Globally, Black Panther has grossed $1.29 billion, ranking as the No. 10 title of all time. And of course, it will also boost the box-office collections of Black Panther a bit more!

Almost two months after opening, the Marvel blockbuster continues to rake in revenue at the box office, and The Hollywood Reporter reports that by the end of this weekend the film's domestic gross will exceed $695 million. The Best Picture victor starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio has amassed $2.2 billion worldwide across its various theatrical runs, while Black Panther trails with an estimated $1.3 billion through Sunday. It'll also have competition from its home team as Avengers: Infinity War, the fourth massive team-up movie in Marvel's franchise, is hitting theaters in just a few short weeks at the end of this month, and, as recent teasers suggest, boasts a major battle taking place in Black Panther's kingdom of Wakanda.
