Black Panther Enters Top 10 Highest-Grossing Movies in Global Box Office

Michele Schwartz | 05 April, 2018, 01:51

"Black Panther" which was released only two months ago, is set to take the third spot from "Titanic" which has a domestic chart at $659.2 million with its $652.5 million in the coming weeks. That makes Black Panther the No. 4 movie ever in the U.S.

According to Variety, the movie also toppled Disney's Frozen to become the 10th highest grossing movie of all time globally.

One of the enduring stories throughout Black Panther's box office climb has also been the strength of its domestic showing, which splits about 50/50 with its global earnings, while most blockbusters earn more internationally than they do in North America. As the film nears the end of its run in theaters, the movie is expected to rake in an additional $30 to $40 million worldwide, which will push the film's gross sales to $1.3 billion.

Once the superhero flick surpasses the 11-time Oscar-winning James Cameron classic, it will need another $100 million to meet the next movie in line, Avatar, which earned a whopping $760.6 million domestically.

Based on Forbes' statistics, the Ryan Coogler-directed film is on track to dethroning Titanic to become the No. 3 highest-earning movie in the country.

Boseman's Black Panther first appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, but the new film is his first stand-alone release in the current franchise.

Upcoming actor Michael B Jordan plays T'Chaka's exiled adversary, Erik Millmonger: while starlet Lupita Nyong'o also features as part of of the young king's personal guard.
