'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.

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.
