The Wakandan royal family has spent the last eight weekends rising through the ranks of box office statistics and they just surpassed another milestone.

During its debut run Titanic sailed through $600.8 million in ticket sales, adjusting to $1.2 billion with inflation making it the fifth highest grossing film of all time.

Having beaten the odds stacked against it from deep within the entertainment industry, Black Panther became a beast unto itself, claiming the spot as the top-earning Marvel film in the franchise's history, with King T'Challa's gross sitting a lofty $42 million ahead of The Avengers' $623.4 million (and counting).
