'Black Panther' Tops $1.2B WW & Pushes Disney Past $1B At International Box Office

Marvel pictures usually farewell in the movie sector and Black Panther is no exception. James Cameron's Avatar was the last film to sit in first place at the USA box office for at least five weekends, earning that honor for seven weeks in 2009 and 2010. Box office analysts who spoke with TheWrap project the highly anticipated "Avengers: Infinity War" to gross at least $700 million domestic.

Black Panther has indeed become the highest grossing Marvel film of all time in the United States and considering the enormous vault of kickass films the studio has produced in the last decade, that is no small feat. The film is presently number six on the list. This weekend it reached $630.9 million domestically, easily passing The Avengers' record gross of $623.3 million (via Box Office Mojo).

Plus, the current popularity of "Black Panther" has further stoked excitement for the third "Avengers" team-up, which should especially challenge the main franchise's predecessors at the global box office.

Kansas State was denied its attempt to return to the Final Four for the first time since 1964. "His point was well taken". For Saturday night's South Regional final, the Ramblers' elder statesmen are sitting immediately behind the Loyola bench.

The consensus of Tomatometer reads, "Black Panther elevates superhero cinema to thrilling new heights while telling one of the MCU's most absorbing stories - and introducing some of its most fully realized characters". The film stars Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis.

As the film continues to attract moviegoers throughout the world, "Black Panther" is approaching the record-holders in the top spots: "The Avengers", which ranks as #1 with a worldwide gross of $1.518 billion, and its sequel, "Avengers: Age of Ultron", at #2 with $1.405 billion worldwide.
