor Strange, Thor 1 and Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and The Incredible Hulk. With an international gross of over $426 million, you'd better believe that this is getting a sequel.

Let us know if you were in the group of people who saw it last weekend and tell us what you think!
