‘Black Panther’ Box Office: Records And Milestones From Its First Two Months
April 16, 2018 - box office
This will substantially be a final of these weekly “Here are all a new milestones Walt Disney and Marvel’s Black Panther has set” posts, mostly since it is radically finished environment new records. It competence pass The Last Jedi on a tellurian all-time grossers list, it competence get as high as 30th place on a inflation-adjusted domestic list (ahead of The Dark Knight and Thunderball, natch) and it competence get a small aloft on a list of leggy $100 million+ openers. But otherwise, Black Panther is presumably finished environment annals for a moment. So, with that in mind, we went by all my weekly “new records” posts and, well, if we wish a hulk list of (mostly domestic) annals that a film pennyless or roughly broke, abridged (but still a longest post of a day) for one easy and available list of a film’s initial dual months of melodramatic release, here we go. we can’t guarantee we held any singular one, though it’s flattering damn tighten to complete.

5th-biggest opening weekend of all time:
With a $202 million Fri-Sun frame, it sits behind only The Avengers ($207m), Jurassic World ($208m), Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($220m) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($248m). If we adjust for inflation, Black Panther will finish adult in seventh place behind only The Dark Knight ($202.3m adjusted), Avengers: Age of Ultron ($203.9m), The Last Jedi ($220m), Jurassic World ($232m), The Avengers ($234m) and The Force Awakens ($261m).
Biggest non-sequel opening weekend:
Black Panther (an roughly wholly stand-alone film existent in a MCU universe) pennyless a opening weekend record for a non-sequel/prequel, displacing The Hunger Games which non-stop with $152 million in Mar of 2012 (in 2D).
Biggest solo superhero launch of all time:
Since it non-stop above a $174 million opening weekend of Iron Man 3, Black Panther has a new miracle for a solo superhero Fri-Sun debut.
Biggest Feb opening weekend:
The prior high-water symbol for a Feb opening weekend was Deadpool with $132 million over a Fri-Sun support and $152m over a Fri-Mon Presidents Day weekend. While Black Panther lacked a Valentine’s Day advantage (Feb. 14 fell on a Saturday that year), it played in 3D and had a PG-13 rating. It warranted around 52% some-more than Deadpool and 148% some-more than Fifty Shades of Grey (which also had a Valentine’s Day Saturday advantage).
Biggest Fri-Sun opening weekend for a prolonged holiday debut:
This is another one it swiped from Deadpool, as a MCU crack has now warranted some-more income in a Fri-Sun support than any film ever that had an additional day before or after a required Fri-Sun opening weekend. It goes though observant that a Fri-Sun figure competence have been even bigger though Presidents Day shower adult some of a demand, though c’est la vie.
Biggest prolonged holiday opening weekend:
In terms of all “long weekend openings,” be they 4 days or 6 days, Black Panther’s $242 million four-day launch is forward of a $200 million Wed-Sun entrance of Paramount/Viacom Inc.’s Transformers: Revenge of a Fallen and a $180 million six-day Independence Day weekend openings for Transformers: Dark of a Moon and Spider-Man 2 (the latter in 2D approach behind in 2004).
Biggest opening weekend ever for any film not destined by a white guy:
Black Panther’s boffo opening is a biggest opening ever for any film not helmed by a white guy, displacing James Wan’s Furious 7 (which warranted $1.5 billion worldwide from a $147m domestic entrance despite/because of a different cast). Although I’m certain they are all rooting for any other, I’d like to consider that Wan or Patty Jenkins is sitting in a pivot chair right now petting an (evil) cat and plotting his or her revenge.
Biggest pre-summer opening weekend:
Black Panther easily dethroned Batman v Superman ($166 million) as a biggest pre-summer opener of all time.
2nd-Biggest comic book superhero opening weekend:
Among all comic book superhero film opening weekends, a Fri-Sun support stands behind only The Avengers ($207 million).
2nd-biggest four-day gross:
With at slightest $242 million in 4 days, it sits right between The Last Jedi ($241m) and The Force Awakens ($288m) among a biggest four-day totals.
3rd-biggest non-summer opening weekend:
Of a 4 biggest entrance weekends, usually dual of them (The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi) non-stop outward of a core summer season.
8th-biggest Friday and 8th-biggest single-day gross:
Among single-day grosses, Friday grosses and opening day grosses, Black Panther’s $75.8 million Friday sits behind only The Avengers ($80.8m), Batman v Superman ($81.5m), Jurassic World ($81.9m), Avengers: Age of Ultron ($91m), Harry Potter and a Deathly Hallows partial II ($91m), The Last Jedi ($104.6m) and The Force Awakens ($119.1m).
4th-biggest Saturday gross:
After a boffo opening day, Black Panther earned $65.8 million on Saturday. That was a small 13% dump from opening day or a 31% burst if we take out a Thursday previews. It’s also a 24th-biggest single-day sum of all time and a fourth-biggest Saturday figure, between Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($63m) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($68.2m), The Avengers ($69.5m) and Jurassic World ($69.4m). If we count inflation, it’s still in eighth place.
2nd-biggest Sunday gross:
Panther’s $60.096 million initial Sunday sum is down usually -8% from a initial Saturday and $9.5m some-more than a “pure” $50.6m Friday gross. It is a 33rd-biggest single-day gross. But it’s also a second-biggest Sunday sum of all time, behind only Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($60.5m).
Biggest Monday gross:
Black Panther has warranted $40.167 million on a fourth day of release. That is a 99th-biggest single-day sum of all time. That also give a film a biggest Monday sum of all time, forward of even The Force Awakens‘ $40.1m fourth-day gross. Even if we comment for inflation, it’s a third-biggest Monday behind The Force Awakens ($42m adjusted) and Spider-Man 2 ($40.8m adjusted).
And that’s usually a milestones it set in a initial 4 days of domestic release. We can now pierce into a second weekend, where it snagged a whole garland of new annals and milestones.
2nd-biggest non-opening weekend:
Black Panther warranted $111.6 million in a second Fri-Sun frame. That’s a second-biggest non-opening weekend of all time, between Jurassic World ($106m) and The Force Awakens ($149m).
Smallest 2nd-weekend dump for a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie:
Sure, Black Panther had a somewhat incomparable second-weekend dump than Blade (-36%), Spider-Man (-37%) and Wonder Woman (-43%), though that’s radically it when it comes to second-weekend binds for big-scale comic book flicks that non-stop on a Friday.
2nd-best 2nd-weekend reason for a $200 million+ opener:
Of a 5 $200 million+ openers (Black Panther, The Avengers, Jurassic World, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens), only The Force Awakens and Black Panther avoided a “$100m losers club.” Only The Force Awakens (which had Christmas Day as a second Friday and fell 39%) had a improved reason among a really biggest of large openers.
2nd-biggest non-opening Saturday gross:
Black Panther earned $47.6 million on a second Saturday, a 65% burst from a second Friday and a small 27% dump from a initial $65m-grossing Saturday. That’s also a second-biggest non-opening Saturday ever, behind only The Force Awakens’ $57.6m day-nine gross.
4th-fastest to $300 million in North America:
Black Panther crossed a $300 million symbol on a eighth day of release, a same series of days that it took Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Jurassic World to do likewise. Its eight-day sum ($320m) put it usually below The Last Jedi ($321m) and Jurassic World ($325m) while only Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($325m in 5 days) did it faster.
2nd-fastest to $350 million in North America:
Black Panther ended a ninth day of domestic recover with $368.4 million. Only Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($363m in 6 days) did it faster.
2nd-fastest to $400 million domestic:

