Black Panther has become a phenomenon since its very successful release, continuing to make waves in the U.S. market. The Marvel movie is now the third film in history to make $700 million in the U.S. box office. Previous films that have achieved this are Avatar and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Since releasing in February, Black Panther has already earned over $1 billion, making it one of the most successful films of all time. It is also the second most successful film this year, behind Avengers: Infinity War, where members of Black Panther make appearances.
“Black Panther totaled a stunning $605.4 million in its first 31 days,” the New York Daily News states. “It has passed Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($619.8 million) for sixth place and The Avengers ($623.4 million) for fifth place Jurassic World at $652.3 million for fourth place and Titanic at $659 million for third place.”
The film has inspired a possible sequel and spin-off discussion which might happen in the near future. Director Ryan Coogler also presented the idea of making a women-led spin-off of the movie.
