According to a recent Fandango poll, "Black Panther" was the second most popular 2018 film on the ticket-selling platform behind the spring's "Avengers" flick.

Movie ticket site Fandango, has reported that the film has set a record for the most ticket sales for a Marvel film within the first 24 hours, reports The Hollywood Reporter. Civil War cashed in $179 million during its opening weekend two summers back.

A study also done on flu vaccination said that it can significantly reduce a child's risk of dying from influenza. There have been 3,854 total flu-associated hospitalizations in OH since flu season began last October.


On Wednesday, it was revealed that advanced ticket sales for Black Panther are beating those of 2016's Marvel hero mash-up movie Captain America: Civil War, indicating that the film will make major waves at the box office come February. "Coming into this movie you're seeing him dealing with the responsibility of becoming the new king". Coincidentally the Black Panther was in this movie too. Black Panther opens on February 16, which is part of the four-day President's Day holiday weekend and adjacent to Valentine's Day which falls on a Wednesday this year. I'm predicting that Black Panther will easily beat that opening. Currently, non-Disney estimates before tracking believe Black Panther will post a $80M-$85M start with a possible shot at $100M-plus. The album will feature music from and inspired by Marvel Studios' Black Panther film including the lead single, "All The Stars", featuring Kendrick Lamar and label mate SZA, produced by Sounwave.

Directed by Ryan Coogler from a script he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole, Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa, Michael B. Jordan as Erik Killmonger, Lupita Nyong'o as Nakia, Daniel Kaluuya as W'Kabi, Letitia Wright as Shuri, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Angela Bassett as Ramonda, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue, and Forest Whitaker as Zuri.
