Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Advance Ticket Sales Over $45M in U.S.

Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has already raced past $45 million in advance U.S. box office ticket sales, and there are several days to go before the highly anticipated Marvel Studios sequel officially opens in roughly 4,300 cinemas domestically.

On Wednesday, Wakanda Forever begins its international rollout on its way to opening everywhere by the weekend (excluding China and Russia). Projections show the tentpole opening to at least $175 million domestically — some exhibitors are suggesting $185 million to $200 million — and anywhere from $155 million to $195 million at the international box office.

As of Sunday, Wakanda Forever‘s advance ticket sales in the U.S. stood at $45 million, which is more than Thor: Love and Thunder but behind the (frontloaded) Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, according to Disney insiders. By Friday, advance ticket sales for the Wakanda Forever number could be in the $60 million-$65 million range, which would rank above the $55 million collected by the first Black Panther.

Among superhero movies released in the pandemic era, Sony and Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home opened to $260.1 million in December 2021. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness opened to $187.4 million in early May of this year, while Thor: Love and Thunder scored $144.2 million in July (both were from Marvel/Disney). In March 2022, DC and Warner Bros.’ The Batman flew to $134 million in its launch. More recently, DC’s Black Adam, starring Dwayne Johnson in his first live-action superhero role, opened to a more subdued $67 million domestically.

Black Panther now #1 superhero movie of all time domestically

By George L. Cook III African American Reports

All hail the king of Wakanda.

Marvel's The Black Panther is now the #1 superhero movie of all time at the domestic box office. Panther grossed another $17 million pushing its gross to $631 million putting it ahead of Marvel's The Avengers which grossed $623 million in 2012.

The Black Panther is also the #5 domestic grossing movie of all time has passed both The Avengers and The Last Jedi this weekend.

There's still the possibility it gets to #4 all time during it's run if it can catch Jurassic World's $652 million.

But you may want to write all of this records in pencil as Avengers: Infinity War opens April 27, 2018, and will be a legit challenger to many of Black Panther's box office records. Although I don't think that it will pass Black Panther's domestic grosses with films like Solo: A Star Wars Story and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opening over the summer months taking screens from Infinity War.

We shall see, but for now, Black Panther is not only the king of Wakanda but the king of all superhero movies. All hail the king!

Black Panther headed toward $150 million opening weekend

Everyone believes that Marvel's upcoming Black Panther movie will be a massive hit at the box office on its opening weekend, but it may be even bigger than initially thought. Earlier projections had it headed for an opening in the $120-$122 million range, but more recent projections show that Black Panther will have one of the biggest openings in Marvel history for a movie without Avengers in the title.

Per Variety:

Disney-Marvel’s “Black Panther” is heading for as much as $150 million in its North American opening on the four-day Presidents Day weekend, updated tracking is showing.

That’s significantly above the first tracking on Jan. 25 for the Chadwick Boseman tentpole, which initially placed the debut in the $100 million to $120 million range for the Feb. 16-19 period. “Black Panther” could break the Presidents Day weekend record of $152 million, set in 2016 by “Deadpool.” It will easily top the second-highest debut for the four-day holiday, set in 2015 when “Fifty Shades of Grey” opened with $93 million.

Black Panther opens on February 16, 2018.

The movie is directed by Ryan Coogler and stars Chadwick Boesman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Angela Basset, Forest Whitaker, and Sterling K. Brown.
