Box Office Results: Black Panther Battles Santa Claus


Marvel’s epic Black Panther: Wakanda Forever maintained its position at the top of the domestic box office this weekend, clawing its way to $17.59 million in its fourth frame. All told, the superhero flick has amassed an incredible $393.7 million domestically and $733 million worldwide. While the sequel is miles away from the original Black Panther’s $1.382 billion worldwide gross, it’s running 6 percent ahead of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, according to Deadline. Wakanda Forever has one more week to itself before James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water sweeps into theaters on Dec. 15.

In a surprising turn, Universal/87 North’s Violent Night earned an impressive $13.3 million in its first weekend, which is just below the $16.2 million sum earned by the studio’s Krampus back in 2015. Considering its R-rating, this is definitely a win for Universal, and it’ll be interesting to see how high this Santa Claus can fly in the remaining weeks. Globally, the pic collected $20.3 million.

Overall, it was a relatively quiet weekend, and the offerings in the weeks ahead (aside from Avatar) likewise look minuscule compared to previous years.
