Black Panther: highest grossing superhero movie in the US


BLACK PANTHER has overtaken The Avengers to become the highest-grossing superhero film at the US box office, taking a total of $630.9m (£443.5m) on its sixth weekend of release.

The record-breaking result, in which Black Panther added an estimated $16.6m to its previous week’s total of $614.3m, came as it was dethroned from its five-week run as the box office No 1, having been overtaken by monster movie Pacific Rim: Uprising, which managed $28m on its debut.

Globally, Black Pantherfinished Sunday with $1.237 billion in ticket sales, surpassing Iron Man 3 ($1.214 billion) to rank as the No. 3 superhero title of all time at the worldwide box office behind The Avengers ($1.518 billion) and Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.405 billion). It's also now the No. 12 highest-grossing pic in history.
