After months of trailers, teases and premieres dripping with melanin, we have arrived! Black Panther made it’s epic debut Presidents Day weekend and it left us beaming with pride. Black Panther set a new box office record, making an estimated $192 million between Friday and Sunday (North America) and beating out Deadpool for the biggest February debut EVER.

That’s not all…..WE’RE international! In Disney’s recent press release, they estimated $362 million in ticket sales across the world. Black Panther skips right on down the line to become the fifth-largest movie opening OF.ALL.TIME. It lands just behind the other Disney franchises – The Avengers, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
