Black Panther Cast Attends European Premiere

Marvel Studios superhero movie 'Black Panther' broke records over the 3-day weekend delivering the fifth largest domestic opening weekend of all time. According to Box Office Mojo, Black Panther broke the record for the largest President's Day opening weekend of all time.

Black Panther dominated the three-day weekend with an estimated $192 million and is currently expected to finish around $218 million for the domestic (U.S.) four-day holiday weekend.

The film broke records for the largest February opening of all-time, the largest President's Day weekend opening of all-time and is the eighteenth release in the franchise and the ninth to open with over $100 million.

Black Panther is also the second largest opening in the MCU, behind only The Avengers ($207.4M) and topping the $191 million debut for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

via Box Office Mojo -- Internationally, Black Panther brought in an estimated $169 million from 48 markets for a global, three-day debut of $361 million, the fifteenth largest global opening weekend of all-time. The film managed this feat despite not debuting in China (March 9), Japan (March 1) or Russia, where the film will open next weekend along with Vietnam, Trinidad, Peru and Venezuela. Overall, South Korea leads all markets where the film brought in an estimated $25.3 million followed by the UK ($24.8m), Mexico ($9.6m), Brazil ($9.4m) and Australia ($9.2m).

    now as usual the white supremacists will take those profits to make dozens more coon slave movies

  • davine puddin

    If i worked on that film i would have asked for back end instead of upfront salary..shoot those percentages..

  • ?Royalty?

    Aren't you on a coon slave smart device right now? Cause last I checked, black people didn't create computers or smart phones......?
    I wonder where all the profits from your coon slave smart phone and the coon slave wireless internet plan is going. ?

  • ?Royalty?

    I went to 10am show on Saturday.

    Sidenote: Michael Jordan ??

  • Rere

    Black Panther!!! Yes!! I took my son's Friday, their dad took them today ????.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Michael B Jordon ????

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Don’t waste ya time, enjoy this moment!!! Black excellent!!!

  • JRock

    Hopefully the actors got more than lunch and gas money for their parts.

  • MsPam

    So do y’all feel any blacker?! I was reading about the costume designer Ruth E.Carter, where she said that there was no weaves allowed on the set, are some of y’all going to follow?! Or we’re only awoke for 2 1/2 hours! Power to the people as the original Black Panther would say!?? R.I.P Huey!

  • imright

    EXCELLENT MOVIE ?????? I ENJOYED IT ???

  • Ryan

    Just a general comment - there's a lot of irony with certain people typing that this movie isn't for black folks, from their phones that were bought from and serviced by white-owned corporations, lol. Anyway if you want to see the movie go see it, if not, you don't have to. And if the sight of people talking positively about it makes you angry you should probably move on. Personally we really enjoyed the movie and aren't big into comics, so if that's holding you back don't worry about it cause they lay out the back story in the beginning.

  • shun king

    you should have worded it white supremacist phone and white supremacist internet

  • Queen B

    Exactly!!

  • Queen B

    Cant wait to see this movie!!

  • Kim’s Original Face

    #wakandaforever ?????

  • 2telldatruth

    Right....we have watched movies our entire lives that weren't for black folks.

  • hottlanta

    I heard that while running today and had to do a victory lap. BRAVO!!!!!!!!!

  • hottlanta

    I feel blacker every time a see the red/yellow/green traffic signals used all over the world invented by a black man and has generational wealth for his family. I truly feel blacker especially in the summertime when people go to the pools/beaches and take their super soaker guns invented by a black man. I feel real black when a number/name comes up on my called ID it was invented by a black woman. I feel real black when the first responders wear gas masks and they were invented by a black man. So a lot of us don't need a 2 hour movie for a temporary moment of blackness we feel proud 365. If you wanna know about the REAL Black Panther who started school lunches everyone copied, did you ask the FBI why did they kill Fred Hampton and allowed Cruz to live. Where is the national outrage on that. We all know that a poor white man ho couldn't afford a bus ticket didn't have the money/time or means to kill Dr. King and ain't nobody mad at the FBI.

