Ryan Coogler’s groundbreaking superhero pic Black Panther continued to defy all expectations in its sophomore outing, grossing an estimated $108 million from 4,020 theaters to score the top second weekend of all time behind Star Wars: Force Awakens.
The Disney and Marvel title hit the $400 million mark in the U.S. in just 10 days after dropping a narrow 47 percent from its opening weekend. That’s one of the lowest declines ever for a superhero title, as well as one of the lowest for a film launching north of $200 million (the bigger the opening, the bigger the drop in many instances).
Overseas, it earned $83.8 million for an international tally of $304 million and global haul of $704 million. Imax theaters have turned in a total $50 million.
