‘Black Panther’ marks box-office milestone last touched by ‘Avatar’

Another weekend, another box-office milestone for “Black Panther.”

The superhero film from Walt Disney Co.’s DIS, -0.36% Marvel Studios topped the domestic box office for a fifth straight week, becoming the first movie to do so since “Avatar” in 2009. Winning the box office crown for five weeks in a row is exceedingly rare — before “Avatar,” the last movie to do so was “The Sixth Sense” in 1999.

“Black Panther” took in $27 million in weekend ticket sales, pushing its domestic gross to $605.4 million, and its international haul to about $1.2 billion. It is now the 14th-highest-grossing movie of all time, passing “Captain America: Civil War” and “Minions,” and is on pace to top “The Avengers” as Marvel’s top-grossing movie ever.
