Films created specifically to retain rights and never released don’t count.

According to boxofficemojo, Black Panther has now reached $700,000,000 at the North American box office. It is the third film to reach this mark (after Avatar and The Force Awakens). I'm surprised to learn that Black Panther is still showing in a few theatres (it made $35000 last weekend).

I'm pretty sure I saw it showing when I went to the movies a few weeks ago. Yeah it's been a while, but if it still brings in money - why not?

Probably makes sense as long as Infinity Wars was playing, too. There's a natural connection between the films, so someone may wish to watch BP before IW.

Good on 'em for the achievement. It deserves it more than the other two films IMO.

Black Panther is a weird outlier in terms of MCU movies in that it's domestic gross is a fair chunk higher than its international gross. I'm not really sure what exactly is driving that. Was it not shown in some countries for some reason?

The movie directly addresses things which are live political issues in the US, and not on the agenda in other places, so it's more topical for the US, which may contribute.

rmsgrey's pretty spot on. In particular, I saw from several African people that they thought it was kinda self-defeating of its message and/or disrespectful/appropriating by virtue of the fact that it was using Africa primarily as a stage for addressing experiences/narrative specific to African Americans and also the way the Wakanda was a mishmash of entirely unrelated cultures from every corner of Africa (and even beyond) without really any attempt to make the overall culture feel coherent to those familiar with the cultures elements were taken from (also the alphabet was extra bad, it was essentially just Tifinaɣ, a script from North Africa, albeit with letters assigned random unrelated values).

This was very much a film for African Americans so that it was disproportionately popular in the US

The way that I would express that is that the film did very well overseas, but extraordinarily well in North America.

It is one of the biggest of the MCU films in terms of overseas box office: the only films to surpass it in that regard are the three Avengers films, Captain America: Civil War, and Iron Man 3. Given that it is the introductory film for BP, I dare say they were very pleased with its overseas returns.

But it did ridiculously well in North America, making > $700 million. I doubt anyone would have predicted that Black Panther would be the biggest grossing superhero movie ever in the North American market, with not even Infinity War touching it.

I loved every bit of the movie, but especially the soundtracks were out of this world. I have been trying to find out those tracks but to no vail. Anyone got any idea where I can download them for free.

It's a perfectly cromulent number.
