Black Panther: African fans get into the superhero hype
By Ized Uanikhehi, CNN

Lagos (CNN)Is it a drone? Is it a spaceship? No, it's the African superhero Black Panther!

Welcome to Wakanda! Marvel's highly anticipated film is in movie theaters in a few days time and Africa is feeling the frenzy. On the continent the movie is open for public screening on February 16. Kenyans in Kisumu, hometown of film star Lupita Nyong'o, will get to see it before the rest of Africa on February 13. There's a palpable excitement. While this is still an American film and not the first black superhero movie (there's been Blade, Steel and Hancock to name a few), this feels like the most African: there's African actors, speaking an African language isiXhosa, living in an -- albeit fictional -- African country. Plus with an estimated value of $90.7 trillion, Black Panther is the wealthiest Marvel character of all time.



The father of Lupita Nyong'o, Anyang Nyong'o, wrote in an article for Kenyan newspaper The Star: "There is more to this action-packed movie that one can only discern by reflecting on the messages that the actors keep on passing. And it is a very interesting reflection about Africa's predicament and "the history we have missed to make so far."

Community and Teamwork
The continent is also in a fashion fever, inspired by the costumes in the movie. There is talk in Nigeria and Kenya about dressing in uniform African clothes (called Aso ebi by Yorubas in Nigeria) to express solidarity and community.

The Conscious Negro
@GoziGotTheJuice
To all my fellow Black Kings and Queens out there, we are strictly wearing Afrikan attire to see Black Panther. It's only appropriate to do so. To wear all black is not Afrocentric enough. This film is celebrating our heritage as Afrikan people and we shall express it as such.

It may be no coincidence that one of the major action set-pieces was filmed in Korea....

The Blackest movie filmed in Atlanta and I didn't even get a chance to audition.
Shucks, I think I missed out on a chance to be an extra.
I'm soooo excited for this movie and I KNOW I'm gonna see a few ATLien actors in it...but darnit...I wanted to scratch that off my bucket list.
Oh well...moving on.

Friday can't get here fast enough!

Shoot in aiming higher then that. If it beat out beauty and the beast in presales which was at 174 mil, then I'm aiming for that 180-190k mil 4 day weekend money

I would love to see Black Panther dominate this year's Halloween.

Edit: Let me add "and not in the bad way", for those who understand what I mean



Oh, I know whatcha mean!  ;)

‘Black Panther’ Heading Toward Massive $170 Million-Plus Opening

Disney-Marvel’s “Black Panther” is gaining momentum with forecasts estimating as much as $170 million in North America during the four-day President’s Day weekend, updated tracking shows.

That’s significantly above the first tracking on Jan. 25 for the tentpole, which initially placed the debut in the $100 million to $120 million range for the Feb. 16-19 period.

“Black Panther” should break the Presidents Day weekend record of $152 million, set in 2016 by “Deadpool.” It will easily top the second-highest debut for  the four-day holiday, set in 2015 when “Fifty Shades of Grey” opened with $93 million.

Surveys showed “definite interest” continues to increase to 65% Monday. “First choice” has reached 40% among the general sample.

Online ticketing service Fandango reported Feb. 7 that presales for Disney-Marvel’s “Black Panther” are now outpacing advance sales for all other first-quarter releases in the company’s 18-year history. Critics have been impressed as the film has a 97% “fresh” score on the Rotten Tomatoes review aggregator site.

The superhero tentpole, starring Chadwick Boseman, opens Feb. 16 in more than 4,000 North American theaters, including 3,300 3D locations and more than 400 Imax screens. Previews begin at 7 p.m. on Feb. 15.

Disney said Monday that although tracking at this level is difficult to accurately predict, it anticipates a four-day domestic weekend in the $150 million range. Tracking services have raised their guidance to the $155 million to $172 million range.

Screenings start Tuesday in a trio of international markets in the UK, Hong Kong, and Taiwan followed by Wednesday launches in France, Italy, Korea, Belgium, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Indonesia. Most other markets will be open this weekend, followed by Russia on Feb. 22, Japan on March 1 and China on March 9.

International performance on “Black Panther,” a less-familiar Marvel character, could come in similarly to openings for “Doctor Strange” with $114 million (boosted by Benedict Cumberbatch’s international appeal), “Ant-Man” at $73 million and “Guardians of the Galaxy” at about $80 million.

Boseman stars as T’Challa, who takes over as the king of Wakanda after his father T’Chaka is killed, as shown in “Captain America: Civil War.” The film also stars Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Michael B. Jordan. Ryan Coogler directed the movie from a script he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole.

The character was introduced in “Captain America: Civil War.” “Black Panther” is the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Marvel Studios’ first of three films in 2018, with “Avengers: Infinity War” coming on May 4.

Lionsgate’s stop-motion comedy “Early Man” is also opening domestically on Feb. 16 at about 2,400 locations with expectations of a $7 million launch. Directed by Nick Park, the stop-motion movie is co-financed by the U.K.’s Aardman and France’s Studiocanal. It’s a re-team of the companies following 2015’s “Shaun the Sheep.”

Faith-based distributor Pure Flix is launching Biblical story “Samson” at about 1,200 sites with forecasts in the $3 million range. Taylor James stars in the title role opposite Billy Zane and Lindsay Wagner.
