"Black Panther" is the second highest grossing Marvel movie of all time at the domestic box office, leaving "Avengers: Age of Ultron" in its trail at $459 million and aiming to catch up with "The Avengers" ($623.4 million).

Globally, "Black Panther" has made $56.2 million this weekend for a worldwide haul of $121 million and a global running total of $897.7 million. The global total has hit $79 million with four worldwide markets still to come.

Jennifer Lawrence's Red Sparrow (a title which totally has nothing to do with Black Widow, by the way) takes second with $17 million.
