Black Panther is one of the most highly anticipated films of 2018, selling a record-breaking amount of pre-sale tickets and becoming the top seller among Marvel Cinematic Universe movies in the first 24 hours, beating out Captain America: Civil War.

Projections for the film are now in, and they’re nothing short of impressive. The Marvel-Disney film is expected to open in the $120 million to $150 million range in the U.S. over the four-day Presidents Day weekend, according to Deadline.

Black Panther features an all-star cast, including Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa / Black Panther alongside Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis.
