With its performance in the box office this weekend (projected at $62.6 million), Black Panther is on track to snag the third-best third weekend ever at the domestic box office next to Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($90.2 million) and Avatar ($68.5 million). Experts predict that worldwide, the film is not far from hitting the $1 billion mark.
