In addition to standing as 2018’s biggest blockbuster to date, and challenging the industry’s time-honored calculus about films featuring predominantly black casts not performing well overseas, Black Panther also surpassed Wonder Woman as the top-grossing superhero origin movie of all time. As of Friday, T’Challa and co. had pulled in $520.8 million domestically and $419.5 million in foreign ticket sales. But thanks to a $22.7 million opening day in China, where Black Panther debuted on March 9 and had enjoyed strong pre-release ticket sales, the Disney-distributed film was able to join an elite club of just 33...

They will say it is nonsense. Nigerians will be the ones that will first spoil it”.

Black Panther: Atiku Abubakar Writes On The Lessons Of The Movie For Nigeria

Former Nigerian vice-president Atiku Abubakar who saw the Black Panther movie recently with his kids has just penned an article on the lessons he learnt from watching the movie and how they can be applied in the real world.   Read Below… Over the weekend, I joined my children to watch the much talked about ‘Black Panther’. It was a good film, and I was happy they took me to see it.

That is a good thing, the kinds of things we used to do. For young people who may not rememb...

100 Days Russia: Five Things To Make Super Eagles A Black Panther Force

What has made the Black Panther a shot in the arm for most black people on earth is the freedom that the technological enclave of Wakanda provides – they were designed to be more advanced than most white nations. The Super Eagles can create ‘Wakanda’ in Russia in about 100 days’ time if they assume some five lessons ingrained in the movie. Over five appearances and 18 matches at the World Cup, the Nigeria national football team, the Super Eagles, have won just five and lost 10, scoring 20 goals in the process. Their best tournament has been the ouster by Italy in the second round at USA 94 where the Eagles led the three-time world champions until the 88th minute.
