"Black Panther" Breaks Records at the Box Office

Captain America vs The Winter Soldier

You said weapons would form but let them not prosper in this land. It was something for her to turn to, something that made her feel less alone, even if it was "made up".

I'll bet anything that much of the Thought Police is coming from people who knew nothing about the 52-year-old comic book character before he made an appearance in 2016's Captain America: Civil War. There is a frankly freakish exposition dump explaining the origins of Wakanda that opens the film, and its inclusion feels unnecessary even after two viewings. Worst case scenario, you end up finding the nerds behind the prank and get to geek out about Black Panther while sitting in a Brookstone massage chair eating Panda Express.

If you were one of the tens of thousands of people that helped Disney-Marvel's "Black Panther" smash opening weekend box office numbers, then you've probably found yourself wishing you could move to Wakanda, or Zamunda if you're OK with a little unpredictability.

Though Marvel Studios, after 17 films and a decade in the business understand what makes a superhero film work, the response to Black Panther is stronger than the studio anticipated. As a result, the movie keeps hitting new milestones, like yesterday's record-breaking Tuesday for Black Panther which saw it surpass the rest of the MCU for the day.

Will Smith says he was nearly brought to tears watching the film and we can relate.

Since mid-January, Ashley's GoFundMe has surpassed its original goal of $5,000 more than twice over.

Black Panther is now playing in theaters! As part of the campaign, any money that remains will be donated to public schools throughout the country.

The movie manages to seamlessly bring together ideas of isolationism, immigration, systemic racial tensions and weave them into the basic hero's journey structure; creating a film that carries all these sophisticated messages while being an overall great superhero action movie. "Right before we started the shoot, and they had some cool insight". Spider-Man: Homecoming is the highest-grossing "inaugural" film for a Marvel character at $880.1 worldwide, but Black Panther is already at $500 million and it hasn't even opened in Japan or China yet. "Just like how people do for Star Wars or Harry Potter". If the lack of queer representation in Black Panther were a real issue, rest assured it would've been addressed by the very people allegedly excluded, Black LGBT persons-and not through surrogates who are the descendants of colonizers who have never been known for their repping of Team Black.
