The list of broken records keeps getting longer and longer for the superhero movie, as Marvel’s “Black Panther” has officially become the third highest grossing movie in the US.
The news of this new record arrives after more than five weeks since the movie’s debut in cinemas last February.
According to official data by the Hollywood Reporter, Marvel’s “Black Panther” has earned a grand domestic total of $659.3 million over the weekend, only falling behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936.7 million) and Avatar (760.5 million).
The third place in the list was previously occupied by James Cameron’s 1997 blockbuster Titanic, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
Ryan Coogler’s work, as reported not long ago by Rollingstone, is also the highest-grossing superhero movie of all times, a record previously held by another integrant part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Avengers.
As we reported in a previous article, the next installment in the series is Avengers: Infinity War, out on April 27 and already expected to be another massive success by Marvel Studios.
