A modern day movement has finally hit theatres. The Marvel superhero movie, Black Panther, has come to the big screen on Feb. 16, 2018 after being announced nearly two years ago. Crowds filled the doors, people poured into the theatres all over the country and people were itching to see the astounding movie. Having a revenue of over $218 million within the first weekend as a box office hit. It has made the most of any February movie ever.

Black Panther is a superhero movie based on the story of the Black Panther from original Marvel comic books. T’Challa is the prince (made king) of the African country of Wakanda. Wakanda is a land that has advanced into technology farther than any other country, even those of America, China etc. With the powers of the Black Panther, a part of T’Challa, he becomes a king with a target on his back. No spoilers as to what happens, but as his spot on the throne is being fought over, the safety of Wakanda and the rest of the world is at stake.

With all of the cultural aspects within the movie, it had a huge impact within the superhero universe of movies. There has never really been a superhero movie or comic book series based wholly on African descent and culture. The actors all played their roles to a tee in every aspect. Michael B.Jordan is probably the best villain next to Heath Ledger in Batman Returns in all honesty. There were many references to the actual black panthers known in history and showcasing the ideas of the same struggles today.

It came to theatres as a hit. It was so well- crafted, certified the movie as fresh. On behalf of Magnet, go check out this movie. Especially with $5 Tuesdays at the Northwoods Cinema 10.
