Black Panther Box Office collections: It's a Marvel in India!

Having pulled in $192 million (£138 million) in the United States alone during its opening weekend, it was declared it had the biggest opening for a film with a black director (Ryan Coogler) ever, as well as achieving the biggest February opening of all time. Internationally the film opened to an additional $5 million. This is behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) with $149 million, and ahead of Jurassic World (2015) with $106.6 million and The Avengers (2012) with $103 million.

The success of Black Panther is ever on the up-and-up. The image, posted to Park's Twitter account, is reminiscent of a classic Black Panther look, with a long flowing cape, and a high, Doctor Strange-esque collar to go along with it. However, in just the second week alone Black Panther made $108 million at the box office, which makes it the second-biggest second weekend gross of all time (The Force Awakens is number one at $149m).

In its second week, the must-see movie easily banked around $108 million at the box office.

For now, "Black Panther" is one of the top 10 highest-grossing superhero films, but many analysts don't see any reason why this box-office bullet train will slow down, so the sky's the limit for King T'Challa. Being the first ever black superhero is something unique and special and can't be taken away, but he wasn't the first to the box office.

Meanwhile, Chadwick Boseman will be returning as Black Panther in Marvel's upcoming Avengers sequel, Infinity War, which is due to arrive in theaters on May 4.

Featuring Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams, the film follows a group of friends whose game night descends into a murder mystery.

And Annihilation, starring Gina Rodriguez and Natalie Portman, did a more sluggish $11 million in its opener this weekend in theaters.

Despite falling to third place, the animated Peter Rabbit brought in $12.5 million to raise its three-week total to respectable $71.3 million.

"Fifty Shades Freed" took fifth place with $6.9 million.
