'Black Panther' Poised To Pounce On BO: Advance Ticket Sales Beating 'Captain America: Civil War'

'Black Panther' Poised To Pounce On BO: Advance Ticket Sales Beating 'Captain America: Civil War'

Black Panther ticket sales outpaced those of Captain America: Civil War in the first 24 hours.

"'Black Panther' is riding an incredible wave of momentum right now", said Fandango editor Erik Davis.

It is among the most anticipated films of 2018 and the weekend box office numbers will nearly certainly reflect that. Tickets went on sale Monday evening to coincide with the new trailer and Kendrick Lamar's performance during the National Championship game.

If presale tickets are any indication, Marvel's latest superhero film could be in for a big opening. However, Civil War hit theaters in May while Black Panther gets an early start to the summer movie season in February - though it does fall neatly on the four-day President's Day holiday.

With the sales and box office tracking, one thing we can assume is that Black Panther will at least be Marvel Studios' 18 consecutive #1 opening.

Black Panther is set for release on February 16, 2018.

The movie which takes place after the events of Captain America: Civil War, finds T'Challa (Boseman) returning to Wakanda following the death of his father to succeed the throne as king.

Black Panther now has a ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating of 4.17 out of 5, making it the second most anticipated upcoming comic book movie among ComicBook.com Users. According to Deadline, non-Disney estimates believe Black Panther will open to $80-$85 million, with a possible shot at $100 million-plus.

A crowdfunding campaign for kids in Harlem to see the Black Panther movie has been hugely successful. Black Panther, which comes out in February, is one of the more long-awaited releases in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
