The weekend tally is up from Sunday's estimate of $108 million.

"Never in a million years did we imagine that you all would come out this strong".

Veteran concept artist and Marvel Studios visual development supervisor Andy Park served as one of the main concept illustrators for Black Panther, and his work played a big role in the movie's visual treats.

"Black Panther" also didn't have much competition to worry about this weekend. Internationally the film opened to an additional $5 million. It's all but guaranteed considering the film has yet to open in China and Japan. That's the second-best second weekend in movie history.

It also means the film ties Jurassic World for the second-fastest movie to reach that total of all time. "It has become a cultural phenomenon".

"Black Panther" now has grossed $400 million domestically and $704 million worldwide in two weeks.

It's on its way to becoming the third highest grossing superhero movie of all time, behind Avengers: Age of Ultron ($458m) and The Avengers ($623m). It was the highest grossing film of Presidents' Day weekend with a massive $202M haul.

Of those, only "The Force Awakens" had a better second weekend.

A key factor in the popularity and wide acceptance of Black Panther as being the best African American super hero movie is the inclusion of a majority black cast, music, production, and directing staff.

According to tracking service PostTrak, the audience make-up this weekend was 37 percent white, 33 percent black, 18 percent Hispanic, and 7 percent Asian.

The film also stars Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya and Letitia Wright.

The comedy Game Night finished in a distant second place behind Black Panther, with $16.6 million. The blockbuster action flick was in a league of its own, again, leaving newcomers Game Night, Annihilation and Every Day in the dust. Directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the film stars Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, and Kyle Chandler.

Sony's family comedy Peter Rabbit kept hopping along in third place with $12.5 million from 3,707 screens.
