Wakanda Forever targets $180 million startup

With around $80 million on Friday (including $28 million from Thursday previews), Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is on a weekend beat of around $180 million. This currently puts it behind other Marvel releases in 2022. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness which opened to more than $187 million in May. Some box office tipsters (myself included) think the film can still top this opening as a walk-in venture for wakanda forever is supposed to be strong on Saturday and Sunday.

It seems like a shorter runtime would have helped this one get more out of it in its opening weekend, but after seeing the movie on Thursday I can say I don’t think there’s had a lost second in this one. And while a headlining and record-breaking opening weekend would be nice, sometimes you have to play the long game without big “event” type releases until December 16, when Avatar: The Way of the Water fate (although for me, violent night December 2 is an event release as I can’t wait to see that one) you can expect wakanda forever play solidly for the next month.

Coming second this weekend is black adam, which, as expected, lost much of its audience to the Panther and is expected to end between $7-11 million. Whereas ticket to paradise continues to be a solid word-of-mouth hit, grossing nearly $7 million for the weekend. Speaking of word-of-mouth success, or in this case, singing…mouth, Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile continues its strong run at the box office with an additional $3-4 million. Oh, and speaking of a word-of-mouth once again, or in this case, smile… from the mouth, Smile continues to pull in strong numbers even after Halloween with an estimated 3-day take of around $2 million as it officially crosses the $100 million mark at the domestic box office.
