'Black Panther' Passes $700 Million Globally, On Pace To Top 'The Avengers'

Typically, Hollywood movies show a dip in their first week to second week collections.

The movie will place No. 4 behind Sony's holdover Peter Rabbit, which looks to earn $11 million-$12 million in its third weekend for a domestic total of roughly $70 million through Sunday.

What's more, only "The Force Awakens" has enjoyed a better second weekend than "Black Panther".

Having pulled in $192 million (£138 million) in the USA alone during its opening weekend, it was declared it had the biggest opening for a film with a black director (Ryan Coogler) ever, as well as achieving the biggest February opening of all time. This points towards an extraordinary acceptance by audiences. Hence, Black Panther has become the largest earner for Marvel Studios for the first two weeks in history, a trend that might possibly continue on in the third week.

The board is also seeking to hire a director specialising in platform and technology, ideally with an worldwide background. FTSE 250 firm Phoenix will pay £2.28bn of cash and issue Standard Life Aberdeen with a 19.99 per cent shareholding.

Considering how Marvel Studios movies have fared at Indian box office, it wasn't surprising to see Black Panther turning into a success too. The film did receive some decent reviews and it obviously faced tough competition going against Black Panther. The film still has much more to make as it will premiere in the Japanese market on March 1st before heading to China on March 9th.

The new comedy Game Night opened in second place with $16.6 million. The film stars Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams as a couple who sees their weekly game night taken over by a murder mystery that might be more fact than it is playful fiction.

Paramount's science fiction horror film "Annihilation" opened in fourth place with an estimated USD11 million.

Among holdovers, Universal's Fifty Shades Freed rounded out the top five domestically with $7 million as it whipped past the $300 million mark globally, including $89.6 million in North America and $230.8 million internationally for a $320.4 million cume. Not only that, but the pic now has $400 million on this side of the pond (in only 10 days), a milestone that Joss Whedon's aforementioned 2012 team-up took 14 days to hit.
