So apparently BP is in the brink of taking the all time Sunday gross record from TFA, which means it's looking at a 3 day weekend of around $202m. dang it just keeps getting crazier.

Edit: so the four day estimates have increased to $241-243m with this. Which would put it above TLJ for the four day total, as #2 of all time. Insane.

The fudge happened with this movie?

Overseas numbers are modest in comparison

apparently they pushed the race card here and its getting people to watch it. as if this is the first movie to ever have a black lead. smart marketing if you ask me.

Xevross

Yep ^^ very smart marketing and it is a truly great film. It's doing just better than average MCU overseas (in most places, although UK and South Korea are very high) but the story is resonating with a lot of blacks in America.

I think something like 37% of the audience is black, contributing over $90 to the domestic gross. If you compare black and white population, that's like white people pushing a film to an almost $400m opening, which has obviously never happened.

Do you think it could top last jedi? Globally

There is a very real chance. You would have laughed if you heard that a few months ago.

If I was to bet I'd say it'll fall a bit short, but Black Panther seems to continuously be exceeding all expectations.

TLJ is at $1.326bn rn, and won't finish much higher than that. It had an opening 3 day weekend of $450m worldwide, and Black Panther is looking at around $370-380m, and will have a much bigger monday. So with better legs, BP can make it.

i doubt it. i doubt it will have the legs to do so. the surge in interest for this movie seems to be about the race of the actors, and i doubt that will help legs as much as it was genuine interest in the movie or character.

Disney confirmed a $60.1m Sunday for Black Panther. Only $400k behind TFA's all time record. That puts the three day at $201.8m. Its probably going to be close to the all time Monday record now (which is $40.1m from TFA).
