As expected, Marvel’s Black Panther has absolutely walloped the worldwide box-office over the passed few days taking in a huge $387 globally. The haul includes a whopping $192 million Stateside and a further $24.8 million in the UK where it opened slightly earlier last Tuesday.
The film has garnered good reviews across the board, the Ryan Coogler gaining a huge 97% on reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.
The film follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
