Although a few other movies are going up this weekend, that’s it Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s (NYSE: DIS) light period, and may lead to several weeks.
The sequel to the hit Runaway Black Panther (DIS) grossed $181.3M domestically in its first weekend — the second-best opening of the year, behind only its Marvel sibling. The Amazing Doctor in Many Kinds of Psychiatry, and $187M.
This brought the total box office to $209M last week (most from Wakanda Forever, of course) – but with the fall of the usual blockbuster and less competitive films, the industry should see a big decline in the coming weekend even if Marvel continues to dominate.
An all-time low (more than half of its opening weekend) could follow Black Panther to target the $72M range, and landing there would seem like a good deal for Disney ( DIS ).

Any of them may have trouble making double digits, which suggests that the domestic box office may fall below $100M for the weekend.
