Box-Office Weekend: Black Panther Crosses $600 Million

Kendrick Lamar All The Stars

According to Deadline, Black Panther is looking at delivering a profit in the region of $460 million to Marvel Studios, which puts it ahead of Avengers: Age of Ultron ($382.3 million) and Captain America: Civil War ($193.4 million), both of which have heavy participation and back-end deals for its cast.

The Marvel film remained number one at the box office for the fifth straight week. It's a big milestone for Sony Pictures as it is only the studio's second film ever to accomplish the feat, along with 2002's Spider-Man. It is now only one of seven films to have made that much money at the North American box office, with Star Wars: The Last Jedi also having recently joined the $600 million club. Avatar - which also just so happened to be the highest-grossing movie of all time. Bloomberg reports that the film has made No.16 in all-time sales, and took in $30 million this weekend, bringing its global cumulative revenue to $1.8 billion. "Tomb Raider" was no. 1 overseas, grossing $84.5 million, including a $41.1 million in China.

It easily fended off a challenge from Warner Bros' newly released Tomb Raider, an adventure reboot starring Swedish actress Alicia Vikander as the fearless and ferocious Lara Croft. Prior to that, the last five-time champ was The Sixth Sense in 1999. The film had a surprise opening of $17 million and is quite impressive considering the film was only playing in a little over 1600 theaters.

According to comScore, the weekend was down 50 percent from the same weekend in 2017 when Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" opened with a record-breaking $174.8 million.

The total worldwide collections of 5 biggest Indian films (Dangal, Baahubali 2, Secret Superstar, PK and Bajrangi Bhaijaan) are Rs 6,170.56 crore.


Rounding out the top five domestically was director Greg Berlanti's Love, Simon, the adaptation of the novel starring Nick Robinson, Josh Duhamel and Jennifer Garner.

In 2014, the similarly based-on-true-story Heaven is For Real opened with $22.5 million ($24.8 million, adjusted for inflation) and went on to gross about $100 million domestically while the Jesus biopic Son of God launched with $25.6 million ($29.5 million, adjusted).

Its North America total now stands at $605.4 million and the film could overtake the $623 million that the first Avengers movie got back in 2012.

Also, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is crossing the $400 million mark at the domestic box office today.
