Black Panther Beats Frozen to Become 10th Biggest Movie in History

Record breaking Black Panther has broken yet another box office record as it toppled Jurassic World in the US box office takings

That makes Black Panther the No. 4 movie ever in the U.S. And, globally it passed Frozen's $1,276.5M to step into the Top Ten movies of all time.

Black Panther's box office success continues as the film became the fourth highest-grossing film domestically, besting Jurassic World's $652.3 million with a domestic tally of $652.5 million. 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.

The movie features Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, who on his return home as king of Wakanda, a fictional country, found his sovereignty challenged by a long-time adversary thereby setting in conflict of global consequences. The film is now the highest grossing superhero movie of all time in the United States, and the highest grossing solo superhero film worldwide.

"Star War: The Force Awakens" is the all-time leader on the domestic list at $936 million, followed by "Avatar" with $760 million.

Black Panther has hit another box office milestone that places it in some elite company.

The superhero film with the nearly all-black cast was a hit from the get-go: it held on to the number one spot at the USA box office for five consecutive weeks after its release on February 16.

With Avengers: Infinity War opening in just a few short weeks, and Ant-Man and the Wasp to follow in the summer, it would seem that 2018 is going to be an incredible year for Disney, Marvel Studios, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
