LOS ANGELES — Marvel’s superhero blockbuster ‘Black Panther’ has sailed past ‘Titanic’ to become the third-highest grossing US theatrical release of all time.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther, having grossed around $661 million in its incredible box office run, has narrowly edged the ship-sinking epic out, cementing its place as the third highest-grossing US theatrical release of all time.
With a domestic total of $659.3 million, the Ryan Coogler-directorial is behind ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ ($936.7 million) and ‘Avatar’ ($760.5 million), not adjusted for inflation.
Black Panther, ever since it was released in February, has been breaking records left and right.
The Marvel movie had the second-largest second weekend ever at the domestic box office, unadjusted for inflation, as well as the highest-grossing Tuesday in MCU history. It’s also now the top-grossing superhero film of all time at the domestic box office.
Worldwide, ‘Black Panther’ has earned a whopping $1.29 billion and currently stands as the tenth highest grossing film at the global box office.
The film, which is Marvel’s first to be directed by an African-American, took only 26 days for it to crack $1 billion at the global box office.Follow @gorkhapost
