It’s not surprising that it didn’t take much time for “Black Panther” to begin setting box office records. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that after earning a record $25.2 million on Thursday night, it became the largest February premiere in United States history. Previously, “Deadpool” held that record. “Black Panther: even surpassed “Captain America: Civil War” which brought in $25 million from its opening night.
“Black Panther” was just not a hit in the United States. Internationally, “Black Panther” brought in $47 million in three days. $10.7 of that $47 million was brought in from the United Kingdom alone.
Popular movie ticket sales site, Fandango, reported that “Black Panther” had the fourth highest ticket pre-sales in its history. “Star War: The Force Awakens” holds the title of having the highest number of ticket pre-sales in Fandango’s history.
It sounds like “Black Panther” is on track to break more records over the weekend! I can’t wait to see it!
