'Black Panther' Joins the Billion Dollar Club at Global Box Office

Tess Thompson

It's easily near the top of all the Marvel cinematic universe films.

Early on, there was concern that Asian markets might not embrace the film. However, the 18th film in the MCU offers something different, and Eau Claire community members are responding.

With Black Panther already pulling in over $930.7 million at the box office so far, it was a foregone conclusion that there will be a sequel for the superhero king of Wakanda sometime in Marvel's future.

I saw the new Marvel movie Black Panther last weekend, a little later than most, and it was a really fun movie theater experience.

Henson added that the president offered no legislative remedies, opening, or closing remarks, and focused mostly on listening. The video game policy veteran argued that Trump is "inciting a culture war rather than getting to the truth".

Ryan Coogler's film earned an estimated $22.7 million at the Chinese box office. "There's more meaning to get out of it than just that". And once it passes The Dark Knight, it'll be the second-biggest comic book superhero flick ever in North America behind only The Avengers ($623m in 2012). The 12-minute clip highlights viewers' thoughts on the film's all-Black cast and its role of challenging negative stereotypes about Black folks in the country and across the world. It takes good characters, and good actors and actresses to play them in a good story, and this is where Coogler hit gold. "It's a balance between leaving people wanting more and then giving them too much, but I would watch a movie about any of those characters you just named".

Over the film's opening weekend, 37 percent of the USA audience was black, according to fortune.com.

Jordan brought to life one of the most ruthless and well-contrived black villians to date. "I think there's lots of potential", he said. It is displayed as having advanced technology, modern language, fierce warriors and as one of the most developed civilizations in the world. Internationally, the film looks to be nearing the $500 million thanks to a $20 million opening day in China. Though the film was very political, it was not overbearing or uncomfortable to hear Erik's intentions because of the history of race relations embedded in American culture.

Another remarkable aspect of "Black Panther" is the girl power present in the film. During an interview at the Governors Ball Oscars after-party, Dunkirk director Christopher Nolan said that that Black Panther 2 might receive a nomination for Best Picture at 2019's Academy Awards.
