Listen Linda, Leroy and Levy! Black Panther is outchea serving up black excellence and shattering records that is going to leave the Hollywood in shambles and change the movie industry forever!
The film has already become the highest-grossing title in history at 33 AMC Theaters across the country.
Atlanta’s AMC Southlake 24 showed out with a record 83 showings of the film.
Black Panther is shattering records in its box-office debut. On Friday, it took in $75.8 million for a projected domestic debut of $205-$210 million over the four-day President’s Day weekend. Friday’s haul included more than $25 million in Thursday night previews.
The film will easily nab the top February opening of all time and could score the biggest debut ever for a superhero pic if it passes up fellow Marvel title The Avengers ($207.4 million), not accounting for inflation.
Directed by Ryan Coogler, the $200 million movie stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther alongside Lupita Nyong’o, Michael B. Jordan, Daniel Kaluuya, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis.
