The king still rules. "Black Panther" topped $100 million at the box office for the second weekend in a row, according to box-office reports released Sunday.

The Marvel superhero film earned an estimated $108 million from 4,020 theaters in the US and Canada, following a record-breaking opening weekend. The film grossed $242 million over the four-day President's Day holiday weekend.

Only three other films have ever topped $100 million during their second weekend, and T'Challa and crew are in good company. Those films are "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," "Jurassic World," and "The Avengers." "Black Panther" appears ready to settle into second place behind only 2015's "The Force Awakens."

"Black Panther" stars Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa/Black Panther, and also stars Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira and Letitia Wright.
