Although Black Panther is not at the top of the box office heap, it's still raking in profits after almost two months in theaters. The movie is now sitting right around $661 million before the rest of the weekend's take, but that was all that was necessary to bypass Titanic. Due to these impressive indicators, the picture ended up in third place in the list of TOP 10 grossing films, behind only "Star wars" and "Avatar". The movie has officially surpassed Titanic as the third-highest grossing film of all time in North America as of Saturday.

Overall, Black Panther has so far grossed over $1.3 billion at the worldwide box and remains Marvel's highest domestic-grossing film ever.

The success of "Black Panther" is more impressive, considering it opened February 15.

Carrying the momentum from the last game, Holmes drilled another double, scoring Jioia and placing herself in scoring position. Kimmie Palace provided a pair of hits and Julia Fitzpatrick struck out six batters in four innings for Kent Island (1-3).

Director Ryan Coogler's blockbuster film brought in an estimated $2.3 million at the domestic box office on Friday, and that is just what was needed. The latest broken record: Black Panther has passed the once-unsinkable Titanic.

MoviePass told Business Insider that Marvel's "Black Panther" has been its best-selling movie since it dropped its price in August.

Not the mention that folks are more likely to be drawn when a movie becomes a cultural phenomenon, like "Black Panther" or last year's horror sensation "It".
