  • VERIFY: Fake tweets target Black Panther movie

Fandango announced today that it sold more than 30% of the USA four-day weekend box office dollars for "Black Panther", marking one of Fandango's largest shares of opening weekend for any movie in the company's 18-year history. The movie dethroned The Wizard of Oz, but it's now also ahead of Citizen Kane, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Casablanca, and well, every other film ever made.

"Black Panther", a joint production from Disney and Marvel Entertainment, is now breaking box office records left and right. The Wizard of Oz has a 99 percent rating, but that's only drawn from 110 reviews. "We mobilized our entire portfolio of digital properties to drive ticketing for this blockbuster film, including offering an exclusive poster from Fandango FanShop with a ticketing purchase, to a full suite of "Black Panther" branded movie ticket gift cards, and more". Get Out is ranked fifth, Call Me By Your Name is in sixth, and Paddington 2 is in eighth.

The movement began in January after former ESPN "SportsCenter" host Jemele Hill called out prominent Detroiters to help young children in the city get seats to see "Black Panther".

The movie is the first standalone film to focus on the titular character, the superhero alias of King T'Challa of the fictional country Wakanda, portrayed by actor Chadwick Boseman.

See how "Black Panther" compares to some of the biggest opening weekends of all time.
