The Marvel blockbuster broke yet another record on Saturday, exceeding James Cameron's 1997 epic picture "Titanic" whilst the next highest grossing movie of all time from the US box office. Due to these impressive indicators, the picture ended up in third place in the list of TOP 10 grossing films, behind only "Star wars" and "Avatar". And the Internet seems to agree.
On its eighth weekend, Black Panther (2018) surpasses James Cameron's classic drama Titanic (1997) in the local box office. The company has plans to open 40 cinemas in more than 12 cities across Saudi Arabia over the next five years and we're guessing the 32 million people who live there will be lining up to see King T'Challah in all his glory.
On Saturday, The Ryan Coogler-directed film starring Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan and Danai Gurira finished with a domestic total of $665.3 million which easily passed "Titanic" which sits at $659.5 million.
Black Panther will also lift Saudi Arabia's 35-year-long cinema ban on April 18th.
Marvel's "Black Panther" is still clawing its way into the record books.
Adjusted for inflation, Titanic's $1.2 billion domestic total is the fifth highest in history; Black Panther is No. 34.

If you're keeping track of the news in the last decade or so, that does mean Disney technically owns the top three highest-grossing films of all time in the United States.
