Disney’s Black Panther Rules Wakanda & Beyond!
Unless you have been on assignment to another planet or someplace that you could not get a connection, you have probably heard about Marvel Studios’ New blockbuster superhero movie “Black Panther”, which follows “T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life. “Black Panther” stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, with Angela Bassett, with Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis. The film is directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Jeffrey Chernov and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. Ryan Coogler & Joe Robert Cole wrote the screenplay.”
Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” hit theatres on February 16, 2018, and by Tuesday had already hit $263 million in sales. Could we see “Avatar” like numbers from this picture? Time will tell but it certainly feels like it has that type of hype and buy in.
