‘Black Panther’ has officially hit theaters and it’s certified lit.
Disney is already reporting that the film has grossed $25.2 million, which is the second best Thursday ever for a Marvel movie (behind Avengers: Age of Ultron, which grossed $27.6 million).
From people dressing up to some of the reported activities that took place at theaters, y’all really outdid yourselves.
See some of the best Twitter had to offer from Thursday (February 15)’s opening-day screenings across the world.
Just saw #BlackPanther and I kid you not... a brotha was in the back of the theater grilling rib tips and selling plates for $10.— Kofi-mayne (@Kofimagne) February 16, 2018

I have tears in my eyes exiting the theater. So overwhelmed with emotion and pride and joy and wonder. Wow. Wow. Wow. #BlackPanther— Robinne Lee (@robinnelee) February 16, 2018
I am forever changed after watching #BlackPanther yesterday. I literally walk different now. This film has made me want to treat myself and my people even better. I have never been so sad leaving a theater knowing I couldn't buy a one way ticket to Wakanda and never look back. pic.twitter.com/atCOVwPy1W— NOVA sparks (@_inthenova) February 16, 2018
Favorite #BlackPanther memory? The lights turning on in the packed theater as the movie ended & seeing kids cross their hands over their chest as they left, saying “Wakanda forever.” with these smiles on their faces, faces full of pride. It was unifying. #Marvel10YearSweepstakes— sebastian barnes (@marvelunsolved) February 16, 2018
So #BlackPanther was everything I'd hoped for. Visually original and gorgeous, bravely facing the history of colonialism and persecution, and balancing justifiable rage with empathy and hope for a prosperous future.— Patrick S. Tomlinson (@stealthygeek) February 16, 2018
It could be a watershed moment.
