Black Panther was released in American movie theaters five weeks ago and then hit international movie theaters shortly after. Since its release, the film has continuously been breaking records. It seem like there's a new one being broken every few days! Black Panther has made over $1 million in a matter of weeks, it's the highest-rated Marvel movie of all time, it's the first movie since Avatar to spend five weeks at the No. 1, it's the highest-grossing movie released on a three-day weekend, it's the highest-grossing movie with a February release and SO much more. Now, this new Twitter record is another one of the monumental milestones for the project and fans are so proud.
"Along with earning the distinctions of being the biggest launch of a single superhero of all time and the biggest opening weekend for a film that is not a sequel, the comic-book bombshell can add yet another feather to its cap: having inspired more than 35 million tweets, Black Panther is the most tweeted-about movie of all time," Forbes reports.
"Twitter reports that the Ryan Coogler-directed superhero story has surpassed Avengers: Infinity War and Star Wars: The Last Jedi and is the top-tweeted movie of 2018."
Before Black Panther even premiered, it was already a trending topic on social media, especially on Black Twitter, who made this most tweeted-about achievement happen. With hashtags like #WhatBlackPantherMeansToMe, #BlackPantherSoLit, #WakandaCameToSlay, #WakandaForever and more; Black Panther conversations have been spreading across Twitter faster than Erik Killmonger's temper rose.
Congratulations to the cast of Black Panther on their history-making movie... and it's not even close to being done with the milestones yet!
