Ways Black Panther RESHAPED the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Killmonger

With the release of "Black Panther", Matt, Deppe, & Ben Casey talk about Marvel Studios' slate of 2018 releases. Of course, there are spoilers ahead, so you've been warned.

The tentpole, starring Chadwick Boseman and directed by Ryan Coogler, has blown past its original tracking.

Its earnings made the movie one of the biggest domestic opening weekends of all time.

Disney has been pulling all the stops for "Black Panther" starting with an extravagant marketing campaign that has only intensified over the past nine months, as the New York Times observed.

Wisconsin returns to action Monday with Minnesota visiting the Kohl Center, and Purdue hosts Penn State one day prior. But with three road games in the last four, there are certainly plenty of potential road blocks along the way.

See how "Black Panther" compares to some of the biggest opening weekends of all time.

Early industry estimates (via Deadline) from the film's four-day opening over the President's Day holiday weekend in the United States peg Black Panther as having raked in a whopping $US242 million ($307 million) - practically double what was expected of the movie in early tracking released just last month.

We've all tried to sneak into a movie theater, but trying to get a 2-for-1 deal by dressing up as an extra tall person isn't common. Showing venues have worked overtime to add last-minute showing schedules to take in all the crowds, with one of them, AMC Southlake 24 in Atlanta, actually managing to pull off 84 show runs on Friday, Feb. 16. Its portfolio features leading online ticketers Fandango, MovieTickets.com and Flixster; world-renown movie review site Rotten Tomatoes; and Movieclips, the #1 movie trailers and content channel on YouTube.
