Black Panther Breaks More Records – How Successful Can It Get?by 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

The freight train success that has been Black Panther continues to roll on – and while the past few years have already been hugely successful for Disney and the Marvel Studios brand, it seems that 2018 could break new ground for them – they earned over $6 billion at the box office last year – and if Black Panther continues to rack up the cash at the rate it continues to, it may well be that this movie alone could contribute a fair slice of this on its own. It currently sits as the second fastest-grossing movie of all time – and with $400 million already having been earned in its first week and a half, this is a picture that is going to go on to break more and more records as it continues to entertain in theaters.

The movie is already pouncing past the likes of other big superhero standards – and it’s thought to already be hot on the heels of Sony’s 2002 Spider-Man movie – meaning that it will crack the top five all-time highest-grossing superhero movies in the US once it exceeds the magic number of $413 million – with the Chadwick Boseman-fronted adventure looking set to hold firm at the top of the box office in the US and elsewhere worldwide, it seems likely that it will join a very hallowed club. Only the likes of Christoper Nolan’s The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises – as well as the first two Avengers movie – stand in its way. This is incredible company to be in – and even more so to challenge, particularly as Age of Ultron leads the way at just $200 million more – Black Panther is already two thirds of the way there within its first ten days, and this shouldn’t be dismissed as being anything less than incredible.

Black Panther has proven to be an absolute triumph for Marvel Studios which many expected but which has still taken plenty by surprise as its success continues to grow. The movie offers a majority black cast with a story that touches on important topics sensitively while still retaining that classic Marvel sense of fun. Neither preachy nor long-winded, Black Panther is a movie which does marvellously well to balance an important message and cast alongside its addictive sense of fun. Critically lauded and still being lapped up by audiences, we’ll be seeing the movie break records and box offices for some time to come.
