‘Black Panther’ earns a record-shattering $235 million at box office

The King of Wakanda reigned supreme over the holiday weekend as Disney’s “Black Panther” proved to be a pop cultural phenomenon, shattering box office records with an estimated $235 million in U.S. and Canadian ticket sales for the 4-day holiday weekend.

The Marvel Entertainment release, the first global superhero blockbuster with an African- American director and a mostly black cast, exceeded expectations and set records for a February opening and for a Presidents Day weekend debut. The previous record holder was “Deadpool,” which made $152 million domestically over the 4-day holiday in 2016.

“Black Panther” is the fifth highest domestic opening weekend of all time, behind only “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (2015), “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” (2017), “Jurassic World” (2012) and “Marvel’s The Avengers” (2012).
