Black Panther Is Ruling The Indian Box Office This Week

Marvel Studios

In addition to breaking box office records (like the most successful film by a Black director), the movie has earned a wealth of critical acclaim. I will say that if you're someone who's dismissing Black Panther because you're just not into superhero movies, I'd advise you to reconsider.

I am yet to see the film, but from seeing and reading everything that is going around the interwebs it sounds like a fantastic time at the theater, which I will hopefully make a trip to this weekend. It beats all of Marvel's solo debuts and team outings, except 2012's The Avengers.

Still, Black Panther's record Tuesday beats the record-holder for pre-summer, Beauty and the Beast a year ago with $17.8 million, and also beats the record holder in the Marvel Universe, The Avengers, at $17 million.

According to Marvel, the King of Wakanda will go in a "bold new direction" this May, starting in Black Panther #1.

And that's just it. Black Panther feels more like a pent-up cultural movement than your average installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With each passing today, new reports arrive of critical and financial milestones for the latest Marvel movie, suggesting that T'Challa and director Ryan Coogler will remain a key part of the MCU moving forward.




"Black Panther" is set in the mythical kingdom of Wakanda, which is rich with the miracle metal vibranium and is the most technologically advanced nation on the planet. All facts and figures considered, Black Panther soared to earn enough money to become the second-best four-day showing in US history.

Black Panther had North American box office of $202 million over the three-day and $242 million for the four-day weekend.

"Never in a million years did we imagine that you all would come out this strong", he said.

In either case, the top three movie openings belong to Disney dropping Universal Pictures' Jurassic World in fourth place.
