"Black Panther" Is Most Tweeted About Movie Ever

"Black Panther" keeps breaking all kinds of records.

(AllHipHop News) Superhero blockbuster "Black Panther" has become Twitter's most-mentioned movie ever.

The Marvel smash hit, starring Chadwick Boseman as the titular character, was tweeted about more than 35 million times, according to social media figures released on Tuesday.

That means "Black Panther" was more popular online than "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," which previously held the title following its release in late 2015.

The most recent installment of the sci-fi franchise, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," is currently ranked third.

According to Twitter analysts, the most tweets about "Black Panther" originated in the U.S., while fans in the U.K. and Thailand came second and third, respectively.

"Black Panther" has continued to break box office records since its release last month, and has just secured its fifth straight week atop the North American chart - the first film to do so since "Avatar" in 2009.

Its global gross has only continued to grow, earning more than $1.2 billion to date.
