'Black Panther' hits $1 billion mark at global box office

Director Ryan Coogler's "Black Panther" has gone on to generate over $1 BILLION in box office revenue worldwide.

Going into this weekend, Black Panther has grossed more than $520 million in domestic box office sales, making it the ninth-highest grossing domestic release of all time.

Only four other Marvel movies have grossed over a billion dollars - The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, and Captain America: Civil War.

T'Challa isn't just the king of Wakanda.

The news of the huge Box Office earnings comes after Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige confirmed that a sequel to Black Panther was in place with a story that is already reportedly "solid". And it's expected to pass $500M in global sales over the weekend.

Also, Iran's ambassador to Britain, Hamid Baeidnejad, tweeted that the assailants were "advocates of the Shirazi cult" and had replaced Iran's national flag with that of their group.

For some films it's taken several months to reach the $1B milestone, but "Panther" did it in less than one month: 26 days.

"Black Panther" is expected to win the weekend with $40-41 million, among the best ever totals for a fourth weekend. "Avatar" and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" now hold the one and two spots, with $50.3 million and $42.4 million respectively.

"BTW, 'Black Panther's" opening in China is looking like a weekend opening in the high-$60M to low-$70M range.

The entire cast of Black Panther was outstanding but there were two characters who really stole the scenes: Shuri and Okoye.

The Ryan Coogler-directed film stars Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