  • hottlanta

    I need you to be more specific. Arms/legs/butt/thighs/front/back. I need details so I would know what to look for when I see him.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    We know you’re a white troll

  • Rayne

    That money is still rolling in for this film! Great job!

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Can’t wait to see this movie

  • hottlanta

    Black Twitter was lit. Someone said white folks dress up for Star Wars and Rocky Horror Picture Show every year and no one says anything. Black folks dress up for Black Panther and now it is a problem. I said yep.

  • Indies beauty

    My little 30 bucks is definitely included in that.... I seen it once with friends and once with family. It's a great movie and I'm not really fond of action movies.

  • Ebony Starr

    I saw it yesterday and I am going again Saturday with a friend.

  • MsPam

    Your so wrong I’m black,beautiful and smart! ???????

  • MsPam

    Preach! I totally agree! ??

  • ?Royalty?

    No waste of time at all. I got to giggle at his expense, which was all I wanted. ??

  • mona q

    ALL OF IT. He looks like a beautiful King in this movie...and he was already fine.

  • mona q

    I've seen it 3 times and thinking about 4. First time just me and my husband. Second time we took our 17 year old. The third time we took our 17 year old and our 23 year old! Now the two of us want to go see it again.

  • Phyllis

    I’m excited about this film , and can’t wait until me and my family watch it in our Afrikan Wear??

  • mona q

    What is awesome is that Ryan Coogler had a 200 million budget for the movie which is the most ever given to a black director. he did a great job. I enjoyed Fruitvale Station and I enjoyed Creed. This dude is clearly a talented director. We need more of them to be put in the forefront!

  • hottlanta

    That is why I can't get my ticket you got all of them. Lil Hots took my grandson and she said he came out singing and dancing and said he loved it. For a 5 year old to say something like that, that is huge. She had me rolling when she said no babies crying or nothing. I guess they got the Twitter memo when they said yall had a whole year to get a babysitting to keep the kids, don't bring no screaming babies to the movies and spoil it for everyone.

  • You Could Never

    And self confident obviously

  • You Could Never

    No weaves are allowed on a lot of black natural hair forums either that I frequent. Hair is hair. To each

  • mona q

    LOL..you know what's sad though. We live in a predominatly white area. The first two times we went to a theater and there were only a handful of black people and about 8-9 white people. The theater was empty during opening day!! Management at this theater also decided NOT to order the collector's edition Black Panther cups. The lady had the nerve to offer me a Star Wars cups (of which they had thousands of)...SMDH..I ended up complaining about them not even ordering a few of the cups for the people who might want one and just got an email from corporate telling me they were sending me one for every family member! We went to a different place this last time and it was mostly filled with black people. Wherever they've been, I don't know because I've never seen that many black people where I live. It was nice! I could tell that management was on pins and needles expecting people to be on their worst behavior but everyone was polite and acting like they have home training!

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Good

  • hottlanta

    Good for you. Glad you sent that email. It is about the disrespect and principal. Star Wars is all over the place even on Kleenex tissues and they gonna make sure the family get that generational wealth and we want the same thing for Black Panther. My grandson has the figurine and I am looking for the other one's so I can collect them. The reason why you haven't seen that many black folks it is because we be werking chile. They be watch us while white folks be stealing and cutting the fool right under their noses.

  • hottlanta

    Don't forget tomorrow is a holiday so more folks will see it tomorrow.

  • hottlanta

    My black life mattered before Black Panther and will matter after Black Panther. I knew black excellence before this movie and I know it will expand after this movie.

  • zero options

    I can't wait to see this, I always wait for the crowds to thin out before going to a blockbuster movie.

