Black Panther set for record February opening after pulling in $25.2-million Thursday night
By Ryan Faughnder

“Black Panther,” the latest superhero blockbuster from Marvel Studios, grossed a massive $25.2 million in ticket sales from preview shows Thursday in the U.S. and Canada to set a February record, according to studio estimates.

The Thursday night result for “Black Panther” nearly doubled the previous February box office preview record holder, 20th Century Fox’s “Deadpool,” which opened with $12.7 million on its first night in 2016. It’s also the second-highest box office haul ever for a Marvel film opening, coming in just behind 2015’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” ($27.6 million).

Carl the Animator: “I’m a millennial, so sue me!”

Ted the Animator: “That’s, like, a solid inch of vinyl. Wouldn’t be very practical at all.”

Carl the Animator: “…wait, so that’s the thing you take issue with?”

Carl the Animator: “Not Shaggy doing this?

Ted the Animator: “Nuh-uh. Audiophile accuracy overshadows Shaggy stances.”
