Black Panther Blu-ray and 4K steelbooks revealed

The movie now ranks 10th best all time domestically (before inflation), and its $501.1 million is better than every previous Marvel movie to date except for 2012's The Avengers.

"Black Panther" has posted an estimated $65.7 million in its third weekend, ranking it No. 3 among all third-frames in box office history.

Disney has already generated over $4 billion from the last three Star Wars films and "Black Panther" is sure to be on its way to hit that billion dollar mark, so is Disney's contribution really all that special?

"Black Panther" is also doing brisk business overseas, with a worldwide box office take of $897.8 million and counting.

"Disney wins no matter how you slice it with that film expected to have a strong debut as Black Panther continues to draw big crowds", said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore (via Time).

WB/New Line's "Game Night" takes fourth with an estimated $9.8 million in its second weekend, keeping its drop-off to a solid 42 percent.

It fits, on more than just a visual level: a philosophically divergent rival, raised in the United States at the pinnacle of anime's import into the west, whose conflict with his cousin more than passingly resembles the righteous fury of some of anime's most memorable villains.
