Black Panther

‘Black Panther’ Just Had The Second-Largest Second Weekend Box Office Ever

Marvel Studios

Black Panther held steady in its second weekend in a big way.

With an estimated haul of $108 million, the Ryan Coogler-directed Marvel movie had the second-largest second weekend ever at the domestic box office, beating out massive hits such as The Avengers and Jurassic World in the process. The only film it fell short of is Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which made $149.2 million back in 2015.

Having now reached the $400 million mark in North America, Black Panther is now the third-fastest movie to reach the milestone ($400M in 10 days) and is on pace to eclipse Captain America: Civil War and Iron Man 3’s total domestic hauls of $408.1 million and $409 million, respectively.

Internationally, Black Panther has grossed $304 million so far, bringing its worldwide earnings to $704 million.

Coming in second place over the weekend was the Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams-led R-rated comedy Game Night, which debuted with an estimated $16.6 million. The other major debut was Alex Garland’s sci-fi thriller Annihilation (which is incredible, by the way), which placed fourth with an estimated $11 million. Thanks to a deal between Paramount and Netflix, Annihilation will be available for streaming internationally just 17 days after its debut in the United States.

Here are the top 10 releases at the North American box office, with estimates provided by Box Office Mojo:

1. Black Panther $108 million

2. Game Night $16.6 million

3. Peter Rabbit $12.5 million

4. Annihilation $11 million

5. Fifty Shades Freed $6.9 million

6. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle $5.7 million

7. The 15:17 to Paris $3.6 million

8. The Greatest Showman $3.4 million

9. Every Day $3.1 million

10. Early Man $1.7 million
