Disney/Marvel’s Black Panther has continued to dominate the worldwide box office as it is on the verge to cross the $1Billion landmark on a third leading domestic weekend, after amassing an estimated $65.7M.

With a 3rd leading domestic weekend, and as overseas turnstiles tip towards $400M, the Wakanda wonder has grossed an estimated $897.7M globally through Sunday.

The breakdown is $501.1M in North America and $396.6M at the international box office.

That was the third biggest gross of all-time for any film in its third weekend of release behind only Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($90.2M) and Avatar ($68.5M) which both got help from the potent New Year’s holiday at those times.

It is understood that the decline for the Marvel’s superhero flick this weekend was only 41%

When the Ryan Coogler-helmed Black Panther crosses the $900M global mark on Monday, it will become the 5th Marvel Cinematic Universe title to reach the milestone, after The Avengers, Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Iron Man 3 and Captain America: Civil War.

For T’Challa, the $1Bn worldwide box office mark lies ahead next weekend.

On the all-time domestic blockbuster chart, the Wakanda hit has risen to number ten and is currently sandwiched in between fellow Disney titles Beauty and the Beast and Finding Dory.

In fact, seven of the top eleven blockbusters are from the Mouse House which is already planning out its box office dominance over the years ahead with an impressive calendar of titles it just announced leading into 2023.

These include ten untitled Marvel films which most certainly would include one, if not two Black Panther sequels.

Next weekend T’Challa takes on China and should take the win with advance ticket sales that have been tracking at the level of Spider-Man: Homecoming.
