The kind of press coverage and reception Black Panther received, it was declared a success even before its release. After 10 days in theaters, Disney's latest Marvel movie is up to an estimated $400 million domestic total.

Black Panther has continued its reign at the top of the North American box office for a second weekend in a row.

1 movie in North America for a second, consecutive weekend, earning $108 million in receipts, BoxOfficeMojo.com announced Sunday.

Black Panther also showed off its staying power, with only a 47 percent drop in its audience numbers for the second weekend.

"Black Panther" is the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

While the number crunching for Black Panther will go on for some time - and common sense tells us there's no reason why it won't come close to Star Wars: The Force Awakens' US$2 billion - focus has already shifted to what comes next.

Ryan Coogler's superhero blockbuster is set to score the second-highest sophomore weekend ever at the domestic box office, earning an estimated $108 million from 4,020 theaters in the US and Canada.

Starring alongside Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o, Boseman plays the titular superhero also known as T'Challa, king and protector of the technologically advanced fictional African nation of Wakanda, an affluent, never-colonized utopia.

The culture knew Black Panther was going to be special, and now we have the receipts. ("The Avengers" occupies the top spot, with $623 million).

The well-reviewed sci-fi thriller "Annihilation" opened with $11 million. But it ended up grossing $242 million in four days over Presidents' Day, making it the second-biggest debut (not adjusted for inflation). That's more than half what it made last week. Despite falling to third place, the animated Peter Rabbit brought in $12.5 million to raise its three-week total to respectable $71.3 million.

Not only to they have to count the rapidly rising stacks of cash from the box office, but they also have to count the ways the new superhero smash is approaching several box office records.

Down two places, "Fifty Shades Freed" earns #5 with $6.9 million (cume now $89.6 million).
