Second weekend for 'Black Panther' is one of the best ever

Already, Black Panther has outperformed the lifetime totals of the three films released by the Marvel Cinematic Universe a year ago: Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnarok with theaters reporting a greater amount of repeat viewings than usual.

Well this past weekend the film did it again, smashing more records and moving T'Challa and company closer to billionaire status. Other films high up on the list include Jurassic World ($106.6 million) and fellow MCU title The Avengers ($103.1 million).

Forbes notes that the film now has a total worldwide haul of $704 million, of which $400 million comes from the United States, so it's on its way to hitting the $1 billion mark (especially given the film has yet to open in Japan and China). It is only the fourth film in history to bring in over $100 million during its second weekend.

Ryan Coogler has co-written "Black Panther" along with Joe Robert Cole.

Interestingly, the film hasn't opened in China yet.

Considering the fact that she had made a comeback to films, the industry and her legion of fans will certainly miss her. But such was her dedication to her craft that she continued to dub for the film albeit with her leg in a plaster cast.

Black Panther has found love among critics too.

The critically acclaimed sci-fi feature from Alex Garland ("Ex Machina") "Annihilation" opened to $11 million.

Imax, which is playing "Black Panther" in more than 60 countries, said people are paying to see the film a couple of times, a quality that the biggest of the big movies share.

Forbes points out that while Black Panther sees no big competition at the box office, in a few weeks the film's run could be hampered in March due to many big releases.

Rounding out the top tier are "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" at No. 6 with $5.7 million, "The 15:17 to Paris" at No. 7 with $3.6 million, "The Greatest Showman" at No. 8 with $3.4 million, "Every Day" at No. 9 with $3.1 million and "Early Man" at No. 10 with $1.7 million. Orion insiders say that's a win, considering the film cost under $5 million to produce. Updated with foreign numbers.
