"Black Panther" Hits $500 Million, Leaving All Others in the Dust

"Black Panther" Hits $500 Million, Leaving All Others in the Dust

Marvel's Black Panther is filled with unforgettable moments, but perhaps none more so than the introduction of Winston Duke as M'Baku.

British actor of Ugandan origin, Daniel Kaluuya who stars in the Marvel film celebrated for its black cast and African superhero story, was nominated for best actor for his role in "Get Out".

Black Panther is scheduled to release in China this week.

Overseas, T'Challa made another $56.2 million, bringing its worldwide total to $396.6 million and global cume to $897.7 million, which is nowhere close to any records, but remember, that it's only Week 3 for the blockbuster hit.

Debuting at two is Jennifer Lawrence's Russian spy thriller Red Sparrow, which opened with $2.5 million (£1.8 million), putting it ahead of movie musical The Greatest Showman, which made $1.7 million (£1.2 million). It's the third fastest film to reach the $500 million plateau.

Another new release, "Death Wish", MGM's reboot of the Charles Bronson action franchise starring Bruce Willis, was third with $13 million.

Death wish is followed by "Game Night", with Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams, who reported $ 10.4 million for its second weekend of operation and 33.2 million since its release two weeks ago. The Fox title has totaled $211.2 million internationally.

Sony's other PG offering Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle continues to be a big hit for all involved as it edges closer to $400 million with another $4.5 million in seventh place.

Greta Gerwig's coming-of-age comedy Lady Bird, which came away empty-handed from Sunday's Oscars, despite earning five nominations, completes the top five with $1.3 million (£936,000).
