Black Panther Ticket Sales Beating Captain America: Civil War

Industry estimates do not believe at this point in time that Black Panther will emulate Civil War's opening despite the strong. However, it should be noted that a Fandango survey of more than 8,000 users ranked Black Panther as one of the year's top two most anticipated movies, falling second to Avengers: Infinity War.

Deadline notes that advanced ticket sales do not correlate to opening weekend totals.

At the end of his set, Lamar gave a shout-out to "Black Panther" before the movie commercial kicked in. His mettle is tested when the dissident Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) begins to threaten his rule.


The director of the upcoming Marvel superhero movie, "Black Panther", has offered his thoughts about how the eponymous new hero will transition from his brief role in the hit "Captain America: Civil War" film to his own blockbuster movie. Co-stars Danai Gurira and Winston Duke were named actors to watch in 2018.

The film is directed by Ryan Coogler, who says that T'Challa's (Chadwick Boseman) solo adventures will pick up immediately after the "Civil War".

"In this film, it's the same guy, but you're seeing all of the layers pulled back", Coogler said.


The resume of this star speaks for itself, but Bassett went on about the Black Panther film. Its love of the comics, while also being a specific vision from the creative team right down to Chadwick Boseman's accent, stands out even among Marvel movies.

This will be a contrast to how he appeared in the "Captain America" movie.

If that's the case, Black Panther would not only become the highest opening of all-time for a February release, besting Fox/Marvel's R-rated Deadpool ($132.4M), but the best opening before summer.
