Black Panther has been out for over a month now, but the Marvel Studios blockbuster is still making an insane amount of money.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Black Panther retained the top spot yet again with an estimated $27 million. This beats competition from newcomers Tomb Raider ($23.5 million) and I Can Only Imagine ($17.1 million). Black Panther is the first comic book movie to stay at #1 for five weekends in a row, and it’s the first movie to ever do it since Avatar.
Black Panther is now at $605.4 million in North America and $1.182 billion worldwide. It is expected to pass The Avengers as the highest-grossing superhero movie of all time domestically, while it will soon pass Iron Man 3 to become Marvel’s biggest non-Avengers title worldwide. And nothing’s stopping it at this point.
Stay tuned for more box office updates as we have them.
