  • 'Black Panther' RULES At The Box Office At $387M Worldwide

Even before the movie came out on February 16, the solo movie featuring T'challa (Chadwick Boseman) was a favorite among critics and audiences, judging from early reviews.

Saw Black Panther over the weekend and can't stop thinking about it?

With a massive $40.2 million in ticket sales Monday, "Black Panther" has notched the biggest Monday ever at the box office and pushed its four-day total to $242 million.

Black Panther isn't just a wild success for superhero films, but a resounding refutation of the long-held Hollywood myths that either black audiences weren't worth being specifically catered to at the box office, or that films with predominantly black casts/leads can not sell movies.

Justice League disappointed throughout its run in theatres in 2017, only bringing in $228 million for what was being billed as DC's answer to The Avengers.

The higher Monday figure gives "Black Panther" the second biggest four-day weekend, behind only the $288.1 million of "The Force Awakens". And don't think that meant just throwing on a Black Panther T-shirt. Perhaps team-up extravaganzas aren't all they are cracked up to be.

"Black Panther" is about the mythical and highly advanced African nation of Wakanda, where T'Challa, played by Chadwick Boseman, inherits the throne but is challenged by a Wakandan exile named Killmonger, played by Michael B. Jordan.
