'Black Panther' Growls with $65.7-M in 3rd Frame

Dergarabedian said, "Disney wins no matter how you slice it with that film expected to have a strong debut as "Black Panther' continues to draw big crowds". With how it's holding, Black Panther should become just the seventh film in history to break $600 million at the USA box office.

Black Panther also owns the third-best third weekend ever at the domestic box office, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avatar.

Disney/Marvel's Black Panther has continued to dominate the worldwide box office as it is on the verge to cross the $1Billion landmark on a third leading domestic weekend, after amassing an estimated $65.7M.

According to Marvel Studios news, it is expected to make an estimated $66.7 million in its 3rd weekend across USA cinemas, bringing its overall total to $502.1 million. For 2018, the film leads all others with total revenue of $501.1 million, surpassing the half-billion-dollar mark two days faster than Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Black Panther's success is no secret at this point.




Black Panther has now had smaller declines on the second and third weekends than Avengers did in May 2012 and the road ahead continues to look bright.

The movie which was Marvel's first film directed by an African-American has raked in an estimated $192 million in North America alone, this weekend.

The film has already notched several box office feats. We also get the horror sequel THE STRANGERS: PREY AT NIGHT, which could end up surprising everyone because there are now no horror films in the top ten.

Death Wish, a remake of the 1974 revenge thriller, opened to an estimated $13 million from 2,847 locations. Sony ultimately pushed "Passengers" to about $100 million in domestic ticket sales. Both of those films had an advantage: their third weekends were holiday frames. Universal Pictures' erotic series Fifty Shades Freed is in second-place this year with $95.6 million.

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.
