Wakanda Forever!! Analysts are predicting Black Panther will sit at the No. 1 spot for the third weekend in a row, raking in an estimated $60 million Friday through Saturday. This news comes after already crushing records during its 1st and 2nd weekend in theaters. Black Panther collected an estimated $112 million during the 2nd weekend, becoming the fourth film ever to cross $100 million in its 2nd weekend. It’s the 2nd highest 2nd weekend for a film behind Force Awakens. During its debut weekend, Panther brought in about $218 million over the four-day President’s Day holiday. The film has exceeded $400 million in the United States and has brought in $704 million worldwide. By the way, China (the 2nd biggest market) hasn’t even released the film yet. So, there’s no doubt the film will reach the billion dollar mark. OMG!
In the spirit of the film that is focused on celebrating the black community and technology, Disney just announced that they are donating 1 million dollars to The Boys and Girls Club! The money will go specifically to their STEM program (Science Technology Engineering and Math). Congratulations to them for putting money back into the community and helping to create a Wakanda in our society.
