Seth Carr, who played the child version of actor Michael B Jordan's character Killmonger in the movie Black Panther, got paid $1,000 a day on set.

Along with young Killmonger, Carr is known for his roles on the shows Bosch and Knight Squad. He also played young Holt on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Meanwhile, Black Panther continues to rule the international box office. Not since Avatar has a box-office hit had the kind of staying power of Black Panther. Ryan Coogler's comic-book sensation on Sunday became the first film since James Cameron's 2009 smash to top the weekend box office five straight weekends.

The Disney release grossed $27 million in ticket sales over the weekend, according to studio estimates, pushing its domestic haul to $605.4 million. Worldwide, Black Panther has grossed more than $1.1 billion.

Though Black Panther has had little competition to contend with throughout February and March, such consistency is especially rare in today's movie-going world. Before Avatar, the last film to do it was 1999's The Sixth Sense.
