Black Panther Beats Frozen to Become 10th Biggest Movie in History

Black Panther Beats Frozen to Become 10th Biggest Movie in History

The movie has already broken the record of the 2015 "Jurassic World" in United States box office haul and is inching towards toppling the record held for more than two decades by the epic "Titanic". Its global earning is around $1.279 bn, and it is now at number 10 on the all-time worldwide chart edging out "Frozen", another product of Disney.

One of the enduring stories throughout Black Panther's box office climb has also been the strength of its domestic showing, which splits about 50/50 with its worldwide earnings, while most blockbusters earn more internationally than they do in North America.

The movie features Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, who on his return home as king of Wakanda, a fictional country, found his sovereignty challenged by a long-time adversary thereby setting in conflict of global consequences.

Boseman's Black Panther first appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2016's Captain America: Civil War, but the new film is his first stand-alone release in the current franchise. He is the newly-appointed ruler of the technologically savvy Wakanda and takes over the reins after the death of his father.

After another successful weekend at the box office, "Black Panther" has officially joined the ranks of the top ten highest-grossing movies of all time. It also stars Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis. It opened domestically to a whopping $202M and by mid-March was already at the $600M domestically.
