There's no stopping Marvel's Black Panther as it continues its astonishing run with a $65.7 million domestic gross in its third weekend. The Marvel superhero movie made an estimated $67.5 million at the USA and Canadian box office this weekend, putting it firmly ahead of newcomers like Jennifer Lawrence's Red Sparrow and the new Bruce Willis movie Death Wish.
Third goes to our other new release this weekend, the reboot of Death Wish, starring Bruce Willis.
Black Panther now has a domestic box office haul of over $500 million: $501,105,037. The film has just passed $20 million domestically. The film has made $26.5 million internationally for a $43.5 million global start.
Come what may, Black Panther is already a marvelous breaking success. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is the eighteenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Starring Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o and Angela Bassett in lead roles, Black Panther is now playing in theaters.
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at US and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Final three-day domestic figures will be released Monday. He said having an inclusive cast for the movie also brings in new customers. Steven Spielberg's newspaper drama "The Post" (Twentieth Century Fox) did the best, collecting about $80 million. 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 film brought in $17 million which was right around what was projected.
By art house standards, all were quite successful. Females made up the majority of ticket buyers (53), while almost 80% of the audience was over the age of 25.
