Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever dominated its opening weekend. Overall it earned $330 million globally at box offices.

The latest film in Phase 4 of Marvel Studios and the latest of the Multiverse Saga earned $180 million domestically and $150 million internationally as reported by Variety. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever broke the record for the highest November opening weekend in North American box office history. The previous number one was 2013’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire at $158 million.

The $180 million is good enough for second place in domestic opening numbers in 2022. The number one spot belongs to another Marvel Studios’ film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ($187 million). It took the place of Universal Studios’ Jurassic World: Dominion‘s ($145 million) spot which now goes to third.


The first film, Black Panther, brought in $202 million domestically in its opening weekend. But Wakanda Forever, despite its great numbers is dealing with the lingering effects of a pandemic in certain countries as well as not having Russia involved.

At number two for the domestic box office was DC’s Black Adam at $8.6 million. Third for the weekend was the romantic comedy Ticket to Paradise at $6.1 million, followed by the family film Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, and the surprise number five film, the horror film Smile at $2.3 million.

With the almost three-hour runtime of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever it will be interesting to see what kind of legs the film is going to have. The rest of the year seems to have one more potential money-maker in Avatar: The Way of Water. No other film looks to have the potential to threaten the current top spots now that Wakanda Forever has claimed its spot.

Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is now playing everywhere in theaters.
