Looks like “Black Panther” is one step closer to hitting the billion-dollar mark.
In its second weekend, “Black Panther” collected almost $108 million in the U.S. and Canada, making the total after only 12 days, $704 million.
The movie is doing extremely well considering Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” collected $773 million in 2014 over a span of five months.
According to Imax, which is playing the film in more than 60 countries, people are seeing the film more than once.
“This movie has very strong word of mouth and a deeply loyal core fan base, which are both necessary criteria for repeat business,” said Greg Foster, Imax’s entertainment chief.
While the film has yet to arrive in China and Japan, two of Hollywood’s biggest markets, it has received high numbers in other Asian countries, including South Korea.
