It's being helmed by Fruitvale Station-director Ryan Coogler, and has an all-star cast including Michael B. Jordan, Get Out's Daniel Kaluuya, and Lupita Nyong'o, who apparently couldn't get tickets to her own movie because it sold out so quickly.
It sounds insane, considering Black Panther isn't one of the handful of main characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (by main we mean Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk). Unfortunately, that means lots of people couldn't get their hands on opening night tickets, including one of the film's stars.
But the levels of expectations for "Black Panther" have just risen exponentially, as Fandango have confirmed that it has sold more advance tickets in their first day on sale than any other film in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The highly-anticipated movie stars Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa/Black Panther, the king of the fictional African country of Wakanda and popular Marvel Comics superhero.
Black Panther is set to be one of the most successful Marvel movies of all time judging by its record-breaking ticket presales.
"Black Panther is riding an incredible wave of momentum right now", says Fandango editor Erik Davis. And this is why Frederick Joseph, a 28-year-old Marketing Consultant from Astoria, NY created a GoFundMe on Jan 5 to support children of Harlem's Boys and Girls Club to see it.
How New York Is Fairing So Far
So New York residents would still pay the same amount in total taxes, with less going to Uncle Sam. He said that this disparity can only get worse under the newly passed tax reform.
Frederick Joseph, an activist from NY, has started a GoFundMe campaign to allow disadvantaged children in Harlem see the up-and-coming Marvel Film Black Panther.
Black Panther is a little over a month away from being released and the excitement for this film is already very high. It's still unbelievable to see how much excitement a film full of black superheroes is generating.
In the film as Prince T'Challa he was the hero who really seemed impacted by Captain America and Iron Man's showdown.
As of this writing, the campaign has generated more than US$36,000, even though its target goal was only $10,000.
There is nothing that can stop the Black Panther hype train.
"Black Panther" will be released on cinemas on February 16.
