“Wakanda Forever” grabs $84 million in opening day

Marvel Cinematic Universe’s “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” begins to dominate box office earlier this weekend, as the film has grossed an eye-propping $84 million at the opening day, marking off the fifteenth-highest grossing at debut and the second-highest grossing at the opening day this year.

Marvel’s “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” in tandem, has the highest grossing at opening day this year which had racked up a $90.4 million debut. Aside from that, “Wakanda Forever” had topped the total of “Black Panther” by $3 million, too.

Nevertheless, considering the vastness of Afro-American community, which accounts for a one-fourth of entire US population, a total domination of "Wakanda Forever" could be vindicated. “Wakanda Forever” had tallied a tantalizing $26 million on Thursday’s preview, signalling that a huge shake-up ahead of Christmas holiday season is going to appear at domestic box office.

According to Marvel’s latest forecast, “Wakanda Forever” is expected to garner a total between $185 million and $200 million by Sunday night, however, some industry analysts had argued that the film will fall short of the projection.

Nonetheless, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” has the largest opening weekend so far this year with a $187 million debut in May, while it remains to be seen whether “Black Panther” could surpass the film by Monday.

Aside from that, “Black Panther” will be the first film after July to score above $100 million at its opening weekend. The fourth installation of a Hemsworth-starring Thor, “Thor” Love and Thunder,” was the last movie that had secured above a $100 million in the opening weekend, So far, critics across the globe have welcomed “Wakanda Forever” with Rotten Tomatoes rating the movie at 84 per cent.
