Black Panther playing Jeopardy is the weirdest, funniest thing you'll see today

Black Panther playing Jeopardy is the weirdest, funniest thing you'll see today

The movie has officially surpassed Titanic as the third-highest grossing film of all time in North America as of Saturday. With a collection of $659.3 million, the superhero movie is behind "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" ($936.7 million) and "Avatar" ($760.5 million). And the Internet seems to agree.

Black Panther made the mark after bringing in a further $8.4 million this past weekend, which was good for a fourth-place finish at the domestic box office.

Black Panther - starring Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, Letitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya and Michael B. Jordan - sits just behind Star Wars: The Last Jedi on the worldwide list, which is in ninth place with $1.33 billion.

The band "Black Panther" released by Marvel studios managed to break many records, becoming one of the top grossing films of the USA.

The success of "Black Panther" is more impressive, considering it opened February 15.

Black Panther will be screen in 600-seat cinema in in Riyadh's King Abdullah Financial District.

The categories this time are Grown Ass, Awh Hell Nah, Fid'na, Girl Bye, I Ain't Got It, and (as always) White People.

Not the mention that folks are more likely to be drawn when a movie becomes a cultural phenomenon, like "Black Panther" or last year's horror sensation "It". Adjusted for inflation, Titanic's $1.2 billion domestic total is the fifth highest in history; Black Panther is No. 34.
