“Wakanda Forever” stays on top of Box Office for fifth weekend as ticket sales fall

Without presence of any notable releases over the weekend, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” had stayed on top of domestic box office for a sucessive fifth week in a row. In the matter of the fact, coming into the fifth week after release, the superhero sequel had added another an $11.1 million from 3,725 big screen, totalling its domestic tally at $409 million while becoming the third movie of the year to surpass the $400 million barrier on domestic box office.

Apart from that, the original “Black Panther” also had stayed on top of the box office for a consecutive five-week in a row, however, their grossing had had a significant difference. While the revenues of “Black Panther” would likely to cool down far gradually than predicted with nearly a 25 per cent African-Americans accountable for entire US population, but the sequel would unlikely to reach the height that the original did.

The original “Black Panther” had shelved a whopping $700 million in domestic box office alongside a $1.3 billion in revenues across the globe. However, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” had to witness a significant scale of backlash as the film had to grapple with the loss of the title star Chadwick Boseman, who had died back in the 2020 in cancer.

“Wakanda Forever” holds top spot at domestic box office.

Apart from a $409 million in domestic box office, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” had racked up a $767.8 million globally. Meanwhile, praising the movie’s stance in the box office chart despite absence of Boseman, a senior analyst at ComScore, Paul Dergarabedian said, “A five-week stand at the top of box office charts — while great for ‘Wakanda Forever’ — is not a formula for ongoing success for the industry.

This has placed enormous pressure on ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ to deliver big when it opens later this week”. “Violent night” came in at second spot with a grossing of $8 million, while the domestic box office only witnessed a $32.8 million in ticket sales over the weekend, one of the worst weekends this year.
