Black Panther has been taking the world by storm and has made history for the world’s largest theater chain: AMC.
Yesterday, it was reported that Black Panther became the highest-grossing film at 33 AMC locations, and today that number has almost tripled, with the theatre chain (via The Hollywood Reporter) reporting that the film has become the highest-grossing film at 80 locations.
Essentially, the film has made more money at these theatres than any other film has during their respective opening-weekend. AMC’s 80 theatres represent 10% of their locations, so this is a pretty big deal for the theatre chain.
The film is expected to make $218 million during its opening weekend, thanks to the four-day holiday in The United States and Canada. Black Panther has also become quite the critical success, earning the coveted A+ CinemaScore and the Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
