Wakanda Forever Scores the Year’s Second best Opening with $180 Mn

The domestic debut of Disney and Marvel studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever raked in an estimated $180 million, making it the highest-grossing November opening of all time and second highest opening of 2022.

In the days leading up to its release, the buzz for the sequel to 2018’s Blockbuster Black Panther was high thanks to positive reviews that praised the film for paying tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman and expecting the scope of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

According to the reports, Wakanda Forever is projected to bring in 12.7 million viewers this weekend. The only other film to open to a larger audience was the Multiverse of Madness which earned $ 187 million.

As per the sources, it is possible that Wakanda Forever will break that record in the few upcoming weeks due to a rise in the purchase of tickets.

Currently, the picture has a higher weekend than Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which had the highest opening of all time with $158 million.

An increase in the number of Hispanic moviegoers and African-Americans going to the movies over the weekend was a major sector in the surge in sales of movie tickets.

If sources are to be believed, the cast of Wakanda forever, much like the cast of Black Panther, is primarily African-American, although it also includes a number of Hispanic performers. These two groups of people are extremely vital to the financial success of the first movie that was released in theatres.

As per the study by EntTelligence, 36% of the moviegoers were African Americans, which is more than twice as many demographic are generally comprised for representing Marvel films. 13% of the sales were made up of the members of the Hispanic audience.
