Official: 'Black Panther' Becomes Just The 3rd Movie To Make $700M In The United States

This weekend, Black Panther hit another huge milestone.

It has become just the third film to cross the $700 million mark at the U.S. box office.

This all comes in just six months after release and while the film is still in select theaters despite being available for home release.

The only two other films to make this milestone are Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($760.5 million) and Avatar ($936.7 million).   

What’s more noteworthy is the latest Marvel smash, Avengers: Infinity War, is unlikely to reach that mark, leaving Black Panther with this sole distinction.

Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright and Winston Duke, with Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis.

The film is directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Jeffrey Chernov and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. Ryan Coogler and Joe Robert Cole wrote the screenplay.
