Marvel Studios’ Black Panther made its debut during President’s Day Weekend and has since raked in over $426 million USD. The star-studded film directed by African-American director, Ryan Coogler, starred Chadwick Boseman alongside Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira and more.
The action-packed superhero film earned more in its first four days, than any movie in history at the North American box office besides Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Boseman stars as T’Challa (Black Panther), the rightful ruler of the fictitious, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda. The storyline includes a deep dive into T’Challa’s battles on his journey as king of Wakanda while defending the nation’s powerful, impenetrable resource, vibranium.
