As a child reading comic books I’m familiar with the Marvel Comic character called “The Black Panther” but my kids, their friends and just about every teen and young adult I know just broke the news to me the movie’s sales have surpassed many others and claimed it spot in history pushing the half a billion mark in a week.  Fandom has voted it  the best movie of all times. It’s sales topped the chart Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and the public is waiting to see if it will reach half a billion in one week. Several movies  has grossed more than a billion over the course of their run but it took years to reach this level not merely days. Below you will find a list of the 31 movies to gross the most over the years.

Total gross revenue: $2,187,500,000 (but keep in mind this is a 21 years gross. Not a few weeks, months or years gross.)

Two decades later, James Cameron’s “Titanic” is still untouchable at its number two spot for box-office records. The movie made around $1.8 billion during its initial 1997 release, and then topped $2 billion after it was re-released in 3D in honor of the 100-year anniversary of the iconic ship’s sinking.

She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
