‘Panther’ is still clawing its way to glory globally and, thanks to support from support from an African-American led fan base, is to reach the $700 million generated mark by midnight tonight.
In the U.S., 37% of the movie’s overall audience was African-American, which is well above the norm as the average movie audience is about 15% African-American, according to box office tracking company ComScore and Screen Engine. White moviegoers made up just 35% of Black Panther‘s audience over its opening weekend.
With an additional $646.7M internationally, Black Panther’s global cume has risen to $1.346B to date, ranking as the second-biggest film so far this year, trailing only Avengers: Infinity War.
Its sequel is yet to bag a due date and is likely to benefit from Disney & Marvel’s plans to team forces with Fox to reunite a number of Marvel characters via a gargantuan movie deal.
