None of the major nominees remain in the box office top 10, though some continue to bring in receipts.

Black Panther also owns the third-best third weekend ever at the domestic box office, behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avatar.

Talking about Black Panther's box office collections, the film has garnered a worldwide gross of $897.7 million in less than three weeks of its release.

Two R-rated action pics opened opposite Black Panther in North America: Red Sparrow, a spy thriller starring Lawrence, and Willis' Death Wish remake.

Disney has already generated over $4 billion from the last three Star Wars films and "Black Panther" is sure to be on its way to hit that billion dollar mark, so is Disney's contribution really all that special?

The film has now raked in over $500m after just 17 days in theatres, making it the 10th highest-domestic-grossing movie in history. After Beauty and the Beast, Black Panther will have to beat fellow Disney film Rogue One ($532.1 million) and Warner Bros./DC movie The Dark Knight ($534.8 million) to continue climbing up the list. It feels as though Marvel's latest has done nothing but break box office records and pass milestones since it released just a few weeks ago.

According to Deadline, Black Panther has amassed an incredible $763.3 million global haul to this point. The film now holds a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, making it the highest-rated movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "Death Wish", a remake of the 1974 revenge thriller starring Bruce Willis, opened to approximately $13 million and placed third. With this, Panther has now surpassed Finding Dory ($486.2 million) for tenth place on the all-time domestic charts. "Lady Bird" (A24) followed with $48.3 million. Of the nine movies nominated for best picture at the 90th Academy Awards, which ABC will broadcast on Sunday night, seven were released during the last four months, Hollywood's traditional awards corridor. Annihilation came in sixth with $5.7 million.

Sony's Peter Rabbit rounded out the Top 5 domestically with an estimated $10-M for a domestic box office of $84.1-M. The Post crossed $80 million domestically while Phantom Thread reached $20 million.
