Before this weekend, only three movies had ever topped $100 million at the U.S. box office in their second weekend in theaters.

The release of Black Panther has brought that number up to four.

Today Disney announced that in honor of that record-breaking success they're donating a million dollars to the Boys and Girls Club of America to help support science, technology, engineering and math education.

With $108 million this weekend, Marvel's Black Panther joins the First Avengers, Jurassic World and Star Wars: The Force Awakens in that exclusive club.

It's made $400 million in its first 10 days.
