Wakanda forever! Marvel Studios has been no stranger to huge blockbuster success stories since the company's inception a decade ago, but their most recent cinematic effort, Black Panther, is kicking things to a whole new level.

Black Panther has been huge among fans and at the box office as it now has a whopping worldwide gross of over $909 million.

And while it only comes out next week in China, "Black Panther" has already brought in almost $900 million worldwide, the site added.

Marvel's Black Panther is filled with unforgettable moments, but perhaps none more so than the introduction of Winston Duke as M'Baku.

Black Panther is now the ninth highest grossing movie ever at the United States box office.

Fox's "Red Sparrow", featuring Jennifer Lawrence as a Russian ballerina-turned-super-spy, earned $17 million in its first weekend. It's the third fastest film to reach the $500 million plateau. Surprisingly, Death Wish also received a higher CinemaScore than Red Sparrow with a "B+" even though reviews were considerably worse. Till now, the film has collected $501.80 million in North America and $398.30 million in the other circuits. This makes it's the fifth highest grossing MCU movie ever across all markets. She added that she believes the cast will be nominated for an upcoming Oscar.

The top 10 was filled out by Universal's Fifty Shades Freed with $95.9 million grossed domestically so far, Fox's The Greatest Showman ending its 11-week run with $164.6 million and last week's Every Day in tenth place. It's been in theaters for just 18 days. The film now aims to hit the $1B mark by next weekend.
