“Insecure” star Issa Rae might have just delivered the best advertisement Black Panther could receive. Everyone’s favorite HBO heavyweight has pulled through with a serious salute to the upcoming Marvel Studios must-see.
After attending last night’s Hollywood premiere, Issa couldn’t stop talking about the strives Black Panther makes for African Americans in Hollywood cinema.
“Ohhh! Black Panther, Black Panther, Black Panther, Black Panther – I’m pregnant. The movie impregnated me. Chad Boseman could get it. Michael B. Jordan is the best villain I have ever seen in my life. He could also get it. F*ck me up. … And you know what else? I love Blank Man. I love Meteor Man. But even those movies treated our heros like a joke and Black Panther didn’t play that. It was just black excellence. Black heros. Black women – all I know is I’m inspired and every other creator I saw tonight was also inspired. So I can’t wait to see what this sh*t spawns. I can’t wait to spawn some sh*t. Ryan Coogler. Incredible cast. Incredible producer.”
Early Tuesday, Hollywood actor/rapper Donald “Childish Gambino” Glover hit up IG to boast about the film.
Last night, Donald and key Black Panther stars attended the film’s red carpet world premiere in California.
Once advance tickets went on sale, Black Panther broke records in purchases.
Black Panther set records this morning, selling more advance tickets in its first 24 hours than any previous Marvel Studios movie, edging out Captain America: Civil War for the crown. What does this mean for the box office tracking for Black Panther? Well, Captain America: Civil War opened to $179 million in 2016, which could make that a good ballpark for Black Panther‘s opening weekend estimates. However, Civil War hit theaters in May while Black Panther gets an early start to the summer movie season in February — though it does fall neatly on the four-day President’s Day holiday.
