Black Panther has had some school breaks, but played in a more standard time of year when box office sales are historically slower.

It also became the third fastest film to reach $500 million domestically.

Black Panther has also grossed about $396.6 overseas, including an estimated $56.2 million this weekend, putting its worldwide total on the doorstep of $900 million.

The release from Marvel and Disney brought in $65.7 million domestically this weekend, easily outpacing new releases "Red Sparrow" and "Death Wish", according to studio estimates Sunday. The highly praised Marvel film topped new action releases Red Sparrow and Death Wish to remain at No. 1.

Time Warp: Rita Moreno Brings Back Her 'West Side Story' Oscars Dress
On Sunday night, nearly six decades later, the Hollywood icon attended the 2018 Oscars wearing the same exact gown. The one shore wore in the '60s had straps, however, so she updated it with some minor alterations.

The movie starring Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan broke multiple box office records too, stealing the record for the largest opening for an African-American director. Take note that the movie will have to amass at least $623 million in lifetime gross in order to dethrone The Avengers (2012) from the fifth rung in the ladder. In fact, seven of the top eleven blockbusters are from the Mouse House which is already planning out its box office dominance over the years ahead with an impressive calendar of titles it just announced leading into 2023. "Death Wish" was directed by Eli Roth, the film stars Bruce Willis, Vincent D'Onofrio, and Elisabeth Shue. The 20th Century Fox release was probably hoping for at least $20 million here, so it's a slight disappointment.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at US and Canadian theaters, according to comScore.

Finishing off the top 5 this week is last weeks is Peter Rabbit which finds its self at 5. Also opening in limited release this weekend was Sony Pictures Classics' Foxtrot, which earned $36,786 from four theaters for a $9,197 per-screen average, and Hannover's Death House, which took in $10,295 from one theater. "Lady Bird" (A24) followed with $48.3 million. Black Panther came storming out of the gates with a whopping $242 million during the 4-day Presidents Day weekend and made its way up the charts from there. In seventh is "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle", which added $4.5 million in its 11th weekend and is nearing $400 million domestic with a current total of $393 million.
