With "Black Panther" continuing to dominate at the box office, the mythical nation of Wakanda featured throughout the film is becoming more and more popular.

The film's box office is now racing towards the stratospheric layer where the headlines will soon switch from dollars to rankings, as it locks itself into gold, silver and bronze-medal winning positions in the annals of film history.

Marvel's Black Panther is finally in theaters and if you haven't had the opportunity to check this film out yet, you absolutely should.

This marks only the fourth movie ever to score a $100 million second weekend, joining "The Avengers", "Jurassic World", and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". And our team was made up [of] unbelievable people from all over the world who believed in this story.

"I really enjoy Killmonger's character, just off the simple fact that he was a villain but he came with some real [talk]", he explained.

It is also the second fastest film in history to clock US$400 million at the U.S. box office, again behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Despite being inundated with phone calls about "Black Panther", it seems that Alise Homola hasn't bothered to try and see the movie.

It turns out Stan Lee isn't the only one who wants to congratulate Black Panther on its record-breaking first week.

Critic David Edelstein says the new movie, featuring a black superhero and "crazy-tough women", is a nice departure from the Marvel blueprint. This eclipses the previous second weekend record from The Avengers movie which took in $103 million back in 2012.

After its first 96 hours, Black Panther turned into one of the biggest movie openings - ever.

Black Panther, directed by Ryan Coogler, is set two years after the assassination of T'Chaka, the ruler of Wakanda, in the events of Captain America: Civil War.

Hollywood's Danai Gurira has charmed filmgoers across the globe in the manner in which she executed her role in film "Black Panther" during the world premiere last week. Even some Black businesses and communities in this country, including myself, are forced to hide essential resources and/or successes, just so someone won't steal them.