  • MsMeWhenImGone

    The only reason it didn't break the record is because it wasn't playing in as many theatres. However attendance was 100% https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/60b23dc2ca87a7bdbfbe147c7c1998436a986ea3859a81211de07fb7f95987ed.jpg

    This was s great movie, lived up to the hype...

  • Kemi

    Saw it last night... it was breathtaking. Had tears in my eyes during some scenes! It’s a must see

  • V Dubb

    That!!!!!!

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    We went to see it this morning. The 10 am show. I loved seeing so many beautiful Black men and women on the screen.It was a great cast ,great movie. Ive been in love with Chadwick Boseman for a long time he is very sexxxy to me.

  • CrunchyBlack1

    how is it calculated already when today isn't even over? no matter tho, so long as it crosses the 1.7 billion mark im cool! That'll make it the highest grossing marvel movie every!!!!

  • Phillybruh

    Kids loved it and so did the partner and I.

  • V Dubb

    I actually bought my ticket weeks before and went by myself. Dressed modestly and didn't even want to eat anything in fear of having to move. I enjoyed every piece of it. Wasn't the best Marvel movie but definitely an AMAZING movie! I cried through most and the rest laugh so hard...I was too loud. It was a movie made for me. Just like Color Purple it reminded me of our journey and that so much of us and our story is missing. I stepped lighter when I walked out and felt proud af. Hours after I had an awakening of my treatment of my own people and the irritation I feel at times when we aren't acting right, and realized I have to be more patient with my people. And I will. We have to give ourselves chances others wont.

  • V Dubb

    He is fine as hell isn't he?

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    Yesss!

  • Rere

    I'm trying to go tomorrow & see in 3D

  • hottlanta

    We all love black folks in the summertime each time we turn on our air conditioning. Folks wanna not take Obamacare because of Obama name but they ain't gonna say I am not gonna turn my air conditioning because it was invented by a black. Even racists has to cool off.

  • mona q

    I may just have to go tomorrow to watch it in 3D! ??

  • V Dubb

    ??????

  • Ajavee

    Truth?

  • JRock

    Give me five on the black hand side. Great movie!

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    The 2nd week is the REAL determiner of whether this movie has legs.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    But the movie has to make DOUBLE that amount to break even when you factor in marketing.

  • hottlanta

    OMG. Jill Scott drunk in love and drunk tweeting. Her son has to speak out. Get it together Jill everything doesn't have to be twitter.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xx-FcZE7s0g

  • mona q

    Yep. They will be fine. Disney predicted a 4 day holiday weekend of $218 million in the US + Canada and globally a debut of $361 million. They will hit these numbers for sure.

  • mona q

    Exactly!

  • mona q

    This is fake news sis! That video of her son speaking was from earlier. Her getting drunk was later and I'm sure her son was already in bed and well taken care of by a nanny. From what I see of Jill online (because obviously I don't know her personally), she would not allow her son to see her drunk. Now I agree with you she didn't have to post this online. That's something the world didn't need to know!

  • mona q

    I'm also celebrating that Kendrick Lamar's Black Panther soundtrack debuted at #1 because I loved it!

  • Ryan

    I saw a nice older couple dressed up. My first thought was that theses people have lived through it and remember what life was like in before and during the Civil Rights movement, and I felt pride before even getting into the place... people who wanna try to sht on something like that have something seriously wrong with them for real.

  • hottlanta

    Thanks I am sure he saw this like everyone else. She is not making it easy for her divorce or for being a good mom to her child. Someone needs to keep her away from Twitter. Not a good look.

  • hottlanta

    Chile those well dressed folks will kick a mofo azz. Don't let the well dressed fool ya.

  • Jygalo

    Ha I’ve seen it twice once in imax and 3D. I’m a Marvel geek and this was the best.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Check your tickets they are fudging numbers in Atlanta got a ticket that said fifty shades the room said it also and it wasn't until we complained they put the right movie up

  • Ryan

    LOL, I know they would!!

