“Black Panther” is selling faster than any superhero movie in history.
Erik Davis, the managing editor at Fandango stated, “The buzz on ‘Black Panther’ is electric. Early screening audiences say it is one of Marvel’s best movies ever, and the positive word-of-mouth is helping drive the movie’s spectacular advance ticket sales.”
The movie isn’t even due to be released for another couple of weeks, but advanced ticket sales already suggest that it couldn’t bring in $133 million opening weekend. In a fandango survey, 97% of respondents said they’re excited for a different kind of superhero movie and 93% said they’re excited to see Chadwick Boseman star in his own movie after “Captain America: Civil War.”
The movie was voted as one of 2018’s most awaited films along with “Avengers: Infinity War.” It also has an all-star cast including Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Michael B. Jordan and Lupita Nyong’o, so it’s sure to have absolutely amazing performances. 2018 will have an unprecedented amount of superhero movies, with plenty of crossovers, sequels and origin flicks. But with its diverse cast, it’s amazing costuming and amazing-looking action sequences, Black Panther definitely stands out among the rest — no wonder it’s selling out weeks in advance.
