Black Panther picks up the story of T'Challa, who returns to his homeland Wakanda after the events of Captain America: Civil War. Representation in pop culture matters, and the women of Black Panther are celebrated and validated throughout the film in powerful ways.

As for the movie, it not only features a black main actor, but is set in Africa with a largely black cast.

"Black Panther" also shattered the record for an opening in February, which belonged to "Deadpool", the R-rated superhero film from 20th Century Fox that brought in $132 million when it opened in 2016.

Back in 2017, I wrote about Netflix's decision to make 13th, Ava DuVernay's award-winning documentary on the criminal justice system, available for free to educators.

Jennifer Lawrence: Amy Schumer's wedding was 'very sudden'
Schumer spent time vacationing on the Vineyard last summer while she was in Boston filming the upcoming movie " I Feel Pretty ". Amy confirmed her wedding in a sweet Instagram post of pictures of the big day, captioning them with the word " yup ".

Despite the high praise, there are some people like Agozino who believe that there were some missed opportunities in the film.

Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade and his wife, actress Gabrielle Union, partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs in various cities to see the movie.

Just like everyone, the Black Panther trailer got me excited and since then, I have been anxiously waiting for the Black Panther release date. In my opinion, casting was done very well and the costume manager also did a pleasant job since all the Black Panther cast fit in well in their various roles. And this doesn't even count the number of small acts of cinematic philanthropy taking place in communities around the country.

The film garnered an "A+" CinemaScore from audiences and a near flawless 97% score on review site Rotten Tomatoes, which makes it one of the best-reviewed superhero movies of all time. This is easily one of the best Marvel films I've ever seen. Much like any other superhero movie, we know to expect extravagant fight scenes, special effects, killer costumes and whole invented worlds-which, in financial terms, usually equates to rather large budgets. That's when you get to these much bigger than expected debuts.

China wants 'severe punishment' for American charged with stealing statue's thumb
The 24-year-old allegedly touched the left hand of the statue and is said to have broken off a piece, pocketed it and left. Rohana, who was released on bail, is also charged with transporting stolen property through state lines.

That's the question and challenge for us that only time will answer.

Hollis pointed to the many factors that made "Black Panther" a hit: Coogler's direction, the stewardship of Kevin Feige's Marvel, the reliability of the brand.

The film has racked up over $201 million since Friday and is projected to be the fifth-biggest opening weekend box office of all time. The "Thor" movies kept pushing Asgard as a sort of utopia, but I never saw the general population as more than servants and soldiers who didn't seem particularly happy with their lot in life.

In 2015, IndieWire even put together a guide for filmmakers on how to build educational and non-theatrical screenings into their release windows.
