The King of Wakanda reigned supreme this holiday weekend as Disney’s “Black Panther” proved to be a pop cultural phenomenon, shattering box office records with an estimated $235 million in U.S. and Canadian ticket sales for the four-day holiday weekend.

The Marvel Entertainment release, the first global superhero blockbuster with an African American director and a mostly black cast, exceeded expectations and set records for a February opening and for a Presidents Day weekend debut. The previous record holder was “Deadpool,” which made $152 million domestically over the four-day holiday in 2016.

FUN FACT: Did you know  some of Marvel’s  Black Panther was filmed at Tyler Perry Studios? Well Perry didn’t hesitate to let us know! Perry took to social media showing a picture of his new studios, with a caption stating “Welcome to Wakanda! You wanna talk about black history! These are the new stages at Tyler Perry Studios. And guess what the first film to shoot on one of the stages was?! #BlackPanther!!!”
