'Black Panther' week two pulls in over $700 million worldwide

With the premiere of Black Panther last week, moviegoers and fans alike were treated to a whole new corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the introduction of Wakanda and its many characters.

Recently, Top Dawg Entertainment's Kendrick Lamar revealed his interest in playing a key role when Black Panther 2 goes into production.

Internationally, the United Kingdom is the film's best-performing market, earning $41.2 million there with South Korea coming in seond with a figure of $36 million.

Bad Boy Records' Diddy knows black excellence when he sees it. And it tied with 2015's Jurassic World in reaching $400 million faster than any film in history behind The Force Awakens.

"The movie continues to play ahead of our modeling". "It has become a cultural phenomenon". And it will soon growl past Avengers: Age of Ultron ($459 million) on its way to potentially eclipsing The Avengers ($623.4 million) to become the No. 1 superhero title of all time, unadjusted for inflation. Even more impressive is the fact that its second weekend haul is now the second highest second weekend for a film, only trailing behind only "Force Awakens".

Black Panther was the number one film in the US for the second weekend in a row, bringing in an estimated $108 million at the box office. Being the first ever black superhero is something unique and special and can't be taken away, but he wasn't the first to the box office.

We believe T'challa has the power.

The action film The 15:17 to Paris fell from fifth to seventh this week, but still brought in $3.6 million and raised its three-week total to $32.3 million. It follows a group of friends whose game night turns into a murder mystery.

Paramount's science fiction horror film "Annihilation" opened in fourth place with an estimated USD11 million. That's more than half what it made last week.

Directed by Ryan Coogler, the superhero blockbuster is annihilating the competition. Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson, Gina Rodriguez and Tuva Novotny co-star.

The other new wide release Every Day opened in ninth with $3.1 million.
