$700 MILLION (1) Black Panther $600 million (3) Ininty War and Avengers $500 million (3) see above $400 million (6) Civil War and Age of Ultron
That's it out of 20 movies.
Now, we all know that 1997 dollars is not the same as 2018 but that does not just pertain to BP.
In box office, $100 million is still considered a milestone even though it is not as impressive admission wise.
In 2017, 139 movies released on 1000 or more screens. Only 33 made $100 mil.
that's a quarter of them, to me that is a lot
EDIT: also is this Titanic number based on initial release or the seemingly yearly re-releases added on?
Titanic made approx $600 miles in 1997 and approx $657 including re-releases.
Well, I guess 33 is a lot and the benefit is inflation. However, when you look at the next level, $200 million only 13 did it last year and $300 only 8. So no matter how you slice and dice it $700 million for a movie with a black lead super hero is impressive especially with the above mentioned stats.
