*Advance tickets for “Black Panther” went on sale Monday night and it’s already dethroning “Captain America: Civil War” as Fandango’s best-selling Marvel Cinematic Universe title in the first 24 hours of presales. 

The heroic adventure opens on Feb. 16, which is part of the four-day President’s Day holiday weekend and adjacent to Valentine’s Day which falls on a Wednesday this year, per Deadline.

While industry estimates do not believe “Black Panther” will topple “Civil War‘s” strong opening weekend of $179M, but if it does, “Panter” would become the highest opening of all-time for a February release and the best opening before summer.
