“Black Panther” Did Better Than Predicted on Sunday, Finished Weekend with $403 Million US


Never bet again T’Challa.

Turns out “Black Panther” did better than predicted for Sunday, coming in closer to $35 million than the prognosticated $31.6 million. So instead of $400 mil plus change, the domestic total is probably $403 million.

At this rate, “Black Panther” will be number 1 all week and weekend, beating all new releases including “Red Sparrow,” which will do well, and “Death Wish,” which will not. “Black Panther” will be number 1 on Oscar night, so look for as many of its cast as the Oscars can persuade to be at the show.
