Black Panther swims past Titanic at the domestic box office

09 April 2018

Avatar finished with $760.5 million in the USA while Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens ended its run with an insane $936.6 million.

Black Panther has earned 659.3 million dollars in the domestic market.

In by MoviePass (and its majority owner Helios and Matheson Analytics), "Black Panther" was listed as the service's highest-selling movie with over 1 million tickets sold (in the period since August, when MoviePass drastically lowered its price). The movie is now sitting right around $661 million before the rest of the weekend's take, but that was all that was necessary to bypass Titanic.

Black Panther 2 is (obviously) a-go and Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, and Winston Duke will all reprise their Black Panther roles in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.

Black Panther was written and directed by a black man and the cast is nearly entirely black, save for the charmingly out-of-place hobbits Martin Freeman and Andy Serkis.

"Black Panther", which stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o is the 18th film in the superhero movie franchise dubbed the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It looks like it's unlikely to step up and push the mass-hallucination that is Avatar off its perch, due to mathematics, but at this stage there's also compelling evidence that Black Panther can do... anything. The film has sailed past Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet starrer "Titanic".
