According to Variety, the movie, now in its seventh weekend in release, has made $652.5 million at the North American Box Office and $1.28 billion globally. It accomplished a feat that another Marvel Universe film also had not achieved - it was No. 1 at the box office for five consecutive weeks after its release. This is undoubtedly the biggest feather for the Wakandan cap.

Since its release back in February, Black Panther has had an fantastic run at the box office, breaking records that haven't been broken since Avatar in 2009.

Boseman is reprising his role as Black Panther/T'Challa in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. It's safe to say that Disney is doing very well financially, considering that half of the movies on the Top 10 board are Disney-owned movies from the past 6 years, both before and after Black Panther overtook Frozen.

He will also feature in next month's crossover release Avengers: Infinity War, as well as its now untitled sequel, which will be out next year.

"Black Panther" is only a couple of ticket sales shy from taking over "Titanic" at number 3. There is a threat of war on the horizon, and a coup lying in wait for the throne.

When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakandan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war.

"Black Panther", directed by Ryan Coogler, carries an estimated $200 million production cost and grossed $427 million on its first four-days, shattering box-office records, and has continued to break new records.
