Marvel's Black Panther Is The Highest-Rated Live-Action Superhero Movie
In the US, Black Panther will open on Friday and is expected to bring in serious box office numbers here as well.
Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o has been crossing the globe, attending premieres for the movie "Black Panther" from Los Angeles, to Seoul, to London, with all of her Marvelcast mates. Directed by Ryan Coogler, from a screenplay by Coogler and Joe Robert Cole, based on the Marvel Comics series created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Suffice to say, they're not going anywhere.
"Rarely do movies generate this particular type of excitement", said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore. "This film is about embracing where you're from, you know, and identifying with your people in a celebratory way, not in a divisive way", she said.
"To have a movie where we are predominant and out there, very deliberate and purposeful, is awesome", the mayor said.

During shooting of one pivotal fight scene, Kaluuya remembers, "I just looked around and looked at all the crew and looked at all the different tribes fighting". However, when an old enemy Erik "Killmonger" Stevens (Micheal B Jordan) reappears on the radar, T'Challa's alter ego Black Panther is tested when he is drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the world at risk. So they had the guts to do that in the mid-1960s. It's our lives, at least for the time being. Ask him if the hero has superpowers and he'll respond, "Yeah, he does". "We pulled from all of them", he said. "Too often times we see Africa as a place that is wanting and here it's a place that you want to go". The characters got a long history, you know, and it's such a rich stuff to mine. Marvel then hired Reginald Hudlin to rewrite that origin in the 2000s.
"We had to take into account that some things that happened in the 1960s weren't really appropriate for the world of today".
The deepest question of the day was about the cost of self-preservation versus saving the world.
One of the standout tracks, "I Am" features RnB singer, Jorja Smith. The entire cast looks just like them. Make sure youget out this weekend and see this wonderful film in a theater near you.
