'Black Panther' Passes The $500-Million Mark At The Box Office

'Black Panther' Passes The $500-Million Mark At The Box OfficeThis weekend, Marvel Studio’s blockbuster “Black Panther” made another $65 million. The film has now raked in over $500 million after just 17 days in theaters, making it the 10th highest-domestic-grossing movie in history. The film is sure to eclipse the ninth spot on the list, 2017′s “Beauty and the Beast,” which made $504 million domestically. The superhero film could even pass “The Avengers,” which made $623 million domestically in 2012 and is the highest-grossing Marvel film of all time. It brought in $242 million domestically in its four-day opening weekend — just behind “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Those numbers make “Black Panther” the fifth largest opening of all time, and the top February opening weekend.
