Kerr wanted to help students in Denver see "Black Panther" and started looking into booking a theater when he found out the Boys & Girls Club had already scheduled a screening. On Monday, a Marvel fan at the airport updated a sign at one of the gates to show that flight ATL1234 to Wakanda would be leaving at 7:30 p.m., then shared a photo of the sign on the airport's official Twitter account, writing, "The bags are packed #WakandaForever".

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). Featuring a primarily all-black cast, this superhero movie was faced with high expectations by crowds who saw it as the first film of its kind. It out paced other huge hits like "Avengers: Age of Ultron", "Captain America: Civil War" and "Iron Man 3". Still, the top earners for the weekday prove that Disney is still the top dog at the box office.

It's a very positive thing that the new series will be good for readers both old and new, as the success of the Black Panther film will doubtlessly have many fans running to grab new comics, whether they are avid readers or not.

Early film critics have called the film "unapologetically black" and that is exactly what it is. They include the formidable Danai Gurira (best known as Michonne in The Walking Dead), his ex-girlfriend and super spy Nakia (played by Oscar victor Lupita N'yongo), and his scene-stealing tech genius, Q to his Bond, little sister Princess Shuri (played by newcomer Letitia Wright). T'Challa must rally forces and gather allies to fight against his enemies and release the full power of the Black Panther.

No movie is flawless, and there is definitely one aspect of "Black Panther" that lacks a sense of resolve.

"Deep down we all hoped that people would come to see a film about a fictional country on the continent of Africa, made up of a cast of people of African descent", Coogler wrote. So when they learn arms dealer Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis) is in South Korea, intending to sell a small piece of stolen Vibranium, T'Challa, Okoye and Nakia try to capture him. And it was all founded in T'Challa's name even though he never knew about it until now.
