“Black Panther” Thursday Night Previews Earn $25 Mil, Second Highest Marvel Movie Ever


“Black Panther” earned $25 million Thursday night, second only in the Marvel Universe to “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

Expectations are that the ground breaking comic book movie directed by Ryan Coogler could make north of $150 million for the three day weekend including last night.

But nothing is a certainty. And don’t forget, “Get Out” is playing for free on Monday, which might cut into the “Panther” numbers.

Stay tuned…
