"Black Panther" had its earnings only fall by 41% in its, quite frankly, astonishing third week at the box-office. It made $65.7 million, the third highest third weekend total ever. After only 17 since its release, “Black Panther” has grossed $501 million domestically. 
The film is now the 10th highest grossing movie of all time and is aiming to surpass “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” ($619M).
Despite grossing nearly $900 million globally, “Black Panther” seems to be a domestic hit more than worldwide: 55.8% Of its worldwide gross is coming from the United States. According to Rodrigo Perez over at The Playlist, "All Marvel films usually skew in and around, say, 63% international vs. 37% domestic. In fact, the last time a Marvel film’s worldwide total favored domestic percentages was “Iron Man 2” in 2010, and even then it was only a 51/49% split."
Despite my reservations about the film, I can't help but cheer"Black Panther.” The enormity of what this could mean for black cinema, African-American filmmakers, diversity, is almost unexplainable. Never have we witnessed such a story of success through African-American cinema at the Box-Office before.
