    IMAX, Regal Entertainment Group, Walt Disney Picture and Marvel Studios hosted an advanced IMAX screening of 'Black Panther' for the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Houston at Edwards Houston Marq'e Stadium 23 & IMAX on February 15, 2018 in Houston, Texas.

    "Black Panther" is well on its way to a record-making weekend at the North American box office.

    The Walt Disney Co. estimates Friday that the superhero movie earned $25.2 million from its Thursday preview screenings. It's the second biggest for a Marvel Studios film behind "Avengers: Age of Ultron," which earned $27.6 million in previews, and the best for the month of February.

    Preview screenings typically begin with 7 pm Thursday showings.

    "Black Panther" is now pacing to earn somewhere between $172 and $198 million across the four-day holiday weekend. It will far surpass the previous February record held by "Deadpool" which took in $152.2 million in 2016.

    Internationally, the film has grossed $47 million in its first three days with strong showings in the U.K. and Korea.
