Marvel Studio's latest superhero film, Black Panther, has brought in $361m (£257.1m) on its opening weekend.

US audiences contributed the most to that figure but South Korea topped the international markets, contributing $25.3m, as the film includes scenes shot in the country's port city of Busan.

Director Ryan Coogler told the BBC in February that he had never worked on a film where people had been so excited about it, even before cameras had started to roll.

It is the first Marvel superhero film with a predominantly black cast.
