Three weeks after the release of Marvel’s Black Panther, the film is still breaking records at the box office. The Ryan Coogler-directed movie has now officially passed the $1 billion mark at the global box office. It took only 26 days to accomplish the feat.
Black Panther is only the 33rd movie to gross $1 billion. It’s the 16th Disney produced movie to reach this milestone, and the fifth Marvel film to do so, joining The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, and Captain America: Civil War.
The film has grossed $521 million domestically, the ninth-best release of all time. In its fourth weekend, Black Panther is on pace for over $40 million, which would make it the second highest grossing superhero release of all time after The Dark Knight's $535 million.
It would also give Black Panther the third-highest fourth weekend of all time, replacing The Avengers which grossed $36.7 million. Avatar and Star Wars: The Force Awakens currently hold the one and two spots, with $50.3 million and $42.4 million.
After a $20 million opening in China, Black Panther is on pace for $500 million Internationally.
