While it isn't breaking records offshore the same way it is in the U.S., Black Panther is exceeding expectations and has a strong shot at outgrossing a number of Marvel titles, as well as some DC superhero offerings.

Well this past weekend the film did it again, smashing more records and moving T'Challa and company closer to billionaire status.

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's worldwide debut (of $184.6 million) forever slams the door on the myth that predominately black films can't make money overseas", said Jeff Bock, a senior box office analyst at Exhibitor Relations. It is only the fourth film in history to bring in over $100 million during its second weekend. It opens in Russian Federation on Monday, followed by Japan next weekend and China on March 9.

"In some ways, what "Black Panther" represents is the culmination of all these different elements of African-American storytelling on a mainstream scale reaching that sort of level", Kohn said on IndieWire's Screen Talk podcast.

Alex Garland's sci-fi pic Annihilation, starring Natalie Portman opposite Oscar Isaac, opened to a muted $11 million from 2,012 theaters. The film stars Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams as a couple who sees their weekly game night taken over by a murder mystery that might be more fact than it is playful fiction.

Forbes points out that while Black Panther sees no big competition at the box office, in a few weeks the film's run could be hampered in March due to many big releases. Angourie Rice, Justice Smith, Debby Ryan and Maria Bello star. Updated with foreign numbers.
