It is the second highest second weekend for a film behind only "Force Awakens".
Moreover, the success of films such as Black Panther and Wonder Woman have challenged the dogma in Hollywood whereby predominantly female or all-black casts are considered as a financial risk.
It's Black Panther still riding high. Outside the MCU, that $108 million is equally as impressive, landing Black Panther in second place, behind only The Force Awakens' $149.2 million. It now sits on the fifth rung and should easily pass Captain America: Civil War (2016) and Iron Man 3 (2013) this week in the box office. Undoubtedly the biggest blockbuster of the year yet, the Marvel movie has collected a whopping $108 million from the United States and Canadian box offices.
Last week "Black Panther" opened in nearly every market worldwide and everyone went insane, leading to box office records and people to embrace the Wakanda craze.
Till then, Black Panther is likely to continue its reign at the box office. Caucasians made up a bigger share of ticket buyers this time out, with 37 percent, compared to 35 percent on the film's opening weekend, while the African-American share went from 37 percent to 33 percent, according to comScore/Screen Engine.
