Within 17 days, Black Panther exceeds $500m mark in theatres

This weekend, Marvel Studio’s blockbuster, Black Panther, made another $65m.

The film has now raked in over $500m after just 17 days in theatres, making it the
10th highest-domestic-grossing movie in history.
The film is sure to eclipse the ninth spot on the list, 2017′s Beauty and the
Beast, which made $504m domestically.
The superhero film could even pass The Avengers, which made $623m domestically
in 2012 and is the highest-grossing Marvel film of all time.
The film has already notched several box office feats. It brought in $242m
domestically in its four-day opening weekend just behind Star Wars: The Force
Awakens.
Those numbers make Black Panther the fifth largest opening of all time, and thtop
February opening weekend.
With a black director Ryan Coogler at the helm and a nearly all-black cast, Black
Panther is striking a chord with fans, especially African-American audiences.
With a 97 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the film is a hit with critics as well.
The question now isn’t whether or not a sequel will happen, but rather, how many?
