Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is aiming for a fourth weekend at the top of the box office, but with muted numbers.  

Avatar: The Way of Water can now take off on December 16 with the runway being cleared. 

Wakanda Forever is targeting a weekend gross of $15 million after earning $4.4 million on its fourth Friday. 

This will bring the domestic running total of the Marvel superhero sequel to slightly over $390 million. 

The Way of Water, which opens in less than a week, will easily surpass the $400 million domestic mark before the movie.  

At this very moment, the movie has earned $700 million worldwide. 

Wakanda Forever has a high bar for success as the follow-up to director Ryan Coogler’s hugely successful 2018 movie. 

The first movie brought in $700 million in the United States alone, and it ended up grossing an amazing $1.3 billion worldwide. 

Before its second weekend in theatres, THR reports that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has made $400.4 million in box office revenue. 

The most successful November launch weekend in history was achieved by Wakanda Forever.
