Black Panther Beats Titanic To Become The Third Top-Grossing Film In The U.S

Black Panther Beats Titanic To Become The Third Top-Grossing Film In The U.S

by | 10th April 2018

“Black Panther” is still making history as it has turned up as the third best title of all time in the U.S, surpassing “Titanic.”

 

The Ryan Coogler-directed movie sits behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936.7 million) and Avatar ($760.5 million). Black Panther landed at a domestic total of $659.3 million on Friday and went over the $659.5 million grossed by Titanic on Saturday. These numbers have not been adjusted for inflation. Black Panther currently has a domestic total of $665.4 million.

 

So far, Black Panther has grossed $1.29 billion, ranking as the No. 10 title of all time, worldwide.

 

According to Forbes, Black Panther earned an additional $8.4 million this past weekend domestically and at this rate, it would take Black Panther 11-12 weeks at best to earn the $95 million needed to beat Avatar at No.2. A feat which is highly unlikely.

 

Regardless, Black Panther holds the 11th-biggest eighth weekend ever, according to Forbes. It’s also just barely behind $1.3 billion worldwide mark at $1.2999 billion, but it’s still the 10th-biggest global grosser.
