Marvel is getting a lot of attention today when launching the new trailer for Avengers: Infinity War but let's not forget that there is already a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie that is being played in theaters. Black Panther is entering its fifth weekend, but it's still a powerhouse at the box office. Last week, Black Panther joined the exclusive group of films to cross the $ 1 billion mark globally, but it's even better, because the independent adventure of T & # 39; Challa is now officially One of the 20 highest grossing films All the time.
At the time of writing, and as revealed by Box Office Mojo, Black Panther transported approximately 1.12 billion dollars worldwide, making it the 18th highest grossing film ever, bypbading Transformers: Age of Extinction and Skyfall and just below The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King . To be clear, this does not take inflation into account. If I did, I suspect that Black Panther would be lower on the list and would not be part of the Top 20. Regardless, this is an impressive achievement, but the fun might not stop there. Even with the release of his best-selling partner Tomb Raider and A Wrinkle in Time entering his second weekend, Black Panther hopes to continue to act strongly this end of week, and for the time The theatrical performance of Black Panther is finally finished, there is a clear possibility that I can advance further up the list, going through Return of the King and maybe even Transformers: Dark of the Moon .
Since it was announced as part of phase 3 of the MCU in 2014, Black Panther was one of Marvel's most anticipated films, especially after T & # 39; Challa debuted at ] Captain America: Civil War . Fast forward to now, not only Black Panther has proven to be a critical success, but also one of Marvel's biggest commercial successes, as it is the studio's highest grossing history film, the second most blockbuster-bademble the film ( Iron Man 3 being # 1) and the fifth highest grossing film in general. But Black Panther can now also be remembered as one of the best Hollywood movies of all time, although like any of the other lower entries in the Top 20, it does not rule out the possibility that someday a even more could appear a movie that could boost the Black Panther clbadification .
One thing Black Panther is also its effect on pop culture in general. In addition to having a significant cultural impact for its almost black main cast (the first for a superhero movie), the film's main setting, Wakanda, also captivated the audience, to the point that many people joked called Wacounda, Illinois and He searched the hotel for websites for Wakanda, only to be disappointed that it does not really exist. Black Panther may be the newest chapter of the growing MCU, but it's safe to say it will be remembered as one of the most exclusive entries in the franchise.
