BLACK PANTHER CROSSES ONE BILLION DOLLAR MARK
After its release 26 days ago, Marvel's 'Black Panther' has crossed the $1 billion dollar mark and the fifth Marvel film to do so joining the ranks of “The Avengers,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Iron Man 3,” and “Captain America: Civil War.”
So far it has grossed $521 million domestically, making it the ninth-highest release of all time. In its fourth weekend, “Black Panther” is heading for a $40 million-plus weekend, which would make it the No. 2 superhero release of all time over “The Dark Knight’s” $535 million. It would also give “Black Panther” the third-highest fourth weekend of all time, taking the title from “The Avengers” with $36.7 million.
