Learn About Black Panther's Warriors of Wakanda

Academy Award victor Lupita Nyong'o said she cannot get tickets to the Los Angeles world premiere of Black Panther - a movie that she is starring in - because the movie has experienced record-breaking pre-sales and she couldn't nab any tickets in time. Disney, which owns Marvel, has been promoting the movie heavily. It's opening in February, once thought to be a dead zone for films, and it's facing very little competition for tentpole dollars.

The women of Wakanda are kicking ass and taking names in this featurette from Marvel's upcoming "Black Panther".

"Black Panther's initial presales blew past mid-range expectations earlier this week", BoxOffice Pro reports.

Here's a synopsis: Marvel Studios' 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.

"Captain America: Civil War" opened in May of 2016, and is the 15th-highest worldwide grosser, with $1.15 billion. Black Panther the movie, directed by Ryan Coogler, will be the first Marvel movie with a predominately black cast.

Additionally, Black Panther is ramping up excitement because the marketing materials for Ryan Coogler's endeavor makes it look cool, unique, powerful, sexy and thrilling. "It's one of the biggest and most anticipated movies to ever open in the month of February, and its trailers have electrified the internet". On Wednesday, the actress posted a video that she had filmed on Tuesday about the in the first 24 hours of availability for tickets. Obviously, Nyong'o is going to get tickets some other way. You might want to circle a date, and soon, because this one will be playing to packed houses for at least its opening weekend.
