Black Panther is still breaking ground after being in theaters for two months. On Saturday, the Disney-Marvel film locked in another major accomplishment: It surpassed James Cameron's Titanic to become the third top-grossing title of all time at the North American box office.
The Ryan Coogler-directed movie sits behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936.7 million) and Avatar ($760.5 million). Black Panther landed at a domestic total of $659.3 million on Friday and went over the $659.5 million grossed by Titanic on Saturday. These numbers have not been adjusted for inflation. Black Panther currently has a domestic total of $665.4 million.
Black Panther earned an additional $8.4 million this weekend domestically, according to Forbes. At this rate, it would take Black Panther 11-12 weeks at best to earn the $95 million needed beat Avatar at No. 2, which is highly unlikely. Either way, it is safe to say Star Wars: The Force Awakens will continue to hold its No. 1 spot. Regardless, Black Panther holds the 11th-biggest eighth weekend ever, according to Forbes. It's also just barely behind $1.3 billion worldwide mark at $1.2999 billion, but it's still the 10th-biggest global grosser.
Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman appeared in the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live, where he brought T'Challa in for a fantastic Black Jeopardy segment. Watch it here.
