Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
There has been a huge amount of press surrounding this film. From trailers and posters to make-up and singles, social media has been abuzz with news!
Yesterday, at The Walt Disney Company’s earnings call, CEO Bob Chapek commented, “Ryan Coogler has delivered another culture-defining film … evidenced by advance ticket sales.”
A few days ago, we covered Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s historic premiere in Nigeria. Deadline reported that it was “the first time a Marvel movie has held a premiere locally.”
A large group of actors, filmmakers, and press were there to celebrate the black carpet affair. Reportedly, by Friday, advance ticket sales are expected to be in the $60 million – $65 million range.
This would rank it above the original Black Panther, which brought in $55 million in advance ticket sales. It will be hard to beat the first movie, being that it made history.
Debuting to $202 million domestically from Feb.16-18, 2018, it was a huge success. It turned into a cultural phenomenon, earning over $1.34 billion at the worldwide box office.
Wakanda Forever‘s cast includes Angela Bassett, Lupita Nyong’o, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Danai Gurira, Florence Kasumba and Martin Freeman. Tenoch Huerta and Dominique Thorne join the group as Marvel’s newest members.
The soundtrack is already available for purchase on iTunes. Included is Rihanna’s highly anticipated single, ‘Lift Me Up,’ a tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman.
It’s obvious that fans are excited about this Marvel film! The movie is already a success as Black Panther: Wakanda Forever surpasses $45M in advance U.S. ticket sales!
