Black Panther opened over the weekend and did "okay" at the box office...

Black Panther is king with $387 million at the global box office! Marvel Studios‘ Black Panther is king at the global box office with an estimated $387 million through Monday’s Presidents’ Day holiday! 

The film opened to an estimated $192 million domestically for the three-day portion of the weekend from 4,020 theaters, an average of $47,767 per location, and is expected to gross $218.2 million through Monday. The $192 million figure is the highest debut ever for a February film (beating Deadpool‘s $132.4 million from 2016) and the fifth-highest opening weekend of all time. Black Panther received an A+ CinemaScore from audiences. 

Internationally, Black Panther has brought in $169 million since beginning its overseas rollout on Wednesday, February 13, bringing its worldwide total to $361 million through Sunday. Including Monday’s domestic estimate, that total climbs to $387 million.

I saw it last night and really enjoyed it. I think this is the first of many records this film is going to break.
