Black Panther 'shatters false Hollywood beliefs' says Will Smith

Black Panther 'shatters false Hollywood beliefs' says Will Smith

Black Panther, directed by African American filmmaker Ryan Coogler ("Creed"), features a star-studded, nearly entirely black cast led by Chadwick Boseman as the first non-white superhero to get his own stand-alone movie in the franchise. The film, which carries an estimated $200 million production budget, had been tracking to bring in between an impressive $100 and $120 million when first projections emerged on January 25.

After just 96 hours, Black Panther turned into one of the biggest movie openings - ever.

People across the country - and world - have been raving about how great the movie is.

Black Panther had North American box office of $202 million over the three-day and $242 million for the four-day weekend.

I highly encourage that everyone go and see this film, but for MCU fans this film is an absolute must-watch.

The Mavericks say that Barnes treated the kids to dinner and a movie and surprised the children who didn't know the National Basketball Association star was taking them.

Black Panther is now playing in theaters! However, the villain Erik Killmonger, played by Michael B. Jordan, is one of the more compelling characters I have seen in any superhero movie, villain or otherwise.

The character of Black Panther and others featured in the film will appear in the upcoming May release, Avengers: Infinity War.

As with every movie, the development process of Black Panther was one in which each scene was carefully considered-right up through the end. However, when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T'Challa's mettle as King and Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the entire fate of Wakanda and the world at risk.

The importance of what director Ryan Coogler and company did with this film can not be overstated. But you can't have a Shuri movie without T'Challa and you can't have a Shuri movie without Ramonda and Nakia and the rest of the Dora Milaje and Okoye.

While the figures above aren't adjusted for inflation, the larger takeaway is that Black Panther is a raging success.
