The Marvel-Disney nickname is aimed at a North American opening in the range of $ 100 million to $ 120 million for the weekend of the four-day Presidents' Day, early tracking was shown on Thursday.
That would be a range similar to the two most recent Marvel entries: "Spider-Man: Homecoming", which was launched at $ 117 million on its opening weekend in July and "Thor: Ragnarok", which debuted with $ 122 million in the second weekend of November. The follow-up showed a total awareness of "Black Panther" at 83%, knowledge without help of 35% and a defined interest of 56%.
The advance sale of tickets for "Pantera negra" set a new record earlier this month for Fandango as the best seller among the Marvel Cinematic Universe films in the first 24 hours, surpassing "Captain America: Civil War" .
Chadwick Boseman plays T & # 39; Challa, who takes over as the king of Wakanda after he kills his father T & # 39; Chaka, as shown in "Captain America: Civil War". The film also stars Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Michael B. Jordan. Ryan Coogler directed the film from a script he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole.
"Black Panther" is the 18th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "Captain America: Civil War" was opened in May 2016, and is the 15th highest worldwide, with $ 1.15 billion. "Thor: Ragnarok" dragged $ 851 million worldwide.
