Marvel's Black Panther is set to do huge bank on its February 16 opening weekend. Tracking services estimate that the Ryan Coogler-directed superhero epic is "guaranteed" to make at least $100 million in its first weekend, with a chance it could hit $150 million within four days.

The high end of that estimate puts Black Panther close to record-breaking territory: Deadpool currently hold the highest domestic opening weekend for a February release, with a $152.1 million haul. Like Deadpool, Panther is opening on President's Day Weekend.

Other pre-release surveys estimate that Panther will pull in between $100-120 million in its opening weekend, making Panther well positioned to surpass Marvel's Doctor Strange, which saw an $85 million debut in November 2016.

Black Panther has sold more pre-release tickets than any Marvel movie ever. Watch a new TV spot for the film above.
