According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film accomplished the feat on Saturday after landing somewhere north of The Avengers previous record-holding figure of $624.3 million at the domestic box office. Since then, T'Challa and crew have broken down a slew of other barriers including Fandango's presale ticket record.
Nevertheless, Black Panther is only one of seven films to ever earn $600 million or more domestically (it now ranks No. 6 on the list). It will finish out this weekend with approximately $630 million to The Avengers $623 million.
When going down that road, "Black Panther" still has a little more work to do. Such a take-home will crush Black Panther, set to gross between $17 million and $18 million in the U.S.More news: USA stocks open lower after Fed's rate-hike decision
