This weekend the film passed director James Cameron's "Titanic" becoming the third highest-grossing USA film of all time. It now ranks behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936.7 million) and Avatar ($760.5 million). And the Internet seems to agree.
Making over $1 billion globally, Black Panther is now the 10th highest-grossing movie of all time worldwide and fourth overall within the US, surpassing the likes of Marvel's The Avengers and Jurassic World. The victor of the weekend was the horror movie A Quiet Place, which opened with $50 million.
"Black Panther" will be exhibited in a theater that can accommodate 620 people at the King Abdullah Financial Center in Riyadh, and the American operator AMC has also scheduled a special event for the historic opening.

This was also seen in the third set and the German was again broken by Nadal whose shot selection was of the highest quality. France will host the winners of the tie between Spain and Germany, from 14-16 September, for a place in the Davis Cup final.
Adjusted for inflation, Titanic's $1.2 billion domestic total is the fifth highest in history; Black Panther is No. 34. It holds a 97% rating at Rotten Tomatoes, which is the highest for any superhero movie ever. The Ryan Coogler-directed film earned $8.4 million at the box office over the three-day weekend.
We'll see if "Black Panther" can remain at the top of MoviePass' list, though.
Marvel's ground breaking film - which has been hailed not only for Coogler's exceptional world building and layered story but also for its virtually all-black cast of superstars - overtook Marvel's "Avengers" to become the biggest-selling superhero film of all time.
