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.

It is unclear how many days he worked on the film, but his guaranteed pay cheque was at least $7,654 plus any future residuals if one goes by the 10-year-old's contract obtained by celebrity news website TMZ.

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.
