Fandango announced today that it sold more than 30% of the USA four-day weekend box office dollars for "Black Panther", marking one of Fandango's largest shares of opening weekend for any movie in the company's 18-year history.

Folk just can not enough of Black Panther, it seems.

"Black Panther" came out in a red carpet premiere in Hollywood on Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2018.

Monday's haul pushed "Black Panther's" four-day holiday total to a staggering $241.9 million in North America.

Black Panther is the hot movie ticket right now, and two kids took a clever step to get a peek inside the fictional land of Wakanda. That doesn't make it just the biggest box-office opening for an African-American director, or the biggest February opening in box office history, but also places it in the top five all-time opening weekends.

All across social media this weekend, we saw a ton of spectacular outfits worn at Black Panther showings across the world.

Disney has been pulling all the stops for "Black Panther" starting with an extravagant marketing campaign that has only intensified over the past nine months, as the New York Times observed.

Unfortunately for the duo, the movie theater manager didn't fall for it. Its portfolio features leading online ticketers Fandango, and Flixster; world-renown movie review site Rotten Tomatoes; and Movieclips, the #1 movie trailers and content channel on YouTube.
