Marvel Comics has totally, awesomely, matter of factly hit pay dirt! If this movie continues on the same path it is on presently for the next 2 months, it would most likely have broken every attendance record and grossing record available in the market. So Marvel Comics have obviously struck oil, gold, diamond etc all at the same time.
Imagine that all the cinemas in Nigeria alone have been packed out, totally sold out since this movie came out! The hype that has followed this movie has been unprecedented and totally unbelievable!
One of the things that the producers and marketers got going for them was that they delivered a movie that all, irrespective of age could watch! So just imagine a movie that young kids and adults are rushing to go watch- that’s already a guaranty for success! That’s not just it alone. The hype before the film came out truly got everyone salivating and totally eager to go watch, so as soon as it landed everyone was already running to go be the first sets to watch.
People might not necessarily believe in this our opinion, but a film of the magnitude of BT focused on Africa, a major consumer market, especially also highlighting a superhero and villian from here, with most of the crew being black also, would most definitely touch a good nerve/chord. There’s a way the movie has affected the general psyche of the people, there is the hero vibe in our subconscious that has been touched, which is bringing a feel good vibe to the fore.
Has the movie lived up to the unprecedented hype/hoopla that preceded it? Ooo most definitely yes. It’s a whole package- drama, thrill, action, comedy, all in one. The cinematography, the cast, the acting ….even the fictional Wakanda, which is one of the richest fictional country in the world all adds up to make it a wholesome experience. Do you all even know that T’Challa the Black Panther is the wealthiest super hero in the whole universe of all time? Richer than the billionaire IronMan (Tony Stark) and the multimillionaire Batman (Bruce Wayne) combined?
Would we advise people to go catch the film? Most definitely yes! It’s a 2 hour plus that’s super fun and worth the money and the noise! A good movie no doubt in a season of many craps or should we say bullshits!
Check out the awesome cast of one of the year’s best movies no doubt, from Chadwick Boseman T’Challa-Black Panther to Michael B. Jordan- Erik Killmonger to Forest Whitaker- Zuri and Daniel Kaluuya–W’Kabi to Lupita Nyong’o-Nakia to Angela Bassett-Ramonda to Danai Gurira-Okoye to Letitia Wright-Shuri and others not mentioned or not shown here, who all gave super good accounts of themselves.
The pictures above shows 8 of the main casts, a case of melanin overload on steroids. 8 proud black people, who are all extraordinary talents. There just has to be a sequel!
