'Black Panther' Sets Marvel Pre-Sales Record for First 24 Hours

Share

Disney, which owns Marvel, has been promoting the movie heavily. T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) is now king of Wakanda following the death of his father, T'Chaka (John Kani), but there's no time for orientation. "Dora Milaje are women who have pledged their lives to the security of the kingdom". Though presales have been great, it remains to be seen if Black Panther will repeat Civil War's $179 million opening.

The two most prominent characters in the Dora Milaje are Okoye (Danai Gurira) and Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o), who seem to be a bit at odds with each other. As T'Challa comes into his role as Wakanda's new king, he'll be forced to reevaluate certain traditions and, in a way, Okoye represents the old guard versus the new.

As far as the action goes, the Dora Milaje are trained to fight as one unit.

The trailer also includes an extended look at an action-packed auto chase scene in the film where Black Panther is seen leaping across a highway. They move and strike in unison, which is a fairly unique way of waiting.

Earlier this week, ticket site Fandango reported that "Black Panther" was able to set Marvel pre-sales record for its first 24 hours. Let's hope that they remember that trick when they are facing thousands of Thanos' army a few months later in Avengers: Infinity War.

One of the stars of the movie is Lupita Nyong'o, she is an Oscar victor, but that doesn't necessarily mean she can get tickets to her own movie. "It's one of the biggest and most anticipated movies to ever open in the month of February, and its trailers have electrified the internet".
