Marvel Studios’ Black Panther fans are making it hard for studio execs not to consider getting a sequel together ASAP. After a strong President’s Day weekend turnout, the must-see movie has become the fifth largest opening in box office history.

According to reports, the flick’s ridiculous $235 million four-day run has put it in rare cinematic record books.

Overall, Black Panther generated the fifth largest opening weekend of all-time (Friday-to-Sunday) behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($248M), Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($220M), Jurassic World ($208.8M), and The Avengers ($207.4M). That is amazing company. The much anticipated PG-13 super hero film was expected to be huge, but the results actually flew higher once movie fans had the chance to start coming out. The four-day average was a gargantuan $58,458 from 4,020 locations. (Rotten Tomatoes)

The Marvel Studios release even sparked an unexpected Twitter appearance from former First Lady Michelle Obama.

This past weekend, Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan reacted to his flick’s massive box office success.

“218 [million dollars]. Woo. See what happens when we support each other? Ain’t nothing we can’t do. You show up, you show out. You see what happens? It’s crazy. It’s just the beginning though. Let the movement continue.”

Over the holiday break, R&B superstars Chris Brown and Alicia Keys heavily co-signed the hit movie.
