‘Black Panther’ Sinks ‘Titanic’ to Become Third Highest Grossing Film in North America

Black Panther dominance at the box office is winding down, but it’s still doing major numbers for Disney.

The Ryan Coogler flick has made $665 million at the domestic box office since and has surpassed Titanic as the third-highest grossing movie in North America, according to Box Office Mojo.

Black Panther now sits behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avatar as the highest earners at the box office.

The Marvel film has made nearly $1.3 billion worldwide and has become a cultural phenomenon since its February release.

Despite it sinking Titanic domestically, Black Panther still has a long way to go before it tops the James Cameron movie globally.

Titanic is the second-highest grossing movie of all time with $2.1 billion at the global box office.
