The Ryan Coogler-directed tentpole is the first superhero pic and the biggest box-office earner to ever win the guild's top prize.

via .hollywoodreporter:

Ryan Coogler’s groundbreaking Hollywood superhero film Black Panther made history Sunday night by winning the Screen Actors Guild Award for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture.

Not only is the Disney and Marvel Studios tentpole the first superhero pic ever to be awarded best ensemble, it’s the biggest-grossing film to walk away with the guild’s top honor.

Black Panther is likewise the first superhero title to secure a nomination for the Oscar for best picture.

The movie amassed $1.35 billion in global ticket sales following its release in theaters in February 2018. That eclipses the $1.12 billion earned by The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, which won the SAG Award for best ensemble in 2004, not adjusted for inflation.
