Just Wow. The small silent wow that grows to reverberating tingling in your whole body and ends with a good ole church shout. The black Pentecostal evangelical kind of Praise Him shout. That’s what I have been going through when I learned I was going to Marvel Studios’ BLACK PANTHER world premiere.
And why the wow? This movie is the personification of true representation for black people on film. The idea that a film starring black people and told from a black experience can be a blockbuster film has always been there. But what hasn’t been is the actual film that personifies this idea, until now.
I literally get a front seat to history as I get to walk the red carpet and celebrate the heroes who brought this film to life along with the amazing story they are telling. Not only is the film directed by the amazing Ryan Coogler but it also features the first ever woman nominated for an Academy Award for cinematography, Rachel Morrison.
Black Panther has set a Marvel record for advance ticket sales. The film, which hits theaters on February 16, set a record for the best first-day advance ticket sales for any Marvel movie! History Making check!
Black Panther 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.
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.
