Marvel and Disney’s Black Panther continues its reign as a box office superhero. The film is high on a record-breaking streak, and it’s just made history again. Its $652.5 million domestic box office total reported on Tuesday officially beats out Jurassic World ‘s $652.3 million earned in 2015.
That makes Black Panther the No. 4 movie ever in the U.S.
And in a mere $6.8 million, Ryan Coogler’s MCU-redefining film will pass 1997’s Titanic to give us a new No. 3. (It could happen as early as Thursday or Friday, although Forbes ‘ estimate isweekend’s end if not very early next week.)
Once Black Panther passes James Cameron’s nautical 11-time Oscar-winner, it will need to rally another $100 million to hit Avatar ‘s $760.5 mill. At the top of the heap is Star Wars: The Force Awakens, dropped in December 2015 and outperformed all of American movie history to the tune of $936.6 million.
Globally, Black Panther lapped
Frozen’s $1.276 billion, entering the top 10 movies of all time with a total gross of $1.279 billion to date. The top five international markets for the Wakanda-set flick have been China, the U.K., South Korea, Brazil, and France.
It’s already been a couple weeks, though, since Black Panther became the highest grossing solo superhero movie.
