Even if it doesn't, "Black Panther" has easily shattered the record for the biggest domestic gross on an Oscar weekend, showing once again how the 52-week release calendar is breaking conventional thought on box office performance.

Rising Hollywood star and all-round outspoken Queen, Amandla Stenberg, has made the fearless admission that she stepped away from a role in the blockbuster hit Black Panther due to her issue with colourism. Jennifer Lawrence's spy thriller Red Sparrow earned $17 million in its first three days, while the Bruce Willis vehicle Death Wish grossed $13 million. Black Panther came storming out of the gates with a whopping $242 million during the 4-day Presidents Day weekend and made its way up the charts from there.

"Black Panther" has now crossed the half-billion mark in North America, ranking in the top ten highest grossing domestic releases ever. It's only a matter of time before it beats Beauty and the Beast ($504 million), and Rogue One ($532.1 million) and The Dark Knight ($534.8 million) are clearly in its sights.

No. 7 Clemson beats No. 23 SC 5-1
He went 8-for-12 on 3-pointers after going 7-for-39 over the previous four games while nursing foot and shoulder injuries. It would certainly be unprecedented and, frankly, unlikely for Auburn's team to be collectively named Player of the Year.

On the next offensive possession, Brown connected on a 3-pointer from the corner to bring the lead to 65-57 with 6:02 remaining. The Wildcats also average 3.2 rebounds less per game than their opponents, while the Bears average 6.5 more per game.

Black Panther 2 may end up being among the six untitled Marvel films set to release in 2021 and 2022.

Both films earned a B+ CinemaScore from audiences.

Amandla, whose YouTube video 'Don't Cash Crop My Cornrows' about cultural appropriation went viral two years ago, has made the commendable move to put her ideals above her own career, as no doubt her involvement with the film would have been a great success for the young actress.

If you wondering what that means, it means that "Black Panther" is the fifth biggest opening of all time. The current worldwide tally for the film is $897.7 million. Following its premiere, reactions to the fantasy film were mixed, so it will be interesting to see how the tracking shapes up later in the week. This week, the film will become the 33rd movie of all-time to make $1 billion worldwide, with a release in China still to come next weekend. Other upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movies include Avengers: Infinity War on April 27th, Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 6th, Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019, the fourth Avengers movie on May 3, 2019, the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 5, 2019, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in 2020.
