Marvel Studios’ "Black Panther" crossed the $1 billion mark at the global box office on March 10, its 26th day of release. With $561.8 million domestically and $518.2 million internationally through March 11 for a combined $1.08 billion, the film is now the seventh highest-grossing film of all time in the U.S. and ranks at No. 21 globally, just a month into its release.

"Black Panther" is the 16th release from The Walt Disney Studios to reach the $1 billion mark and the 5th to do so in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, joining "The Avengers," "Avengers: Age of Ultron," "Iron Man 3" and "Captain America: Civil War."

The film continues to break records domestically and now stands as the No. 2 Super-Hero release of all time behind only "The Avengers." Having kicked off its run over President’s Day weekend with $202 million in its first three days and $242.1 million over its first four, "Black Panther" is also the No. 1 February debut and February release of all time. It amassed the highest Monday of all time ($40.1 million on February 19), and the second-highest Sunday of all time ($60 million on February 18) in its opening week.

Boasting a rare A+ CinemaScore from audiences and an exceptional 97-percent Certified Fresh aggregate critics score on RottenTomatoes, the film’s record-setting opening weekend was followed by the No. 2 second weekend of all time, earning $111.6 million and becoming one of only four films to surpass the $100 million mark in its second weekend. The film’s phenomenal momentum also drove "Black Panther" to the highest non-holiday third weekend ever, with $66.3 million domestic. It has held the No. 1 spot at the box office for four consecutive weekends.

"Black Panther" crossed the $500 million mark internationally this weekend, bolstered by an impressive estimated $66.5 million debut in its final market, China, where it opened March 9.
