Ryan Coogler helmed Black Panther has been ruling the Indian box office this week. The movie in 5 days has crossed the 25 crore mark at the box office. Let’s see how this Marvel venture has been faring at the box office.
Black Panther collected 2.69 crores on its 1st Tuesday at the box office taking its grand total to 25.31 crores. The total collections includes the paid previews too. Its gross collection is 32.45 crores. Along with being the favourite at the Indian box office, the movie has been shattering some major milestones at the worldwide box office too.
In a photograph posted on Marvel Studios’ official Instagram page, Coogler (Director) shared that his cast and crew never anticipated the level at which Black Panther would touch movie-goers.
“I am struggling to find the words to express my gratitude at this moment, but I will try. Filmmaking is a team sport. And our team was made up of amazing people from all over the world who believed in this story,” he wrote in the letter.
“Deep down we all hoped that people would come to see a film about a fictional country on the continent of Africa, made up of a cast of people of African descent. Never in a million years did we imagine that you all would come out this strong,” he added.
The project is among the first films from the house of Marvel Studios that predominantly has a black cast and also shows a number of women of substance.
It features Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serki.
Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
