Black Panther is one of the most hotly-anticipated films of the year so far, and that excitement has paid off with the biggest opening day at the UK box office of 2018.
Per Disney, it made £2.67m on its first day of release, topping the opening of Marvel’s last film Thor: Ragnarok.
It looks like Martin Freeman was right when he described it as a film that people “really want” in our exclusive interview, and weekend box office dominance in the UK and all over the world looks sure to follow.
