Ahead of its February 16 nationwide release, Ryan Coogler's "Black Panther" has already broke another record.
The highly anticipated Marvel film scored the biggest opening day of 2018 thus far in the U.K. and Irish box office. According to The Guardian, "Black Panther" "pulled in £2.67m (almost $3.77 million) on its opening day on 13 February, Disney said, delivering the highest-grossing single day at the U.K. box office this year."

This news comes about a month after the film unseated "Captain America: Civil War" to become Fandango's best-selling Marvel movie in the first 24 hours of ticket pre-sales. We have feeling that this is only the beginning of "Black Panther's" record-breaking streak at the box-office. Long live the King!
