Marvel Studios’ Black Panther has made an estimated $387 million at the global box office! The film opened to an estimated $192 million in the U.S. for the three-day portion of the weekend from 4,020 theaters, an average of $47,767 per location, and is expected to gross $218.2 million through Monday. The $192 million figure is the highest debut ever for a February film (beating Deadpool‘s $132.4 million from 2016) and the fifth-highest opening weekend of all time.

Internationally, Black Panther has brought in $169 million so far, bringing its worldwide total to $361 million through Sunday. Including Monday’s U.S. estimate, that total climbs to a massive $387 million.

Marvel Studios’ Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

Black Panthers stars Chadwick Boseman, reprising his Captain America: Civil War role, alongside Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, with Angela Bassett, with Forest Whitaker and, returning from Avengers: Age of Ultron, Andy Serkis.

The film is directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Jeffrey Chernov and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. Ryan Coogler & Joe Robert Cole wrote the screenplay, based on the Marvel Comics character who made his debut in 1966 during Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s epochal Fantastic Four run.

Black Panther made its debut in Australian cinemas on February 15, 2018.
