A still from Black Panther Image: Facebook
Make way for our king, T’Challa! Black Panther is still going strong and we love every bit of it. The extravagance we have witnessed on screen is mind-blowing. Any news about the film sends us into a happy zone and RN, we are rejoicing the film’s box-office feat.
Black Panther crossed a box-office milestone so big that the world can’t keep calm. It grossed over $1billion (Rs 6500 crore approx) worldwide and has added another feather in its hat. And, it did that in just 26 days, Wohooo! Glory to the Bast!
Black Panther has garnered over $521 million in the US. It’s the ninth-highest release of all time. If it manages to collect over $40 million this weekend, it would become the No. 2 superhero release of all time over The Dark Knight’s $535 million. Hear that?

The superhero film challenges the Hollywood myth that movies with predominantly black casts “don’t travel.”#BlackPanther #WakandaForever #BlackTwitter pic.twitter.com/wf4NLhf5XX

And, the women were OH MY GAWD so good.
I think it’s important to point out that #BlackPanther has more women in the main cast with active speaking roles than any other Marvel movie in history.— 🥀 (@MJFinesseLover) March 10, 2018
Congratulations are in order.
1 Billion Dollars in 26 days. Congratulations to Ryan Coogler, @michaelb4jordan and the whole Black Panther team!— Cheo Hodari Coker (@cheo_coker) March 10, 2018
That opinion, though. Nice.

-Pay your bills
-Guarantee a sale of your next project
What #BlackPanther reaching $1 billion DOES do:
-Inspire interest in black/African projects
-Lay bare the lie about profitability

The Ryan Coogler directorial venture, with predominantly black people like Chadwick Boseman, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira and Michael B Jordan running the show, is going down in history. And we are only too glad.
