  • Marvel’s “Black Panther” is on track to have the biggest February opening of all time.
  • If domestic box office sales go the way experts are predicting, it could could surpass some of the biggest movie openings of all time. 
  • The film’s early success proves that “Black Panther,” which has a predominantly black cast and was directed and written by a black man, is the kind of movie people want to see.

 

In addition to rave reviews, Marvel’s “Black Panther” is on track to have the biggest February opening weekend ever.

And if domestic box-office sales go the way experts are predicting, they could even surpass some of the biggest openings of all time. 

According to The Hollywood Reportertracking service NRG estimates the movie’s domestic debut will be between $ 165 million and $ 170 million, which would make it the biggest February launch of all time, beating 2016’s “Deadpool,” which opened at $ 152.2 million.

Two weeks ago, NRG predicted “Black Panther” would make $ 125 million opening weekend. So that number could surge even higher.

As Franklin Leonard, founder of The Black List, pointed out, if the projections are correct that means “Black Panther” could beat some of the biggest openings of all time. It could have a bigger opening than movies including “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I,” “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” “The Dark Knight,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” and all movies in “The Hunger Games” franchise. 

Here’s how films with massive opening weekends compare to the “Black Panther” projections:

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I” (2010): $ 125 million

Warner Bros

“Furious 7” (2015): $ 147.18 million

Universal

“Spider-Man 3” (2007): $ 151.1 million
