Pouncing off the Screen



Pouncing Back Marvel’s Black Panther releases on February 16th. The action movie is predicted to make at least $120 million dollars opening weekend.

Disney’s Marvel is bringing you to a brand new world that has familiar faces, but a whole new adventure that will take you to worlds unknown.

Audiences last saw the agile Black Panther (played by Chadwick Boseman) in Captain America: Civil War, jumping from building to building, while hunting down the framed Bucky Barnes. Since then, Black Panther a.k.a. King T’Challa has returned to the isolated country of Wakanda.

Upon his return, T’Challa discovers that factions within his country are revolting and trying to claim the throne as their own.

As a result, the Black Panther swiftly springs into action, teaming up with CIA director Everett Ross (played by Martin Freeman) and the Dora Milaje, Wakandan special forces, to protect his home from incoming enemies.

Marvel’s latest action film, Black Panther, isn’t even out yet, and it is already breaking records of all kinds.

Within the first 24 hours of tickets being released for pre-order, Black Panther had already outshone Captain America: Civil War, snatching its place at the top for most tickets sold for pre sale. Despite the hype for the film, Black Panther was unable to beat its former comrades in the battle for first place.

This blockbuster film is set to break records this February at ticket booths all over the world. It is predicted to make at least $120 million dollars, the eighth highest grossing Marvel movie opening weekend.

Not only is Black Panther forecasted to be successful in the box office, but it is also famous for its predominantly black cast.

Boseman comes pouncing back onto the screen, playing the intimidating superhero we both know and love.

Black Panther, also, has many Oscar-nominated actors and actresses in the film such as Lupita Nyong’o and Angela Bassett.

This riveting array of cast members is bringing their special skills to the screen to inspire audiences of all ages, all over the world.

In addition to an all-star cast of award-winning performers, Marvel has brought on an astonishing new film-maker to make this movie the best it can be.

Ryan Coogler is the thirty-one year-old director of Black Panther. He has directed hits such as Creed and Fruitvale Station.

And don’t forget about how Kendrick Lamar teamed up with Marvel to create Black Panther: The Album will be released on February 9th.

With all this crazy commercialization going on for what may be one of the best Marvel movies of 2018, Black Panther could be the most successful Marvel movie of all time.

In addition, audiences are most looking forward to the bigger, jam-packed Marvel movie coming out in May: Avengers: Infinity War. It is so “jam-packed” because it will have all the actors from every Marvel movie ever. From Avengers to Guardians of the Galaxy, this new superhero movie will have it all and audiences are pumped.

Avengers:Infinity War may just surpass Black Panther come May, but only time will tell.

The Black Panther will be battling new villains this Valentine’s Day weekend. So make sure to grab that special someone and head to theaters February 16th!
