Wakanda (and box office success) forever! Listen, it’s no surprise Marvel’s Black Panther was going to crush records at the box office, but it is incredible that this film’s box office surpassed estimates.
According to Box Office Mojo, Black Panther made about $201.7 million over the three-day weekend in the U.S. Disney adjusted their numbers for the four-day President’s Day weekend, putting Black Panther over $235 million. Make it rain, T’Challa.
This is the third-highest four-day grossing film, which passes Jurassic World ($234.1 million), Box Office Mojo reports.
The film’s production budget remains unconfirmed, but whatever it was for this film — they’re most definitely making it back and then some.
