The MCU movie has earned a whopping $1.29 billion worldwide.
Black Panther is on pace to surpass the domestic box office total of James Cameron’s Titanic this weekend and become the third highest-grossing film of all time in North America.
As reported by Deadline, the domestic total for Ryan Coogler’s MCU movie reached $659.3 million by the end of Friday, putting it only slightly behind Titanic’s $659.5 million haul, not accounting for inflation.
As such, the film is set to eclipse Cameron’s 1997 film today (Saturday, April 7) and become the third highest-grossing film ever at the domestic box office. Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avatar hold the number one and two spots with respective hauls of $936.7 million and $760.5 million.
Worldwide, Black Panther has earned a whopping $1.29 billion and currently stands as the tenth highest grossing film at the global box office. The film is just ahead of Frozen’s $1.28 billion total and right behind Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s $1.33 billion worldwide haul.
Ever since it was released in February, Black Panther has been breaking records left and right. The Marvel movie had the second-largest second weekend ever at the domestic box office, unadjusted for inflation, as well as the highest-grossing Tuesday in MCU history. It’s also now the top-grossing superhero film of all time at the domestic box office.
