      BLOCKBUSTER ‘Black Panther’

      The fifth highest opening weekend gross of all time.

      By Ray Cunneff

      February 18, 2018

      I posted this two weeks ago and it was largely ignored, 60 points and gone. I said this was the ideal way to celebrate Black History Month and no one cared.

      But now...


      “Black Panther” has grossed an estimated $192 million at movie box offices, including Thursday night early showings, surpassing the opening weekend numbers of all other Marvel films except for the first “Avengers.” The figure also gives “Black Panther” the fifth highest opening weekend gross of all time.

      The film’s total take over the President’s Day weekend is expected to be around $218 million, eclipsing the films $200 million budget.”

      As 3-day weekend totals go for Marvel films, “The Avengers” made $207.44 million in 2012, “Avengers: Age of Ultron” followed that with $191.27 million in 2015, and “Captain America: Civil War” grossed $179.14 million in 2016.

      “Black Panther” is a big-budget superhero film helmed by an African American director ― Ryan Coogler, who also co-wrote the script. It also features a nearly all black cast, including Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, Angela Bassett, Daniel Kaluuya and Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, aka Black Panther.

      Historically, this isn’t something we’re used to seeing out of Hollywood. But you can’t argue with these numbers. Or the glowing reviews from critics.

          ‘Black Panther’ Reviews Roar With

          100 Percent Rotten Tomatoes Score

          Celebrate Black History Month with "Black Panther".



          "Black Panther" is the latest release from Marvel Studios, an action movie based in the fictional African nation of Wakanda and focuses on a young king, T'Challa, who must overcome dangerous circumstances to protect his kingdom and his people. T'Challa must use his supreme powers as Black Panther to take on his enemies that are vying to overthrow him.

          The movie features a star-studded virtually all black cast and was directed by a black director, Ryan Coogler. Being that it is now Black History Month, the timing for this couldn't be any better!

          "Black Panther" is shaping up to be a HUGE hit this year not only because it's an exciting movie but also because it's an amazing display of diversity on the big screen. When you see the film in theaters, you're voting with your dollars and sending a clear message to studios and the media: audiences want more films that feature actors and directors of color.

          If the Rotten Tomatoes score for “Black Panther” stays at 100, it’ll be the first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (and DC universe) to garner a perfect rating. As The Hollywood Reporter noted, both “Wonder Woman” and “Captain America: Civil War” had 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes in early reviews, but ended up at 92 percent and 91 percent, respectively.”
