Michelle Obama Praises "Black Panther" On Twitter

Michelle Obama Praises

Black Panther cost a staggering $200 million to make-and that figure does not include marketing and advertising costs. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakandan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war. This movie gives that opportunity to see women in a different role.

It's no secret that the Anderson community is proud of its hometown megastar, Chadwick Boseman, and his success as King T'Challa in the new Marvel film "Black Panther". The American public is about 40 percent people of color now, and we know that people of color over-index in terms of media consumption. On Saturday, 312 underprivileged youths were invited to see the film at the Amstar theater courtesy of Boseman, who bought the seats for the children. "It's something that's just delivered big, huge box office", said Hollis. With this kind of debut and generally glowing reviews, it seems like Black Panther will continue pulling in big numbers and changing the outdated wisdom about what makes a successful blockbuster throughout its run. For the first time, Marvel has presented us with a number of fully realised, fleshed-out female characters with agency, personalities, and power all of their own.

Obama's tweet fell in line with other messages she has posted to encourage young people to succeed, and to promote diversity and education.

In just one weekend, the film grossed $192 million, making it one of the largest opening weekends ever. Imax reported $30 million in ticket sales for the three-day weekend. Add to that some unconvincing green-screening and Killmonger's torso clearly being made out of foam (he scars himself whenever he kills someone, to the point where he has more dimples than a golf ball), and you've got a noticeably flawed superhero movie.

"If you look at some of the bigger blockbusters from the a year ago, they were representative of what the audience are looking for, how they're feeling", said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore. "To get to put a character like Okoye up on the big screen, what's better than that?"

"Black Panther" cast hopes combination of African pride, beauty and kick-ass adventure will also mark a cultural shift in the movie industry and beyond.
