While people knew that Black Panther was among 2018’s most highly-anticipated films and they knew the buzz on it was intense, every week that box office receipts come in must be a shocker for a least some Hollywood observers. Wakanda and King T’Challa have now surpassed the blockbuster Titanic at the box office to take the #3 all-time slot.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Ryan Coogler’Black Panther is still making history nearly two months after it first opened in theaters.

The latest accomplishment: The Disney and Marvel superhero tentpole on Saturday passed 1997’s Titanic to rank as the third top-grossing title of all time at the North American box office behind 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936.7 million) and 2009’s Avatar ($760.5 million), not adjusted for inflation.

Black Panther finished Friday with a domestic total of $659.3 million, just shy of the $659.5 million grossed by Titanic.

Globally, Black Panther has grossed $1.29 billion to date and currently ranks as the No. 10 top-grossing title of all time.

The film — unprecedented in being a big-budget studio tentpole featuring a virtually all-black cast — stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther alongside Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis.

  1. Kudo’s to the AWESOME flick, BLACK PANTHER!!!!!!!!!!!

    However, I am very disappointed that the actors/actresses in the movie did not forfeit their salaries
    in lieu of a percentage of the box office profits.

    These folks would’ve no doubt made out a great deal better $$$$ wise.
