'Black Panther' Is Breaking An Insane Amount Of Box Office Records

'Black Panther' Is Breaking An Insane Amount Of Box Office Records

Black Panther is now playing.

Black Panther ends with Shuri (Letitia Wright) and T'Challa visiting the Oakland apartment where T'Chaka, their father, killed his own brother, Killmonger's father. Not surprisingly, the best 4-day opening of all time is a Star Wars vehicle, with Star Wars: The Force Awakens having generated a whopping $288 billion in ticket sales during its first four days in the theater a few years ago.

Keep checking Pursue News for the latest updates on Black Panther and others movies in the Marvel cinematic universe.

Chadwick Boseman plays T'Challa, Wakanda's king and guardian in Marvel's "Black Panther".

At first, I was anxious about the direction of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after it was acquired by Disney. Wakanda is an abundant source of vibranium, the alien metal used to make Captain America's shield and the Winter Soldier's arm, the resource sought by Avengers villain Ultron and used to help synthesize Vision into being. If you listen to reviewers, this week's Marvel film Black Panther belongs in the mold-breaking category.

Early film critics have called the film "unapologetically black" and that is exactly what it is.

Wonder Woman's smashing success proved the representation of women wasn't just a nice idea but also a smart business decision, earning more than $800 million worldwide. He showed up and talked to the audience about the impact of this film. They include the formidable Danai Gurira (best known as Michonne in The Walking Dead), his ex-girlfriend and super spy Nakia (played by Oscar victor Lupita N'yongo), and his scene-stealing tech genius, Q to his Bond, little sister Princess Shuri (played by newcomer Letitia Wright).

Remembering what came after Oakland, the mid-credits featured T'Challa alongside his friends at the U.N.as they made a decision to share Wakanda's technology with the rest of the world. You know, the ones with the black Marvel hero Blade. "Any time you have black and white folks putting on dashikis and running to a multiplex to repeatedly experience a must-see movie directed by a woke black wunderkind about a heroic African prince from a fictional country, there's no question", says Detroiter Tracey Martin, a local attorney who watched the film and agreed it reminded her of "Roots". Even then, it's unclear whether T'Challa ever fully grasps the vast degree of separation between his and Killmonger's experiences in the world.
