Free tickets to"Black Panther were given to students on Feb. 22 2018 in Grand Rapids Mich
The weekend tally is up from Sunday's estimate of $108 million.
Rotten Tomatoes predicts that the film could easily conquer $650 million at the domestic box office.
Black Panther's success just can't be stopped. It's all but guaranteed considering the film has yet to open in China and Japan.
Bock said he hoped all discussion regarding skin color and box office performance had been put to an end by "Black Panther", giving way to a new era of inclusiveness. And Disney notes that the film scored the biggest three-day weekend ever in West Africa over the weekend, as well as doing near-record business in South Africa. And it tied with 2015's Jurassic World in reaching $400 million faster than any film in history behind The Force Awakens.
This bucks the trend of USA studios only committing modest budgets to black-specific movies, out of a belief that white audiences - particularly in the increasingly important foreign markets - will not be interested.
Of that group, only The Force Awakens had a higher take for its second weekend.
If the momentum continues, the movie might gross over $1 billion, which has only been accomplished by four other Marvel films: The Avengers ($1.518 billion), Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.405 billion), Iron Man 3 ($1.214 billion), and Captain America: Civil War ($1.153 billion).
Black Panther has found love among critics too. It goes with out saying that he'll have plenty more to be thankful for as this film rides out. Hispanics remain unchanged at 18 percent, followed by Asians (7 percent) and Native Americans/Other (5 percent).
The data shows that the superhero extravaganza set in the fictional African nation of Wakanda, an advanced technological nation with vast reserves of vibranium, has declined only 46% from its opening weekend sales.
Among a trio of new films, New Line's R-rated comedy Game Night, starring Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams, fared the best.
Far behind in second place, Warner Bros.' dark comedy mystery film "Game Night" opened with an estimated USD16.6 million.
