Black Panther has already broken a ton of box office records in its release. Fifth latest domestic opening weekend ever, biggest February opening ever, biggest opening for an African-American filmmaker (Ryan Coogler). The biggest single-day gross on a Monday. And so on. In short, Black Panther equals dollar signs.

It’s only going to grow from there according to Hollywood data tracker BoxOfficeMojo. The film is on pace to become only the fourth film ever to gross $100 million in its second week. The only other films to achieve such a feat were Star Wars: The Force AwakensJurassic World, and the first Avengers.

BP is gauged to pull in around $120 million, which would be the second biggest gross for a film in its second week behind The Force Awakens‘ $149.2 million. Should it check off all these boxes, BP would cross $400 million in domestic gross and become the second fastest film to $400 million in America.

Don’t expect the black excellence to slow down at the box office any time soon. The next biggest film to come out? Ava Duvernay’s A Wrinkle In Time on March 9.
