Marvel Fan Imagines M'Baku as the 'Black Panther'

It's all but guaranteed considering the film has yet to open in China and Japan.

The Force Awakens remains the champ in terms of biggest second weekend domestically with $149.2 million, not accounting for inflation. It is only the fourth film in history to bring in over $100 million during its second weekend.

Imax, which is playing "Black Panther" in more than 60 countries, said people are paying to see the film a couple of times, a quality that the biggest of the big movies share.

"Black Panther is a top tier Marvel movie with all the humor, style, action, passion, and fun that the MCU has come to embody", GameSpot's Michael Rougeau said in his review.

Already, Black Panther has outperformed the lifetime totals of the three films released by the Marvel Cinematic Universe past year: Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnarok with theaters reporting a greater amount of repeat viewings than usual. It also showed only a 47% drop in its second weekend, which is a much smaller drop than other Marvel films such as "Captain America: Civil War" and "The Avengers: Age of Ultron", which were closer to 60%. Being the first ever black superhero is something unique and special and can't be taken away, but he wasn't the first to the box office. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T'Challa's mettle as king - and as Black Panther - gets tested when he's drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk.

Directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the story follows a couple whose regular game night with friends suddenly turns into a real-life murder mystery.

Among a trio of new films, New Line's R-rated comedy Game Night, starring Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams, fared the best. It took in $17 million.

Despite falling to third place, the animated Peter Rabbit brought in $12.5 million to raise its three-week total to respectable $71.3 million.

Annihilation opened in fourth place with $11 million.
