On Friday, "Black Panther" hit $659.2 million, just shy of "Titanic", which grossed $659.4 million back in 1997.

Marvel knew they had something big when Black Panther turned in the studio's biggest opening week ever, trouncing the opening numbers of 2012's The Avengers, which it then surpassed again a month later, becoming the highest-grossing superhero movie.

In by MoviePass (and its majority owner Helios and Matheson Analytics), "Black Panther" was listed as the service's highest-selling movie with over 1 million tickets sold (in the period since August, when MoviePass drastically lowered its price).

According to comScore, the industry's leader in collecting box office data, the Marvel flick grossed a grand total of 665,355,740 in the US, which passed James Cameron's flick Titanic to become America's third highest-grossing film of all time. That movie, also by Cameron, grossed $760 million. If you have any good ideas, put it in the movie you're making.

The movie also became one of the most profitable at the global box office in cinema history, after its revenues touched more than $1.27 billion. In 2015, 2016 and 2017, the top 10 movies raked in between 32% and 35% of total box office, comScore said.

Black Panther is set to play for five days in Riyadh and will be swiftly followed by Avengers: Infinity War, which is being given a day-and-date release on April 26.
