The opening weekend numbers for Black Panther have grown even higher than originally estimated. The Marvel Cinematic Universe film now has a confirmed three-day gross of $201.8 million domestically and a four-day estimate of $235 million. That’s up from Sunday’s already-stunning figures of $192 million from Friday through Sunday and $225.7 million including President’s Day.

Those numbers make Panther the second-highest MCU film three-day opening weekend with ease, topping Avengers: Age of Ultron’s $191.3 million and not too shy of the first Avengers’ $207.4 million. Even more impressively, the four-day numbers are now the highest-grossing for that frame in the MCU. Avengers had the record with $226.3 million. It is the fifth-highest three-day opening weekend of all-time and the third-best four-day start, behind only Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($288.1 million) and Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($235 million).

Worldwide, the film now sits at $404 million. Needless to say, its a massive hit for Marvel and will make tons of money even with a $200 million budget.
