And it's one of just four films to ever to earn $100 million or more on its second weekend.

It's also the fourth film to cross USD100 million in its second weekend.

Featuring Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams, the film follows a group of friends whose game night descends into a murder mystery. Its domestic total is now $400 million. It also has become Marvel's best weekend-on-weekend performer, dropping just 46% between its opening weekend and last weekend. Early word was that Captain Marvel would be the anchor, but given Black Panther's success should Marvel make him the new Captain America? But nobody foresaw that this film would threaten the top Marvel Cinematic Universe films, including The Avengers.

"It still humbles me to think that people care enough to spend their money and time watching our film", said Black Panther director Ryan Coogler in an open letter to his fans.

Black Panther is still lit at the box office.

Apple to launch largest iPhone ever this fall
Over the weekend, however, an alleged photo of a 6.5-inch iPhone display leaked online (that would be the alleged iPhone X Plus ). Apple , however, could introduce a gold-colored iPhone X apart from the black and white options available now.

Black Panther is now in theaters.

A quick check of Rotten Tomatoes reveals it has a 97% favorable rating (326 positive reviews to 11 negative), with its audience rating coming in lower at 78% having stated they liked it.

Black Panther has found love among critics too.

To give some context, from week one to weeke two Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Star Wars: The Last Jedi dropped nearly 70 per cent, and Captain America: The First Avenger and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part One, for example, dropped around 60 per cent.

"It will obviously now lead to all kinds of different sequels and could remain in the zeitgeist for years to come". But until Black Panther and Wonder Woman neither had properly taken centre stage and directed the narrative. That means that in its first twelve days, "Black Panther" has brought in over 90 percent of what "Guardians of the Galaxy" did in its entire five-month theatrical run. "If you look beyond the most obvious examples, which are the movies, you have the gatekeepers at the studios and it's still pretty white".
