'Black Panther' claws to the top of box office and critics' radars

Disney  Marvel  MGN

Trolls retooled promotional materials for the film in order to further convince people that the cards will be accepted.

"It was awesome. The music, the action.everything", said Thompson, who is black.

"Unlike a dictator or a president that you see now, he (T'Challa) puts on a suit to deal with the situation".

Boseman portrays King T'Challa, ruler of Wakanda, a technologically advanced society, who conflicts with Michael B. Jordan's Eric Killmonger, who intends to take over the throne. It's received an A+ CinemaScore, the only Marvel film to have done so besides 2012's "The Avengers".

Black Panther opened to a massive $201.8 million in its first weekend at the box office, a number which inflates to $235 million when early screenings from Thursday night are included. It's why some educators, philanthropists, celebrities, and business owners are pulling together their resources to bring children of colour to see it.

"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. In each case, I have urged, cajoled, and implored Blacks to go see these movies, and in most cases to little avail. In fact, for the duration of the film, only three major scenes display the full capacity of the Black Panther in his costume. "Black Panther" follows the titular superhero, played by Marvel alum Chadwick Boseman, in his transition to the secret technological utopia of Wakanda. A lot of celebrities, like former first lady Michelle Obama, took to Twitter to share their reactions to the movie. I don't see "Black Panther" as the game-changer that some critics are proclaiming it to be, but it's a fine, serviceable MCU entry. "I can tell that many people in the black community on campus are eager to watch this movie, because it is a move that celebrates black people and black history". In the footage, the 5th-grade students are shown cheering and dancing upon hearing the news. It is not just the movie but the music given by Kendrick Lamar that adds to the film's popularity and the frenzy caused among fans. Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer announced plans to host a screening in MS "to ensure all our brown children can see themselves as a superhero". The characters of the movie are certainly the best that could bring out the various roles they assumed. We have had many marvelous efforts by Black filmmakers through the years to make quality movies that show Black heroes, pioneers, civil rights and justice fighters, and monumental historical moments in the Black Experience.
