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.

Wakanda forever - and for the fifth weekend in a row. Sony's sixth weekend of family comedy Peter Rabbit followed with $5.2 million at 2,725 sites for a 38-day total of $102.4 million. And it's likely to eventually pass Jurassic World at $652.3 million for fourth place and Titanic at $659 million for third place.

Overseas, the film is approaching the $100 million mark in China with a $96 million total after ten days, giving the film a $577 million worldwide haul and a $1.18 billion global total.

Still, Black Panther continues to make history. Tomb Raider was no. 1 overseas, grossing $84.5 million, including a $41.1 million in China.


In theaters now, Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa/Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan as N'Jadaka/Erik "Killmonger" Stevens, Lupita Nyong'o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Daniel Kaluuya as W'Kabi, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Forest Whitaker as Zuri and Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue.

So far since opening, Black Panther has beat premiere weekend's of Disney's A Wrinkle in Time, Fox's action film Red Sparrow, and MGM's remake of Death Wish starring Bruce Willis.

The surprise of the weekend was the Lionsgate-Roadside Attractions Christian drama "I Can Only Imagine", which grossed $17.1 million on 1,629 screens - less than half the number that Black Panther, Tomb Raider and A Winkle in Time played on. This is also the first time the film has fallen out of the top 10 since its opening December 20. "Black Panther" brought in over $27M across 3,834 locations this weekend, raising the film five-week domestic total to just over $605M. A domestic final haul near $95 million is possible. The $10 million production scored a solid $11 million in its first three days from 2,402 screens.

Next weekend sees the arrival of Pacific Rim: Uprising, Sherlock Gnomes, Unsane and Paul, Apostle of Christ.
