What you think of Black Panther hitting a billion at the box office?
Once it opened with more than ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ domestically I knew it was inevitable. What’s interesting is the breakdown of the numbers. ‘Black Panther’ has made $530m domestically and only $419m overseas. If you compare it to Marvel’s last 3 movies (Guardians 2, Spider-man HC, Ragnarok) they all made around $550m overseas, so internationally ‘Black Panther’ is just playing like the last 3 Marvel movies, which is still great they were big hits, but it’s not performing overseas anywhere near how it is domestically. Domestically it’s performing like an ‘Avengers’ movie. It’s strictly the US box office that’s responsible for it joining the billion dollar club. The movie will probably get close to $600m in the US alone which is absolutely insane. It’s the same thing that happened to ‘Wonder Woman’, with it massively over-performing in the US but not the rest of the world, but this time it’s on an even bigger scale.
