Black Panther makes history , hits $1 Billion2 min read
That day has come. We all knew that since that the huge opening weekend but this is really historic.
Wakanda forever. After twenty four days Ryan Coogler’s historic movie has hit the magic figure of $1 Billion worldwide. It is the first film of 2018 to hit this mark. It is also the first superhero movie to cross that landmark in two years.(Captain America : Civil War being the last one)
The film reached the mark by an estimated $22 million opening day total in China. The film has exceeded expectations since the opening weekend numbers came out.
Black Panther has grossed $521 million so far in the North American box office which is more than fifty percent of its total gross so far. This is an exception as the last two superhero movies which made more than 1 billion garnered most of their money from the overseas market.
Quite a few records have been and will be broken by the movie. For example it is the first superhero origin movie ever to hit the Billion mark. This movie has also helped the Marvel Cinematic Universe cross $14 Billion. Kevin Fiege has already stated that the sequel is absolutely happening (as if it needed any confirming). So now we look forward to the next one and oh boy the king of Wakanda will have his hands full. Have you seen this guy?
Yeah, its intense. How many times have you seen Black Panther? Comment below.
