Marvel'sBlack Panther has continued its record-setting big-screen run, with the film hitting the magic mark of $1 billion globally in only 26 days. Its $521 million in USA sales puts it among the 10 highest-grossing releases domestically, and global sales are expected to surpass $500 million this weekend, Disney said in an emailed statement.
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. It's also the 16th Walt Disney movie and 33rd film ever to take home that much cash worldwide.
Internationally, Black Panther will pass the $500 million mark this weekend, bolstered by an impressive debut in its final market, China, where it opened March 9 with a first day estimate of $22 million and early indications of a second day in the $27 million range. "Avatar" and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" now hold the one and two spots, with $50.3 million and $42.4 million respectively.
Black Panther has reached yet another plateau. In fact, it's on the verge of having the third-highest fourth weekend of all time.
Numbers like this were surely played a part in Marvel's decision to green light the Black Panther sequel, somewhere in their upcoming roster of projects. While he wouldn't go into specifics, he did reveal that Marvel has "ideas and a pretty solid direction" on where they want to take the second movie.
