  • 'Black Panther' crushes box office records in opening weekend

"Black Panther" has proven its staying power after breaking records during its North American debut last weekend.

Disney projects "Black Panther" could earn $83 million to $95 million this weekend if it follows trends for comparable Marvel Studios films. Generally speaking, February is considered something of a dead zone for movies, and we've seen Marvel dump releases they don't really expect to be box office blowouts during February.

Will you return to the theater this weekend to revisit Black Panther? However, T'Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country.

It also has the best Rotten Tomatoes score (Certified Fresh at 97 percent) of any Marvel Cinematic Universe film or superhero movie in history, according to Marvel.




So in summary, Black Panther is racking in summer blockbuster box office numbers, but it's doing so during the winter, and flying in the face of conventional MCU box office wisdom.

While Black Panther does an excellent job of explaining what the virtually indestructible and rare metal is and where it came from, vibranium has already appeared in several Marvel movies, Notably Avengers: Age of Ultron, where the evil android solicited some vibranium stolen from Wakanda.which ended up becoming the body of the synthetic Avenger, the Vision.

Visually, Black Panther is a feast for the eyes. It's obvious the entire team strove to create "the most attractive sunset on earth", and they did not fall short. The Oscar-nominated costume designer crafted the jewelry, weapons and outfits for the movie for a very specific objective, as she told Entertainment Weekly, "I wanted to bring that aesthetic to their costumes so that we knew when we saw them that they are from Africa".

Above all, Black Panther is a game-changer for the standards of the superhero genre.
