"Black Panther" star Chadwick Boseman discusses the importance of Black History Month

The first solo film starring the titular African superhero seemed destined for a big opening weekend for months, driven by incredible advance ticket sales, social media buzz, and glowing reviews.

Not only was "Black Panther" a smash at the domestic box office, it cleaned up internationally as well, with a haul of $184.6 million through Monday. "You brought the wealth of all your knowledge, wisdom and physicality to T'Challa".

She not only shared the photo, but went on to gush about the movie and its cast, thanking Boseman for his "quiet, confident, and regal nature".

She continued, "We reap the benefits now squarely because of your courage, your fierce dedication, your intense passion, and your grueling workout regimen". Enkosi Kumkani! And congratulations on your @rollingstonecover.

The answer, which now seems obvious, is the little kid, and indeed Coogler wanted to zero in on that experience of looking up to someone as a hero, someone who looks like an adult version of you. It ended up grossing $201 million (Rs 1300 crore) in its opening weekend in the United States ($235 million in the extended four day weekend), surpassing even the most bullish of predictions, and enough to place it as the fifth largest opening weekend in history.

Tottenham boss Pochettino: Rochdale deserved Wembley replay
Ladbrokes' Alex Apati said: "Man United's victory was to be expected, but Rochdale's comeback made for a real coupon-buster". Spurs remained jittery and Rochdale produced a attractive passage of play to move ahead on the brink of half-time.

"Black Panther" now also holds the record for the biggest three-day opening for February and for an African-American director, a title previously held by F. Gary Gray, who directed "The Fate of the Furious", which opened to $98 million last April. "[She] really pays attention to detail, loves the smaller things of life, not just on screen", he added.

The trailblazing superhero movie from Walt Disney's Marvel Studios easily topped Hollywood's box office with one of the biggest theatrical debuts ever, grossing more than $426 million worldwide over the President's Day holiday weekend.

It features Lupita Nyong'o, Michael B. Jordan, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serki.

Since the release of the film, renewed calls from attorneys, families and civil rights leaders have demanded for the release of more than a dozen incarcerated members of the Black Panther Party, The Guardian reported.
