Ryan Coogler expresses gratitude for 'Black Panther' success

"Black Panther" is the latest addition to Marvel's cinematic universe and stars Chadwick Boseman as T'challa. She suggested that the film particularly instills a sense of pride to the black people who have only taken on minor roles in superhero films. Whether you're a hardcore MCU fanboy, a die-hard fan of the character in comics, an admirer of one of the dozen or so wonderful performers featured in this incredible cast, or just someone who wants to relish in the chance to finally see an African American superhero headline his own film on a scale such as this, you should get everything you're looking for and more in Black Panther.

But seeing as how, like, every screening of the film was sold out for four days straight, you're probably wondering when you'll be able to enjoy Black Panther in the comfort of your own home.

"Black Panther" tells the story of T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman), the new king of Wakanda, a fictional country, hidden in east Africa, with advanced technology beyond anything imaginable. The Afrocentric movie touches on ideas of colonialism and the reverberations of slavery.

"Black Panther's" four-day domestic gross is the second-highest of all time at $242.2 million - just a sliver above "The Last Jedi's" $241.6 million.

Two of the many famous faces that congratulated the Black Panther cast was former First Lady Michelle Obama. That's ahead of "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen", which made $200 million during it's Wednesday to Sunday debut, the Numbers said. "But also, a big part of it too says very clearly that inclusion and representation matter. Not only because it's the right thing to do, but it makes for better, richer storytelling". According to comScore, 37 percent of ticket buyers were African American.

The director has written a message thanking fans, many who have dressed up and even hired out cinemas to watch the superhero film.

At the worldwide box-office Black Panther has earned $426.8 million.

"The film represents taking a movie and turning it into an event, and tha"'s what Marvel, Imax and Ryan Coogler have accomplished with these results in our network", Imax Chief Executive Greg Foster said. This action-packed film had its audience at the edge of their seats and swimming in emotions at nearly every turn. Pictures and videos of people supporting the movie continue to go viral as we embark the film's premiere weekend. "People had to be there".
