Marvel's Black Panther is already breaking records long before its Feb. 16 release date. According to Fandango, Black Panther is outpacing Captain America: Civil War, which was the online ticket vendor’s fastest selling Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, in pre-sale ticket sales within the first 24 hours.
In May of 2016, Civil War opened to $179 million. While advance ticket sales do not directly correlate to the weekend opening totals, it is still important to note.
Helping the hype of the film is the star-studded ensemble put together for the movie. The movie stars favorites like Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Chadwick Boseman, Angela Bassett and Forest Whitaker. Also adding to the excitement for the film are a series of amazing trailers and music curated by Kendrick Lamar.
Blank Panther hits theaters February 16th. Check out the trailer below.
