Black Panther continues to dominate and set records at the box office. The Marvel superhero movie made an estimated $67.5 million at the US 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.
$67.5 million is good for the third best third weekend in history at the domestic box office, only behind the juggernauts Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avatar. It’s a dropoff from last week’s $108 million for its second weekend, but downturns are always expected.
Black Panther has now pulled in $501.1 million in the US and Canada over its first 17 days, and it has been No. 1 at the box office every weekend since its release. The movie now ranks 10th best all time domestically (before inflation), and its $501.1 million is better than every previous Marvel movie to date except for 2012’s The Avengers.
Black Panther is also a hit overseas. This weekend it made an estimated $56.2 million, pushing its haul to $396.6 million. Combined with the more than $500 million it’s made in the US and Canada, Black Panther has now brought in close to $900 million.
