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

Variety reported that the movie got this ranking in the North American Box Office on Monday. Having accumulated $1.279.2 million at the global box office, the latest Marvel Studios movie also entered the list of top ten highest-grossing films worldwide after passing the $1,276.5 million gross of Disney's Frozen.

At the North American office, Black Panther has made $652.5 million and $1.28 billion globally.

Black Panther sits a few million behind the number 9 slot, which is now held by Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Chadwick Boseman is in the role of King T'Challa. As a result, Black Panther will be the first movie shown at the kingdom's first AMC theater, a 620-seat converted concert hall in Riyadh. He is the newly-appointed ruler of the technologically savvy Wakanda and takes over the reins after the death of his father.

It stars Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis among others. It also broke the record of the USA box-office takings which was in the name of "Jurassic World [VIDEO]".

According to the News Agency of Nigria, the blockbuster will soon top "Titanic" for the third spot on the domestic chart at $659.4 million. It opened domestically to a whopping $202M and by mid-March was already at the $600M domestically. It was also No. 1 at the box office for five consecutive weeks after its release.

In China market, the movie raked in $105 million, followed by the U.K with a distant 62 million and South Korea with $42 million.
