Black Panther Beats Out Star Wars: The Force Awakens for the Biggest Monday Ever at the Box Office

This post was originally published on this site

Wakanda now, Wakanda FOREVER. Black Panther cleaned out on Monday at the box office, raking in a huge $40.2 million in ticket sales. That means that the superhero film just snagged the title for the biggest Monday ever and also brought its four-day box-office total to a smooth $242 million.

As ABC News notes, that also means that Black Panther officially bested the previous record set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which in 2015 secured the title with $40.1 million in Monday ticket sales.

The movie’s Monday numbers also mean that the film had the second-biggest four-day weekend on record, second only to the aforementioned Star Wars installation, which still holds the record with $288.1 million. And as I’ve said before (and will keep on saying), when you manage to run on par with and/or beat out one of the biggest media franchises in history, you’re doing something incredibly right, and Black Panther is oh so right.

I expect by now that everyone has seen Black Panther, and if you have not, I am seriously judging you. What are you honestly waiting on?
