New trailers drop every day for upcoming films, but there’s only ONE that is dominating social media right now… Black Panther.
Produced by Marvel Studios, Black Panther is directed by Ryan Coogler and co-written by himself and Joe Robert Cole. The screenplay is based on the comic by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee. The film features a powerhouse cast that includes Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Forest Whitaker, Danai Gurira, and more!
The story takes place following the events of Captain America: Civil War. T’Challa (Boseman) returns home and becomes the new ruler of the kingdom known as Wakanda. He must defend his land from being destroyed by enemies from outside, and inside, the country.
Black Panther is a film that Marvel fans have been waiting for, and it definitely did not go unnoticed. This past week, the trailer has gone viral- dominating social media and quickly becoming one of our most anticipated films. According to ScreenRant, “The film was mentioned in 466,000 new conversations throughout sites like Twitter and Facebook, a tally compiled by the analytics team at the media-measurement firm comScore (via their PreAct measuring service).”
Honestly, I’m not surprised one bit that this trailer is doing superbly well. What’s not to love? Based on this alone, we can tell that the acting will be top notch, the visuals are absolutely stunning, the costumes and FX are spot on, and the story is one we’ve been waiting to see come to life. Clearly, I’m sold.
I can’t wait to see this film and I look forward to the other upcoming trailers and news. Black Panther is set to release in theaters on February 16th, 2018. Will you be watching it? Let us know!
