Earlier that month Black Panther crossed $1 billion in worldwide box office sales, making it the 33rd movie to ever do so, and the fifth within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, Captain America: Civil War).

The Marvel blockbuster broke yet another record on Saturday, surpassing James Cameron's 1997 epic film "Titanic" as the third highest grossing film of all time in the US box office.

Mr Gilbert K. Bouhairie, the Interfaith Coordinator for the Pan African Historical Theatre Project has stated that the Black Panther film, a Hollywood movie, has broken records in the film industry.

"Black Panther" is set to break Saudi Arabia's 35-year cinema ban. That movie, also by Cameron, grossed $760 million.

Globally, Black Panther has grossed 1.29 billion dollars, ranking as the no. 10 title of all time.

Titanic has sunk to the fourth spot to make way for Black Panther on the list of third-highest grossing USA theatrical releases. 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. And who knows if anything will overtake the top spot which belongs to "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", which grossed $936 million in 2015.

According to ComicBook.com, it appears as if Black Panther will stay in third place domestically since it would still take a good bit to bypass the top two films.