2nd-biggest ten-day total:
Black Panther warranted $404 million in 10 days of North American release, behind only The Force Awakens ($540m) among ten-day totals.
6th-biggest Friday that wasn’t partial of an opening weekend:
Black Panther earned $28.8 million on a second Friday, that was a 15th-biggest non-opening day Friday sum of all time. But many of a 14 bigger “non-opening day” Friday grosses were for cinema that non-stop on a Wednesday or Thursday. Black Panther actually snagged a sixth-biggest “non-opening” far-reaching recover Friday sum of all time.
And now we get into a third weekend of release…
3rd-biggest third weekend gross:
Black Panther’s $66,3 million third-weekend sum was a third-biggest such Fri-Sun frame, behind Avatar ($68m in 2010) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($90m in 2016).
Biggest 3rd-weekend sum for a non-holiday weekend:
Since both Avatar and Star Wars: The Force Awakens benefited from New Year’s Day descending on their third particular Fridays (and a ubiquitous boost afforded to Christmas deteriorate releases), Black Panther technically has a biggest third-weekend sum that wasn’t partial of a holiday.
5th-biggest “day 15” Friday gross:
In a area of third-Friday grosses, Black Panther’s $16.3 million gain puts it in fifth place among a “day 15” singular day grosses, behind usually a final three Star Wars movies ($18m for Rogue One, $19m for The Last Jedi and $34m for The Force Awakens) and Avatar ($25.2m in 2010).
2nd-biggest “day 16” Saturday gross:

2nd-biggest “day 17” Sunday gross:

And now we get into a fourth weekend and beyond…
3rd-Biggest 4th weekend:

