'Black Panther' surpasses 'Titanic' at the box office

'Black Panther' surpasses 'Titanic' at the box office

Black Panther remains the top-earning Marvel release in franchise history and is still bringing in solid numbers at the box office.

Black Panther has broken many records during its first month of existence.

Starring Chad Boseman, the Black Panther movie now grosses over $1.3 billion worldwide, barely eight weeks after it was premiered.

Black Panther's North American takeover is the second movie to helm the honor in two years. And as we've already seen from trailers, T'Challa will be coming back, along with Okoye and Shuri and Wakanda itself.

Jackson's Fury being absent from Black Panther is especially head-turning due to its emphasis on African-American culture and representation, especially in relationship to the Wakandan characters who were untouched by the colonization that so horribly harmed peoples across the African continent.




Black Panther is packaged several ways to ensure fans get the most out of their in-home viewing experience. This includes reissues of the films over the years. Dolby Vision delivers greater brightness and contrast, as well as a fuller palette of rich colors. Together on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc, viewers will fully experience the sights and sounds of Wakanda.

The film - unprecedented in being a big-budget studio tentpole featuring a virtually all-black cast - stars Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa/Black Panther alongside Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis.

As of this point, extras are unknown, but there had better be a commentary by director Ryan Cooglar!

Still flourishing in its eighth week out, Black Panther netted $8.7 million for fourth spot.
