"Black Panther" made a "Titanic"-sized gain at the box office this weekend, passing James Cameron's 1997 blockbuster to become the No. 3 highest-grossing movie ever in the United States.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Ryan Coogler's superhero film topped "Titanic," which grossed $659.5 million domestically, on Saturday.
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens," with $936.7 million, and "Avatar," with $760.5 million, hold the top two spots.
