Black Panther pre-screening: MTN excites customers at Silverbird cinemas

Black Panther pre-screening: MTN excites customers at Silverbird cinemas

The pack, available at £2.49 on PlayStation® 4 and Steam and at £2.39 on Xbox One suggested retail price, adds a level and characters inspired by Marvel Studios' upcoming film, Black Panther, which released in cinemas nationwide on the 13th February. The production has been backed by Hollywood juggernaut Disney, which has given the film the proper funds to recreate Wakanda in a most realistic and technically-savvy manner.

"Black Panther" is cased in a fictional African Town called Wakanda, whose people are most unassuming but highly tech-savvy. The auto is designed with afrofuturist design principles in mind, evident in its sleekness and rich attention to detail. There have been extensive fundraising efforts to help children all over the country see the film, and before its release, the Ryan Coogler-directed reel is already slated to become a blockbuster. Equal parts traditionalist with a tinge of futurism, the clothing, akin to the Lexus automobile, updates more traditional motifs for a modern demographic. It's also the first Marvel movie with a black title character since the studio launched its cinematic universe with 2008's "Iron Man".

Black Panther also challenges the common portrayal of women in superhero films as the damsel in distress who needs saving, as the women in this film are from that.

Wakanda, nearly a character in itself, subverts the stereotype of Africa as victim by positing an affluent, resource-rich, never-colonized utopia doing its own soul-searching over taking in refugees from poorer nations. The starring role is played by Chadwick Boseman, with a supporting cast of well-known actors such as Michael B. Jordan (of Creed) and Daniel Kaluuya (of 2017's Oscar-nominated hit Get Out). Like all the best comics movies, this one's got a villain (Michael B. Jordan) so compelling he almost steals the show from the hero (Chadwick Boseman).

Meanwhile, Everett Ross watches bemused from the back of the room as delegates scoff at the hubris of Wakanda which - let's not forget - they believe to be an nearly entirely rural agrarian nation.

That alone would be an impressive feat, but "Black Panther" really excels thanks to its rich array of characters and performances.


The Marvel Cinematic Universe is now getting a lot of praise for offering up Black Panther, their latest critically-acclaimed movie which has a cast that nearly entirely consists of black actors and actresses. We see black people being the hero and the villain.

No track in "Black Panther: The Album" falls totally flat on its face and all range from pretty enjoyable to incredible. As such, it frees the filmmakers from having to accommodate any setting up or foreshadowing of future films and gives them much more room for the movie to breathe and find its footing.

With five million posts, "Black Panther" is the most tweeted-about movie of 2018 - ahead even of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi"-and is outperforming "The Hunger Games" and "Beauty and the Beast" in pre-sales".

TDE's own Kendrick Lamar spearheads the effort.

"Another cool factor: "On Twitter, when you you type "#BlackPanther" you get an emoji of the Black Panther mask.

Chadwick Boseman: "I can't answer that right there". So my attitude was, I'm not even going to try to appeal to some of the core comic-book fanbase, because if they couldn't appreciate Priest, then there is just no pleasing them. By not caring what the audience thinks, we plugged into exactly what the audience wanted. Hype for the new film, which is now sitting at 97 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, is at an all-time high for superhero moveies.
