'Black Panther' is heading for a record-breaking box office weekend

'Black Panther' is heading for a record-breaking box office weekend

From all accounts, the audience at the MoMA enjoyed every moment and post-event fans such as Tituss Burgess and Leslie Jones could be heard giving a rundown of their favorite movie moments.

No, it's an exceptional film - Marvel or otherwise.

"Black Panther" could easily become the biggest February opening in history, toppling "Deadpool", the R-rated superhero film from 20th Century Fox that brought in $132 million when it opened in 2016.("Deadpool" also holds the four day President's Day opening record at $152 million).

The world of Wakanda is nothing like what you have seen ever before. T.I. is helping to make that happen for 300 lucky fans, as the rapper announced via Twitter that he would team up with Walmart to give out tickets to families in Atlanta to watch Black Panther.

Sounds like a lot more going on than just a superhero movie. "All of the emotions and aspects of a character can be shown and expressions can be shown through that accent".

With every purchase through Fandango, you get a free Black Panther poster. I'm emotional at the response that people of color have given this movie.

"Black Panther's" impact is also noted for its positive image of black women, said David Gorden, the editorial assistant of Lion Forge.

What is Ryan Coogler's directing style like?

It is nearly like peering at a black-and-white photograph with the blacks and whites reversed. The sets, the costumes, the props are a flawless blend of African symbols, traditions, and the high-tech shenanigans you would see in a James Bond or Avengers movie. According to the comic story, it is the Warrior Falls, where the King of Wakanda aka the Black Panther gets his corronation.

T'Challa's sister Shuri, is wonderfully played by Letitia Wright. Daniel Kaluuya from Get Out in a very different sort of role as a childhood friend of T'Challa's, relative newcomer Winston Duke making a VERY strong impression as M'Baku, essentially leader of "The Big Strong Dude Tribe" and Andy Serkis is an absolute riot as Klaw. Lupita Nyong'o, Martin Freeman, Danai Gurira, and Forest Whitaker perform below standard.

For starters, it features a black superhero in the blindingly white pantheon of Marvel characters.

Although our hero, T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman), hails from the African country of Wakanda - a technological wonder powered by the natural resource vibranium - "Black Panther" is Coogler through and through, with a storyline that originates on the streets of Oakland, Calif.

Once the final credits ended (do NOT leave until the very last credit rolls) all I could say was 'wow'. He said that he has loved superheroes his whole life and he never misses the movies when they come out, but this one was something special, because he has never seen black people represented like that. "I can't wait for Halloween to see everyone dressing up as the Dora Milaje [the female special forces in the film], Black Panther and Killmonger [the super villain Jordan portrays]".

Not really, to be honest. That was the really important thing. Is there any one cast member that most affected their character?

There's lots to like about the Black Panther's first solo outing; with just a few quibbles over narrative issues, some clunky time changes, and a request for a little more humour next time.

What separates Black Panther from the other Marvel heroes?

"I was like, "Is this a Marvel movie?' Because this is deep, this goes places, you know, and I was so in awe of his courage to tell such a bold story and to do so without compromising on the 'Wow" factor", she said.
