Black Panther Grossed Over $1.0 Billion Worldwide
“Black Panther” has surpassed $1 billion at the worldwide box office, challenging industry norms about films with black casts.

The film is now the United States’ ninth domestically highest-grossing film of all time, and had the second-largest four-day domestic opening weekend. “Black Panther” brought in $242 million in the U.S. over Presidents Day weekend, behind the $288 million “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” made when it opened in 2015.
