The Marvel blockbuster broke yet another record on Saturday, surpassing James Cameron's 1997 epic film "Titanic" as the third highest grossing film of all time in the USA box office.

Ryan Coogler's Black Panther is still making history almost two months after it first opened in theaters.

Making over $1 billion globally, Black Panther is now the 10th highest-grossing movie of all time worldwide and fourth overall within the USA, surpassing the likes of Marvel's The Avengers and Jurassic World.

Last meeting: The Cavaliers won 132-129 on March 21. "They're not letting their natural basketball instincts take over". DeMar DeRozan led Toronto with 19 points, Jonas Valanciunas had 17 and Serge Ibaka 16 for the Raptors .

The film earned $659.3 million as of Friday, coming in just shy of Titanic's $659.5 million, which it easily surpassed the following day. And who knows if anything will overtake the top spot which belongs to "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", which grossed $936 million in 2015. Adjusted for inflation, Titanic's $1.2 billion domestic total is the fifth highest in history; Black Panther is No. 34.

It's another box office milestone for Black Panther.

The movie took only 26 days for it to crack $1 billion at the global box office.

James Cameron's award-winning depiction of "Titanic" enjoyed a 12-year reign as the highest-grossing film of all time until "Avatar" beat it out in 2009.

So while Disney investors and Bob Eiger are usually the only ones cheering on movie's box office performances, at least this time around fans of comic book movies can point to some social progress as the numbers climb.

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