After Marvel's Black Panther opened to record-shattering numbers last weekend, the flick now sits atop Rotten Tomatoes' list of the top 100 movies ever. It's actually now highest grossing film ever released in February and it's winning in other areas, too.

According to a Fandango survey of more than 1,000 "Black Panther" moviegoers, 61% are considering repeat viewings of Marvel's blockbuster. The Wizard of Oz has a 99 percent rating, but that's only drawn from 110 reviews.

Burnout Paradise Remastered is coming to the PC after the console release
EA and Criterion announced today via the PlayStation Blog that the beloved PS3 racer is getting remastered for the PS4. It featured a unique open world design in Paradise City, where every street corner held a race or event.

Black Panther isn't just a wild success for superhero films, but a resounding refutation of the long-held Hollywood myths that either black audiences weren't worth being specifically catered to at the box office, or that films with predominantly black casts/leads can not sell movies. That puts the Paddington sequel just ahead of cinematic masterpieces like The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Metropolis.

That's a pretty remarkable feat in itself but when you also add into the mix that Black Panther's opening haul has also eclipsed the entire U.S. gross of Justice League, one can't fail to be impressed.

'Dozens' of Russians hurt in Syria attack, says ministry
The U.S. has estimated about 100 pro-Syrian government forces were killed by U.S. strikes to repel the February 7 attack. The coalition warned the Russian military and proceeded to strike the formation, killing up to 100 people.

The movie is the first standalone film to focus on the titular character, the superhero alias of King T'Challa of the fictional country Wakanda, portrayed by actor Chadwick Boseman.

The buzz behind Black Panther was strong but that didn't means its massive opening weekend was any less impressive.
