Marvel’s “Black Panther” breaks records in weekend debut
Marvel’s latest movie has broken several records in its opening weekend.
“Black Panther” easily pounced into first place with an estimated three day gross of $192 million. That number marks the highest debut ever for a film opening in February, and the fifth highest of all time.
“Black Panther” smashed the record for the biggest Presidents Day weekend opening. The movie also set a new benchmark for Thursday night preview screenings, bringing in just over $25 million that night alone.
