Black Panther isn’t even in theaters and it’s breaking box office sales history.

Deadline.com reports that the tickets which went on sale Monday night outsold Captain America: Civil War as, “Fandango’s bestselling MCU title in the first 24 hours of presales.”

In the summer of 2016, Captain America: Civil War made $179 million in its first weekend alone. Although the film has not been released yet, the presales often help to decide what the opening weekend will make.

Black Panther will open February 16, which is the same weekend as President’s Day and close to Valentine’s Day. However, the threat of overshadowing is not likely because the movie is highly anticipated.

The industry doesn’t believe that Black Panther will reach the same amount as Civil War but if it does, it will be the movie with the highest opening of all time for February.  Deadpool is the current leader at $132.40 million. It would also be the best opening movie before summer.

At the moment, it’s believed that the film will gross $80 to $85 million and possibly $100 million. However, in a survey using, 8,000 movie watchers conducted by Fandango, Black Panther was voted as one of the year’s most anticipated movies of the year, coming in second only to Avengers: Infinity Wars.

Whatever the case, Black Panther is making waves all over and from the look of the trailers, it looks like the turn will be good. Hopefully, it will exceed industry expectations.

  1. Call me a dreamer: is this film like Oliver Stone’s “JFK”: about the assassinations of Black Panther Party leaders by the Chicago Police and FBI? Have film fans finally taken an interest in political and social justice?

  2. The industry doesn’t believe that Black Panther will reach the same amount as Civil War —– Why does they have to say this. These clowns do not know what Panther is going to do. Wait and see. I will be there.
