If it hasn’t yet, BP is on track to be the highest grossing superhero film in the US. Not to be confused with ticket sales, Spider-Man and Avengers still have it beat there

And the so-called China snub never happened. At almost $100 billion million, BP is doing well enough there any characterization of 'poor performance' isn't true.

As a comparison, here are some other major comic book movies adjusted for ticket price inflation.

Superman (1978) $526.5 million
Batman (1989) $577.9 million
Spider-Man (2002) $637.8 million
The Dark Knight (2008) $681.7 million
The Avengers (2012) $705.7 million

Of course, this is not the same as tickets sold, in which case all of these would top BP, but there's no denying this film's great success.

Well it looks like BP will settle in at the #3 domestic spot, over Titanic. World Wide it just crossed 1.3 billion at #10, only 32 million behind Last Jedi and 41 million behind Deathly Hallows Part 2, if it can hold to the low drops in the lead up to Infinity War it could still pass them both but it's unlikely it will overtake Age of Ultron (1.4 billion).

I’m actually pretty curious to see how it performs in Saudi Arabia. It’s the first movie to be screened in the country in 35 years

I expected good week-to-week holds for Black Panther but so far it looks like all the holds are sub -20%, Saturday was only -11%, that's just crazy. I guess everybody that said they wanted to catch BP one more time, or for the first time, before Infinity War are actually doing it.

I feel there might be a chance that BP may even rally a bit up the chart after IW.

If BP was playing near me, I would totally catch it again over the next couple weekends. Unfortunately, that’s not the case (waiting for the theatre that gets movies at the very end of their runs right now, so it will probably be there in 3 weeks).
Ready Player One and Rampage are probably about to take a major beating.
