Disney and Marvel‘s Black Panther already has a few records under its belt — it boasts the best first week release of any film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and its box office haul during opening weekend was one of the highest of all time. Now the film can boast of yet another incredible achievement: it’s currently the 10th highest-grossing American film of all time.
Despite having released merely 17 days ago, the film has already earned approximately $501 million USD in box office revenue. That means that Black Panther is already the second-most profitable MCU film ever, trailing The Avengers by a scant $122 million USD. Not only is the film a financial success, but Black Panther also boasts a nearly-perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes, meaning that it has received nearly universal critical praise.
Check out the current list of the top 10 highest-grossing American films of all time below, where Black Panther rubs elbows with the three most recent Star Wars films and even Avatar.
