Detective Chinatown 2 arrived on $155m, while Monster Hunt 2 debuted to the tune of $141.3m and itself was involved in a couple of records.

Black Panther, the latest release from the Marvel Studios hit factory, generated $169m from international markets (with China, Russia and Japan yet to open) and $218m from North America.

In the early leader South Korea, the superhero tentpole has raced to $25.3m and ranks as the fifth highest debut by a Hollywood film and has already outstripped the entire runs of Guardians Of The Galaxy and Ant-Man.

In the UK Black Panther grossed $24.8m in its first six days for the highest February opening weekend of all time including previews, and the second biggest debut for a Marvel Studios film behind Avengers: Age Of Ultron. The debut has overtaken the entire run of Justice League, Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor, Ant-Man, and Iron Man.
