Black Panther continues its climb up the box office charts. The Disney/Marvel superhero film has officially now crossed two big box office milestones: Domestically, with a box office tally of $652.5M, it officially surpassed Jurassic World ($652.3M) to become the No. 4 movie of all-time. And, globally it passed Frozen’s $1,276.5M to step into the Top Ten movies of all time. It has grossed $1.279.2M to date. And with $626.7M under its belt internationally, it is also the highest grossing superhero film that features a solo superhero.
Both domestically and around the globe, Black Panther has been the Wakanda wonder since releasing on Feb. 16. It opened domestically to a whopping $202M and by mid-March was already at the $600M domestically. It accomplished a feat that another Marvel Universe film also had not achieved — it was No. 1 at the box office for five consecutive weeks after its release. The last film to spend five weeks in a row at the top was Avatar, which ruled for seven weeks in 2009-10.
Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman and Daniel Kaluuya (Oscar nominated from Get Out). The film was directed by Ryan Coogler.
The Top Five markets around the world for Black Panther are China with $104.5M, the U.K. ($65.2M), South Korea ($42.8M), Brazil ($35.4M) and France ($31.1M).
