Black Panther tops fifth-straight weekend box office, Creates History


    Black Panther

    Ryan Coogler’s comic-book sensation Black Panther on Sunday became the first film since James Cameron’s 2009 smash to top the weekend box office five straight weekends.

    Film has just achieved something that had occurred only twice before in two decades.

    The only previous films to win five straight weekends in the past 20 years are 2009’s “Avatar” and 1999’s “The Sixth Sense.” “Titanic,” from 1997, holds the record, which seems unbreakable as it reigned for 15 straight weekends, according to Box Office Mojo.

    “Black Panther” is the year’s biggest release by a long shot, having grossed $605 million domestically and $1.18 billion worldwide.The U.S. box-office total of “Avatar” may be out of reach, but “Titanic,” on the other hand, could be in striking distance for the Wakandan king.
