NEW YORK (AP) — “Black Panther” is so far raking it in over the holiday weekend.

The Walt Disney Co. estimated on Saturday that the Marvel Comics superhero movie earned $75.8 million domestically for its opening on Friday, the eighth biggest day in industry history.


Disney now estimates that the movie will earn between $190 million and $210 million for the four-day Presidents Day weekend that started on Thursday.

Besides the strong box office, the movie has been a critical success.

The Ryan Coogler-directed film stars Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. It also features Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong’o.

Official box office estimates are out Sunday.                        /kga
