There is no stopping Marvel’s Black Panther.
The Ryan Coogler directed flick grossed $112 million in its second weekend, exceeding Sunday’s initial estimates by $3 million, according to Forbes.
In 10-days, Black Panther has earned $404 million at the domestic box office and $700 million at the global box office.
The film now has the second largest second weekend of all time, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which earned $149 million during its second weekend in 2015.
The movie is set to be released in China, which is the world’s second-largest film market, on March 9.
An analyst for comScore, which measures advertising and consumer behavior for media companies, told NBC News that the film would most likely join the $1 billion movie club.
“Whatever your projections for ‘Black Panther’ might be, just increase them by 20 percent and you might be on point,” said Paul Dergarabedian. “Now the question isn’t so much if it gets to $1 billion, but how far beyond that number does it go.”
