Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Panther’ Crosses $1 Billion Worldwide

Marvel Studios’ Black Panther crossed the $1 billion mark at the global box office on March 10, its 26th day of release. With $561.8 million domestically and $518.2 million internationally through March 11 for a combined $1.08 billion, the film is now the seventh highest-grossing film of all time in the U.S. and ranks at No. 21 globally, just a month into its release.

Black Panther is the 16th release from The Walt Disney Studios to reach the $1 billion milestone and the fifth to do so in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, joining The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3 and Captain America: Civil War.

The film continues to break records domestically and now stands as the No. 2 Super-Hero release of all time behind only The Avengers. Having kicked off its run over President’s Day weekend with $202 million in its first three days and $242.1 million over its first four, Black Panther is also the No. 1 February debut and February release of all time. It amassed the highest Monday of all time ($40.1 million on February 19), and the second-highest Sunday of all time ($60 million on February 18) in its opening week.

Boasting a rare A+ CinemaScore from audiences and an exceptional 97-percent Certified Fresh aggregate critics score on RottenTomatoes, the film’s record-setting opening weekend was followed by the No. 2 second weekend of all time, earning $111.6 million and becoming one of only four films to surpass the $100 million mark in its second weekend. The film’s phenomenal momentum also drove Black Panther to the highest non-holiday third weekend ever, with $66.3 million domestic. It has held the No. 1 spot at the box office for four consecutive weekends.

Black Panther crossed the $500 million mark internationally this weekend, bolstered by an impressive estimated $66.5 million debut in its final market, China, where it opened March 9.