  • hottlanta

    I myself have gone to an event dressed to the Gods and it is always that one person that wanna mess with you. You try to be cool to respect the place and yourself but they keep messing with you. I have been known to snatch my own wig off before the rumble and then the other person leaves put my wig back on and keep it moving.

  • KcoolMuziq

    I believe she's only acting...

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Lol!

  • A D N

    the movie has nothing to do with Black Panther movement. However, it is a movement for blacks to learn from if one can catch the subliminal messages..

  • A D N

    He did an excellent job!

  • A D N

    I'll be glad when everybody sees it so we can talk about it.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Excellence all the way around.. . Even if they try to downplay this movie it would be a fail .... Everything down to a T .. Excellence ... Acting.... Visuals ... Costumes .... Writing .. Music. . .??

    Why no openin in China?? They have black people there? Why certain countries have to wait?

  • Yoni7

    Were we supposed to feel "blacker"? It was just a movie. I stayed "awoke" for the 2 1/2 hours because I paid my money and wanted to see the movie. The "awoke" YOU'RE trying to portray had nothing to do with this marvel comic movie.
    Granted there were some things said in the movie that some of us already know (i.e. taking the riches of the land and giving to the oppressed and xyz), however, for the most part, this was not THAT type of movie. Hope YOU were entertained by the movie in its entirety.

    All you slow moving people need to go see it. It was FIRE.

    I loved everyone seen. The little sister was funny and Okoye was fierced as I dont know what.

  • the guest

    Please, what is happening with the tickets? Should we buy them online or at the theater?

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Listen..Go see this movie...this is not a "I'll wait to they release it on firestick" type movie. This movie is powerful: in it's dialogues, it's symbolism, & the messages. You don't have to be a marvel fan to enjoy or understand this movie. the writing, the characters, the directing surpasses exceptional mind blowing work. This movie is everything!

    She did NOT break character, did she? She is the same from one role/TV show/movie to the next.........and I LOVE IT! WalkingDeadmeetsBlackPanthermeetsMichone. LOL

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    I had a dialogue friday with someone in my office. This person is highly "educated"..and she asked, what is the deal with dressing up? I asked her that when "black" movies are generally about Slaves, Ex- Slaves..Pimps, Gang Life, Crackheads, ...what should we go dressed as?

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    Wakanda Forever!!

  • Banka

    Wow

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Okoye was my fav- between her and Michael B- they did that!

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    The crowds we're off the chain yesterday too. I'm glad we got there early and got good seats. So may people came later and we're turned away because the movie had already sold out by 10:15 am. The girl that sold us the tickets said that this past Saturday the show was sold out 5 hours before the movie even started.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Great Movie with a phenomenal cast. I teared up like twice during the movie and it made me feel proud for some reason. It made my cold lil heart thump...

    This movie is amazing! The visual, cast and story all beautifully done.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Yes I can't lie Michael B killed his role.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    WOW!!!!!!!!!! now i don't know about most theaters, but in the two theaters i went to one in Conyers and one in Buckhead, the crowds were predominantly black! I say that to say the black dollar and it's power was very evident this weekend. I went to dinner Sunday, after the movie. We went to Chili's. They were out of everything basic, from Ranch dressing to ribs...because the movie crowds trickled over...she said most of the restaurants in the area where running out of food, because of the crowds. Our server said on Saturday night alone, from like 8pm to close, they sold over $20K worth of food, that's not including alcohol sales.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    Thats crazy.I know exactly the area you are talking about. I used to work in Buckhead when I lived in Georgia.I live in Minnesota rightnow and there were so many white people at the theaters to see Black Panther it wasnt even funny.There are way more whites here in MInnesota than there are Black people. The theater was packed with them when we saw the movie yesterday.

  • Yardgirl

    Go see this movie in the theater!! The beautiful cinematography will be lost on a small screen!! The storyline and acting is A+++++ It is worth the price not admission.??????

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    Yes Michael's body was definitely on point. But not to cause shade. Im just not into Black men who say they arent attracted to Black women.Michael only dates white women.? I don't find him likeable.

