(Newser) Black Panther is so far raking it in over the holiday weekend, the AP reports. The Walt Disney Co. estimated Saturday the Marvel Comics superhero movie earned $75.8 million domestically for its opening Friday, the eighth biggest day in industry history. Disney now estimates the movie will earn between $190 million and $210 million for the four-day Presidents Day weekend that started Thursday. Besides the strong box office, the movie has been a critical success. The Ryan Coogler-directed film stars Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. It also features Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong'o.
