The Marvel movie, Black Panther is about to hit box office milestone. The flick is about to pass the half billion dollar mark at the box office. This movie saw higher pre-sales than any other superhero movie that has been released so far. It’s a movie that is certainly having a moment, and the numbers reflect that.
This latest venture from Marvel has been out for just about a week now, anyone keeping track of the movie’s progress would know by now that it doing quite well, despite the short time frame it’s has appeared in cinema.
In just a week of its release, Black Panther is about to make $500 million dollars. On Wednesday, the movie already made $491 million worldwide, with its international numbers hopping up to nearly $24 million.
The movie made over $200 million during the extended President’s Day weekend. Although it has been said that movies often drop by 50% or higher during their second weekend in cinemas, but even if Black Panther’s box office drops by that percentage, the numbers should still remain high.
There are a number of reasons regarding Black Panther success when compared with other Marvel solo movies. This includes the cultural moment the movie is having and the unprecedented success of some big budget movies during this quarter in recent years. Nevertheless, whatever the reasons could be, Black Panther is seeing really high numbers, and without a ton of competition at the moment, these numbers should stay high in the coming weeks.
Unlike every other Marvel movies including Avengers: Age of Ultron, they all that took some time before hitting the $500 million mark but this is not the case with Black Panther. It was release the same week both domestically and internationally and have hit really high mark.
