Black Panther Tops Box Office; Near A Billion

Black Panther in costume

"Black Panther" is the second highest grossing Marvel movie of all time at the domestic box office, leaving "Avengers: Age of Ultron" in its trail at $459 million and aiming to catch up with "The Avengers" ($623.4 million). According to data from comScore, the previous Oscar weekend record was $40 million in 2010, held by Disney's "Alice in Wonderland" remake.

"Black Panther" still maintains its reign at the North American box office in its third week.

The film is sure to eclipse the ninth spot on the list, 2017′s Beauty and the Beast, which made $504m domestically.

Globally, "Black Panther" has made $56.2 million this weekend for a worldwide haul of $121 million and a global running total of $897.7 million. The latest cume brings the movie's domestic revenue to cross the $500 million mark domestically and its worldwide gross to almost $900 million.

From Fox and Chernin Entertainment, Red Sparrow beat Death Wish with an estimated $17 million from 3,056 theaters to place 2nd. With a $69 million budget, this Jennifer Lawrence spy thriller will need help from overseas to turn a solid profit. Oh, and worldwide grosses are lagging presently, as the worldwide total is a touch under $900 million. For now though, Marvel should be happy with the critical and commercial success of the film.

Bruce Willis starrer Death Wish came in third with just over $13 million. "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" reached $52 million domestically through Sunday, and "The Shape of Water" passed $57 million.

Both films earned a B+ CinemaScore from audiences.

Peter Rabbit adds another $10 million, off just 22%, and now has $84 million in four weekends.

Paramount's second weekend of Annihilation finished in sixth with US$5.7 million at 2,112 venues, followed by Sony's 11th weekend of its sturdy action comedy Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle with US$4.5 million at 2,313 sites. It earned $4.5 million (again down just 20%) and creeps closer to $400 million with $393.2 million.
