Leading the field are 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936.7 million) and another Cameron spectacle, 2009's Avatar ($760.5 million). Check out the Black Panther Blu-ray and Digital trailer below!

The Disney and Marvel Studio blockbuster "Black Panther" has shattered yet another box office record. This has made the movie the fastest rising successes Hollywood box office has ever produced.

The film has made almost $1.3 billion globally since it emerged in mid-February.

The movie, starring Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, and Michael B Jordan earned a cumulative $665 million in the USA and Canada. But thankfully the ride doesn't stop here: the release of Black Panther comes merely a week and a half after the theatrical release of Avengers: Infinity War, which should come as a relief to fans who want to immerse themselves in the newest releases from the MCU. The story of a good man trying to do the right thing in a complex world (with karate, superpowers, and a team of bad-ass ladies at his shoulder) has recently surpassed Titanic to become the third highest grossing film in history.

When accounting for inflation, the superhero film clocks in at No. 34 on the all-time domestic list, according to industry data site Box office Mojo. The film has drawn rave reviews, with a 97 percent Rotten Tomatoes rating.

In third was another new release, Universal's Blockers, at $20.6 million.

Paramount's A Quiet Place - a concept horror-thriller directed by John Krasinski that has very little dialogue - opened to a whopping $50 million, one of the top debuts for a horror title behind last year's It ($123.4 million).
