Black Panther has eclipsed $1 billion at the box office worldwide, becoming the fifth Marvel Cinematic Universe film to reach that milestone.

The full numbers are not yet official but Disney announced today that the film, directed by Ryan Coogler and starring Chadwick Boseman, will join the billion-dollar club sometime this weekend. It’s the 16th Walt Disney Studios release to do so.

Other Marvel flicks to go over the billion-dollar mark worldwide include The Avengers (2012), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Iron Man 3 (2013) and Captain America: Civil War (2016).

Black Panther just opened in China, which should give another boost to the movie’s money haul Black Panther premiered 26 days ago. It made $201.7 million in North America on the first weekend, a record for the biggest February debut ever (dwarfing previous record holder Deadpool, which earned $132 million in its opening weekend in 2016).

According to Box Office Mojo, Black Panther’s domestic total as of yesterday is $530 million. It’s still playing in U.S. theaters, so if you haven’t seen it yet, here’s our review. Verdict: It’s good.
