It was Cameron's own Avatar that finally bested the box office record in 2009, and then Star Wars: The Force Awakens stole the title in 2015.

Black Panther has earned 659.3 million dollars in the domestic market.

MoviePass told Business Insider that Marvel's "Black Panther" has been its best-selling movie since it dropped its price in August.

The Ryan Coogler-directed flick surpassed Titanic on Saturday to become the third highest-grossing movie ever at the North American box office, according The Hollywood Reporter.

Nearly two months after debuting in theaters, "Black Panther" has officially sunk the $695 million box office record set by "Titanic", according to Friday's box office numbers.

"Black Panther" is the cinematic iceberg we've been waiting for.

Almost two months after opening, the Marvel blockbuster continues to rake in revenue at the box office, and The Hollywood Reporter reports that by the end of this weekend the film's domestic gross will exceed $695 million.

"The movie has also revealed, explored and wrestled with the complicated relationship that exists between Africans and Africans of the diaspora due to the effects of slavery and colonisation", he added.

This month, AMC Entertainment will open a theater in the nations capital of Riyadh and Black Panther is scheduled to be the first movie played.

"Titanic" was once king at the box office and it sat as the number one highest grossing domestic film of all time for almost a decade.

It's yet another honor for "Black Panther", which has already broken several box-office records and reached $1 billion globally since coming to theaters last month.
