Six weeks after its release, following Friday’s night total, Black Panther has raked in over $624 million at the domestic box office since its February 16th arrival. The Avengers previously held the record with $623 million in 2012, the Hollywood Reporter writes.
By the end of the weekend, Black Panther will likely sit at Number Five on the all-time (not adjusted for inflation) domestic box office list, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Avatar, Titanic and Jurassic World; this weekend, Black Panther will have jumped over The Avengers and Star Wars: The Last Jedi on the all-time list according to Box Office Mojo.
