That's an important number, because it represents the domestic gross of James Cameron's "Titanic", and will propel "Black Panther" to become North America's third-biggest domestic movie in Hollywood history.

The latest broken record: Black Panther has passed the once-unsinkable Titanic.

Marvel's "Black Panther" is a box-office phenomenon and has already reached $1 billion worldwide after just a month in theaters.

In by MoviePass (and its majority owner Helios and Matheson Analytics), "Black Panther" was listed as the service's highest-selling movie with over 1 million tickets sold (in the period since August, when MoviePass drastically lowered its price).

"The movie has also revealed, explored and wrestled with the complicated relationship that exists between Africans and Africans of the diaspora due to the effects of slavery and colonisation", he added.

Black Panther - starring Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya and Michael B. Jordan - sits just behind Star Wars: The Last Jedi on the global list, which is in ninth place with $1.33 billion.

There's no stopping "Black Panther", which remains as true at the box office as it does in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Best Picture victor starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio has amassed $2.2 billion worldwide across its various theatrical runs, while Black Panther trails with an estimated $1.3 billion through Sunday.

The Disney and Marvel superhero film stars Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa/Black Panther alongside Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B Jordan, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis.