  • RespectSelf

    I bought 6 tickets and saw it this past weekend.

    Going to see it again on Wed.

    I'm for all the hype, but I really do be pressed for Marvel movies

  • Tammie Reed

    Great movie for sure!

  • Yoni7

    So glad I didn't encounter that drama at our theater. I didn't know they STILL try to pull that type shit. I think the ONLY issue (if any) we had was they kinda left the lights dim and not all the way off. I didn't care for that. However, it didn't stop me from enjoying the movie.

  • MsPam

    Girl enjoy and she’s a great speaker!

  • SlickOne

    This movie was absolutely great! Black excellence at its finest. I cannot remember the last time i have been to the movies but this was a must. I was so proud to see us in something great like this & it not being anything negative or drug related. I was really dreading it ending. Can I just say Micheal B Jordan was soooo fine. I just melted everytime I saw him. Everyone was beautiful. Lovely film I will be going back again next weekend.

  • MsPam

    Chile I didn’t go see the movie, I’m already AWOKE!

  • MsPam

    Really?! I knew that! That’s my point why does it take a Marvel movie to learn what you already should know?!

  • Evillene

    I knew Michonne was gonna bring the heat. And she did!

  • Coffee1st

    Are you serious!?!?!!!!!
    SMH..... Let me see another movie on my ticket....????

    Thank you! I can't wait!

    This was a pretty decent movie. It surprised me.

  • Desiree Edwards

    I'm going to wait till the hype/long lines goes down to go see it....

  • Tee Bullock

    I'm not a hero movie girl, but this was really good!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Yes! The little sister was my favorite character. I was telling my oldest son that I think she's who is going to replace Iron Man. Not sure if you all remember either last year or the year before Marvel revealed Tony Stark was going to be replaced as Iron Man by a young black teenage girl who is smarter than him. The whole time I was watching Black Panther, I couldn't stop thinking she would be the one to be the new Iron Man.

  • ?Royalty?

    Yeah, I get you and to be all the way honest, I'm not really into black men period. ? Their personalities are often....... well......just like Michael's. While I don't care for his personality, I do appreciate his physique.

    Yeah this was really a good film!! So much sexiness. Felt pride and lust the entire movie lol. Broad shoulders and tight suits lol.

  • kekeb

    Yeah for sure!! Felt so much pride watching this film.

  • The Chosen One

    I pray that the magnitude of this movie will motivate our culture even more to create movies like this one. everything was positive, no obscene cursing, nudity, or stereotyping of ones cultural background.
    Chadwick Boseman and Mike B.J. were fine as granulated sugar.

  • zero options

    Ok, I really dislike crowded theaters, but I may have put up with it to see this one.
    I figured it would be empty on a monday morning...WRONG!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Excellent movie!!! Great stars, setting, costumes, effects, action and plot!!!

  • sunni_daze

    This movie was everything I saw it Saturday morning and will see it again.

  • sunni_daze

    Just do it. You won't be mad, maybe you can find a theather with the big reclining seats. It makes it less crowded.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I saw 3 times already and each time it gave me all the life I need and then some. This movie is beautiful...the cinematography, the attention to detail on the costumes/makeup, the script, the way it flowed, and the way it felt like it was apart of the MCU, but also it's separate entity. Bravo Coogler and company...Bravo.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    It's a good soundtrack.

  • Lucy

    I saw it three times too and Killmongers last brought a tear every time.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    It was so too real. I just wanted to hug him because I understood where he was coming from.

  • Ant Hill

    is that you in that pic?

    I saw it Sunday night and I plan to see it again this weekend....by myself...I took my tribe the first time....I just want to experience it all alone.....

  • Lucy
  • SlickOne

    So true.....Granulated sugar indeed?

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    It's a good risk to take...him, Michael B Jordan and Winston Duke were all the snacks and main courses in this movie.
