"Black Panther" follows T'Challa who, after the events of "Captain America: Civil War", returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King.

The stand out moments come at the close of the segment, first with the woman who knows exactly why Trump would be verbally sparring with the King of Wakanda.

This marks only the fourth movie ever to score a $100 million second weekend, joining "The Avengers", "Jurassic World", and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

In January, Christian Noble made a decision to take part in the #BlackPantherChallenge, a call on social media to invite people to take kids to see the movie who normally might not be able to afford a movie ticket. "I just had to", she explained.

After posting monstrous totals at the box office each of the last seven days, Black Panther has set the new standard for the Marvel Cinematic Universe when it comes to opening weeks.

However, the Winter Soldier could not be included in the "Black Panther" storyline because it might not make sense. The cast's performance is Black Lives Matter, Black Girl Magic, and Black Boy Joy wrapped up in one enormous present. 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.

"Black Panther" is debuting in the key Russian market this weekend and will premiere next week in Japan, another critical location.

Marvel's Black Panther is continuing its incredible run at the box office.

Ryan Coogler's film, which cost about $200 million to make, is the most big-budget, largely black ensemble film in years and among the few to be centered on a black superhero.

Already making Marvel history, "Black Panther" is everything I could have asked for this Black History Month and more.

Another strength of "Black Panther" is its ability to take down gender norms within the genre.