Black Panther earned another $16.7 million in a sixth weekend. Its sixth Fri-Sun support sits behind only Frozen ($19.575m in a sixth weekend of far-reaching recover in 2014), Titanic ($25.2m in 1998) and Avatar ($34.9m in 2010).
7th-biggest 7th weekend:
With $11.263 million in a seventh weekend of domestic release, the Ryan Coogler-directed MCU crack snagged a seventh-biggest sum for a seventh weekend of release, behind only Mrs. Doubtfire ($11.5m in 1994), The Blind Side ($11.9m in 2010), Frozen ($14.7m in 2014), The Passion of a Christ ($15.2m on Easter weekend of 2004), Titanic ($25.9m in 1998) and Avatar ($31.2m in 2010). Of note, it scored a tenth-biggest weekend-eight sum ($8.7m) and the… uh… 30th-biggest weekend 9 sum ($5.3m) of all time.
And now we get into long-term records, some of that competence be bested in a matter of weeks and some of that competence sojourn for a really prolonged time.
1st film to tip a weekend box bureau 5 times in a quarrel since Avatar:
By commanding a charts in a fifth weekend, it became a initial film to do so since Avatar eight years ago. Heck, it’s usually a fourth film to lift this off in 20 years, alongside Paramount/Viacom Inc.’s Titanic in 1997/1998, Disney’s The Sixth Sense in 1999 and 20th Century Fox’s Avatar in 2009/2010. Universal’s Pacific Rim: Uprising opened good adequate during Black Panther’s sixth weekend to arbitrarily take a tip spot, so turn the Lost in Space of this generation.
13th-leggiest $100 million+ opener of all time:
With $674 million so far, Black Panther has warranted 3.33x a $202m entrance weekend. Of note, 3 of a 12 leggier $100 million+ openers (Transformers 2, Star Wars 3 and Shrek 2) non-stop on a Wednesday or a Thursday.
3rd-fastest grossing film of all time:
At a moment, Black Panther is a second-fastest earner of all time, between Avatar ($666 million during a finish of a ninth weekend) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($916m during a finish of weekend nine). But by subsequent weekend, Avatar will have held adult to Black Panther, so creation a T’Challa epic a third-fastest grosser of all time. As always, your pierce Teen Titans GO to a Movies!
2nd-leggiest MCU movie of all time:
With a $674 million domestic sum stemming from a $202m Fri-Mon entrance weekend, Black Panther now sits with a 3.33x weekend-to-cume multiplier. That puts it behind only Guardians of a Galaxy ($333m/$94m = 3.55x) as a second-leggiest MCU crack ever.
10th-biggest tellurian grosser of all time:
Currently, Black Panther has warranted $1.313 billion worldwide, putting it in tenth place on a all-time draft right between Frozen ($1.277b in 2013/2014) and Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($1.33b). It competence locate adult with Star Wars, though it’s going to be a tighten one.
3rd-biggest IMAX/3D film of all time:
Black Panther is a third-biggest (unadjusted) domestic grosser ever to play (for many of a run) in IMAX and 3D auditoriums, to contend 0 of a several PLF options that have popped adult in a final several years, behind usually Avatar and The Force Awakens.
33rd-biggest grosser of all time (adjusted for inflation):
Its stream domestic total, $674 million, is right next Sleeping Beauty ($677m) on a list of adjusted-for-inflation domestic earners. If it gets to $687m, it’ll be 30th usually between The Dark Knight ($684m) and Thunderball ($686m) and The Avengers ($705m adjusted).
3rd-biggest (unadjusted) grosser of all time:
The stream domestic cume, $674 million, puts it between Titanic ($659m, counting reissues) and Avatar ($760m in 2009/2010) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($937m in 2015/2016). Black Panther has done some-more income in a singular calendar year than any other flick. we don’t consider anything else out there (other than maybe Star Wars 9 or Avatar 2) has a picturesque shot during swiping Black Panther’s bronze medal. Yeah, we guess Avengers: Infinity War could radically sell as many tickets as The Avengers ($623 million in 2012/$706m adjusted), though it radically contingency to compare Black Panther.
Biggest-grossing film from a black director:
To be fair, Fate of a Furious went out sans 3D in most of a world, though F. Gary Gray’s supplement to James Wan’s Furious 7 has been surpassed in a tellurian record books. I’m certain there is 0 bad blood between Coogler and Gray, but Black Panther passed a $1.236 billion tellurian sum of Fate of a Furious to turn a biggest film ever from a black filmmaker.
Biggest comic book superhero film ever (in North America):
Ryan Coogler’s superhero movement play outgrossed The Avengers ($623 million in 2012) to turn a de-facto champion among all comic book superhero cinema in unadjusted domestic grosses. Now if we wish to comment for inflation, it’s still behind The Dark Knight ($534m in 2008/$684m adjusted) and The Avengers ($623m/$706m adjusted).
Biggest solo superhero film ever (worldwide):
By leading a unadjusted $1.215 billion worldwide sum of Iron Man 3, Black Panther is a third-biggest comic book superhero film of all time. It sits behind only Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.4b) and The Avengers ($1.5b). Since those are apparently garb flicks, that creates Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa into Earth’s Mightiest Hero.
