Black Panther Becomes Third Highest Earning Movie In American History

Black Panther had another big weekend, earning an additional $8.4m in its eighth weekend of release for a total U.S. box office haul of $665.3m, according to ComScore.

That puts it ahead of 1997’s Titanic ($659.4m, not adjusted for inflation) and behind only Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936.7m) and Avatar ($760.5m) in the U.S. market, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Internationally, Black Panther‘s $1.3bn in gross box office receipts launches it in the global Top 10, displacing Frozen.

The Disney-Marvel super hero movie also notched a third milestone, Variety reports: Black Panther will be the first movie shown in Saudi Arabia when its 35-year cinema ban ends on April 18.
