Black Panther Box Office Now Top 10 All-Time Domestically

The actress, well-known for her past activism for black women in film and her vocalness on topics like cultural appropriation, revealed that she recently backed out of Black Panther's casting process for a slightly different but very similar reason.

Rounding out the top tier are Annihilation at No. 6 with $5.7 million, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle at No. 7 with $4.5 million, Fifty Shades Freed at No. 8 with $3.3 million, The Greatest Showman at No. 9 with $2.7 million and Every Day at No. 10 with $1.6 million.

According to Rotten Tomatoes, Black Panther is officially the best-reviewed superhero movies of all time and we have to agree. "Black Panther" is a production of Marvel Studios.

On the all-time domestic blockbuster chart, the Wakanda hit has risen to number ten and is now sandwiched in between fellow Disney titles Beauty and the Beast and Finding Dory.

"Black Panther" continued its record-setting romp this weekend, passing the half-billion-dollar mark in only its third week out in North America as it stayed on track to be one of the highest-grossing films ever, industry analysts said. It's only a matter of time before it beats Beauty and the Beast ($504 million), and Rogue One ($532.1 million) and The Dark Knight ($534.8 million) are clearly in its sights. While everyone assumed Black Panther would be huge, as Marvel continually takes their B and C-level players to A-list box office performances, I don't think anyone expected this performance.

With Panther continuing its dominance, this week's new releases fought an uphill battle for ticket sales. Red Sparrow raked in $17 million at the box office while Death Wish pulled in $13 million. For now though, Marvel should be happy with the critical and commercial success of the film. Filling out the top five were Game Night at $10.7 million and Peter Rabbit with $10 million. As you'll see, there is a massive gap between Black Panther and everything else. It is in 14th place now, as of last weekend. Following its premiere, reactions to the fantasy film were mixed, so it will be interesting to see how the tracking shapes up later in the week.
