Black Panther is reportedly on its way to being the biggest pre-summer movie opening weekend in box office history.  After grossing $25.2 million in preview screenings and $75 million on opening day, Ryan Coogler’s film is set to rake in another $180-$185 million during the President’s Day three-day weekend.

If Black Panther meets its predicted sales, it will have the sixth highest opening weekend of all time.  On Saturday (Feb. 17), the film is expected to bring in $61 million in ticket sales. The superhero flick is projected to gross more ticket sales than the Avengers: Age of Ultron did during its opening weekend ($204 million), which was a four-day weekend. Black Panther has already surpassed  Beauty and the Beast’s opening weekend profit, which was $174.7M, and WB/DC’s Batman v. Superman , which brought in $166M.

At the end of the four-day weekend, Black Panther is projected to have $213 million in ticket sales.
