Advance ticket sales for ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever seem to cross $45 million, just behind ‘Doctor Strange 2’
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has made $45M in advance ticket sales as of Sunday. This is about 20% less than Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and 40% more than Thor: Love & Thunder at the same point in time.
Before it opened to $202M in three days in February 2018, $55M had already been paid for Black Panther tickets. Don’t worry too much about whether advance ticket sales are ahead or behind.
Look at how the first Black Panther opens with his leg out. Also, the sequel is so hot that the walk-up business is likely.
Wakanda Forever is expected to make between $175M and $185M on its first day, for a global opening of between $355M and $365M. The score from the critics on Rotten Tomatoes is 90%.
We’ve heard that advance ticket sales for Black Panther 2 are spread out evenly over the upcoming holiday weekend and not all at once. Friday is Veterans Day, so 52 percent of K-12 schools will be closed. This should help the box office in the United States.
On today’s Disney earnings call, CEO Bob Chapek, who has talked a lot about how Disney+ meets the needs of consumers at home, said that the studio has “big plans for the big screen in 2023” and then talked about a few big movies.
