Threatening Women Didn’t Stop The Black Panther Audience

Variety reports:

“Disney-Marvel’s “Black Panther” is re-writing the record books, topping “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” for the second-highest four-day domestic opening of all time, with $242 million at 4,020 North American locations.”

“The superhero pic set a record for top Monday domestic gross ever, with $40.2 million, edging the previous high set by “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” at $40.1 million. The Monday total came in $7 million above the studio’s projections and lifted the four-day haul to $242 million.”

“Black Panther” has grossed the second-highest four-day total of all time, behind only “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” at $288.1 million and $400,000 ahead of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

“It has the highest three-day debut ever for a February film and the fifth-biggest of all time behind only “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” at $248 million, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” at $220 million, “Jurassic World” at $208.8 million, and “The Avengers” at $207.4 million.”

FOX News remarks:

“Ryan Coogler’s film is the first big-budget tentpole release featuring a nearly all-black cast. The movie’s three-day gross of $201.8 ranks fifth highest all time, not accounting for inflation.”

But more important than box office, as of this writing, the audience score for Black Panther at Rotten Tomatoes stands at 77%.  That’s significantly higher than the audience score for The Last Jedi, which currently sits at a dismal 48%.  Indeed, the majority of comments and reviews on Black Panther seem to be very positive.

But doesn’t Black Panther contain strong black female leads?  Well, sure it does.  But when you base characters on mythological or historical precedents, rather than the pure idiocy of modern hippie Bechdel feminism, the film and its characters tend to be more highly regarded.

This presents a particularly difficult scenario for Star Wars apologists (both fans and Lucasfilm representatives alike) who have attempted to blame waning box office, waning toy and merchandise sales, and fan criticism on racism, sexism, and/or misogyny.  These things don’t seem to be affecting the massive success of Black Panther one bit.  Disney/Lucasfilm and its sycophants may have to hunt for a new bugaboo to blame.

UPDATE:  Apparently the forever dissatisfied SJW ignorati are complaining about Black PantherFigures.
