Marvel’s “Black Panther” continues its record-breaking streak, crossing the $1 billion mark at the global box office in just 24 days.
Black Panther became the 33rd movie in box office history to gross $1 billion worldwide, hitting the mark on its opening day in China. The Ryan Coogler directed movie was pushed over the mark by an estimated $22 million opening day total in China, as well as $9.9 million grossed in its fourth week in the U.S. Black Panther hit the billion mark in 24 days, the same amount of time it took “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Captain America: Civil War” to reach it.
The movie currently has a running domestic total of $521 million and $419.5 million in foreign ticket sales. But thanks to a $22 million opening day in China, where Black Panther debuted on March 9 and had enjoyed strong pre-release ticket sales. The Disney-distributed film was able to join an elite club of just 33 movies that have managed to cross the billion dollar mark.
