As of Monday, Black Panther's earnings in the USA has reached $652.5 million, which is enough to surpass Jurassic World, which held the fourth spot with a domestic total of $652.3 million, Mashable reported. The must-see movie of 2018 has reportedly reached another box office milestone.
The Disney superhero film saw its domestic earnings rise to a mammoth $652.5m (£463.5m), following Monday's ticket sales, making it the fourth-highest earner in U.S. history, beating 2015's Jurassic World's (above Chris Pratt and a raptor in the film) total of $652.3m (£463.3m). It should only take a couple more day to pass $659.4 million, the domestic total for James Cameron's Titanic, now #3 on the all-time US chart. It's safe to say that Disney is doing very well financially, considering that half of the movies on the Top 10 board are Disney-owned movies from the past 6 years, both before and after Black Panther overtook Frozen.
The movie which has a global earning of $1.28 billion, is led by "Star War: The Force Awaken" with its $936 million.
Marvel's Black Panther continues to rewrite the history books with its latest accomplishment.
Boseman's Black Panther first appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, but the new film is his first stand-alone release in the current franchise. In fact, there's a big possibility that Black Panther will soon topple James Cameron's epic, Titanic, to move to the #3 spot on the all-time USA chart.
The star-studded cast features Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Lupita Nyong'o as Nakia, Daniel Kaluuya as W'Kabi, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, Winston Duke as M'Baku and Forest Whitaker as Zuri.
According to reports, the Marvel blockbuster will receive a gala premiere in Riyadh on 18 April as part of a deal done by United States theatre chain AMC that will see 40 cinemas open in Saudi cities over the next five years.
