Even celebrities haven’t been able to get enough of it. Scandal star Kerry Washington tweeted, “I’m definitely throwing my wig in somebody’s face to win my next fight #BlackPanther.

In addition to its overwhelmingly positive buzz, Black Panther’s box office has also been attributed to the fact that many celebs and fans, including Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer went out of their way to help raise money to buy hundreds of tickets for disadvantaged youth across the nation.
