'Black Panther' is top grossing Feb movie ever released

'Black Panther' Has Highest-Grossing First Week Ever for a Marvel Studios Film

Then again, that number pales to the $26, 877 theater average that "Black Panther" had, but it is still something of a silver lining for the sci-fi horror film starring Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Tessa Thompson.

Disney and Marvel Studios' "Black Panther" has grossed a spectacular USD400 million in North America through Sunday and is the highest grossing movie ever released in the month of February.

Unsurprisingly, those second-weekend numbers come with their own set of records.

Imax, which is playing "Black Panther" in more than 60 countries, said people are paying to see the film a few times, a quality that the biggest of the big movies share. Both of those films fall behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which achieved $400 million in just 8 days. It is only the fourth film in history to bring in over $100 million during its second weekend.

"Black Panther" has no signs of slowing down at the domestic box office.

Even with that, the talent gap between them and Germany's Bayern is expected to prove to be too much for the Turkish team. Bayern turned the screw at the start of the second half as Coman stepped onto Lewandowski's pull back and made it 2-0.

Now Black Panther has additionally scored the second-biggest second weekend gross of all time unadjusted for inflation, beating Jurassic World's $106.5 million but falling behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens' $149 million. That would translate into a box office haul north of $600 million, possibly even higher than the $623 million brought in by reigning superhero flick champ The Avengers six years ago.

According to tracking service PostTrak, the audience make-up this weekend was 37 percent white, 33 percent black, 18 percent Hispanic, and 7 percent Asian. Overseas, Game Night launched to $5.2 million from 22 markets for a global bow of $22.2 million.

Opening in second place with a decent $16.6 million from 3,488 theaters is the Warner R-rated comedy Game Night. ("The Avengers" occupies the top spot, with $623 million).

"Peter Rabbit" was third, with $12.5 million in its third weekend in release.

Paramount's science fiction horror film "Annihilation" opened in fourth place with an estimated 11 million dollars. Ryan also happens to be the director of the American superhero venture.
