MARVEL'S "Black Panther" opened as the most successful movie with a primarily non-white cast of all time, industry data showed Tuesday, raising hopes for a new era of storytelling by filmmakers and actors of color.

Also worth noting, per Buzzfeed, Black Panther earned the second best weekend at the domestic office ever (The Force Awakens is no. 1).

NEW YORK-"Black Panther" scored one of the best second weekends ever with an estimated $108 million in ticket sales, putting it on track to rank among the highest-grossing blockbusters ever. The former record holder, Thor, fell 47% while The Avengers fell 50%.

Steve Smith will guide Rajasthan Royals in IPL 11
Rajasthan will play their first fixture of the 2018 season against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Hyderabad on April 9. In what was a successful season for him, Smith had amassed 472 runs in 15 matches in the last IPL season.

Revealing worldwide collection numbers, Deadline reports that Black Panther has surpassed $300 million in the global market with $83.8 million coming from the second-weekend box office collection. ("The Avengers" occupies the top spot, with $623 million).

After decades of superhero film narratives which have predominantly been both white and male, the astonishing success of Black Panther, in the wake of last year's break-out hit Wonder Woman, has become a source of reflection in Hollywood. Directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the film stars Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, and Kyle Chandler. The comedy, which received a B+ CinemaScore, skewed notably older, with only 14 percent of ticketbuyers age 25 and younger.

This alternate look comes just a day after Park revealed another iteration of how King T'Chaka would have looked in the suit, but this one focused more on him draped with a purple and green sash, which is highly reflective of the Wakandan culture we saw on-screen. Sony's Peter Rabbit took third place with $12.5 million, adding to its $71.3 million three-week total.
