With a burgeoning box office now approaching a whopping billion bucks, it would seem that Marvel has a real hit on their hands with their Black Panther film. Directed by Ryan Coogler, the wunderkind who also helmed the hits Creed and Fruitvale Station, this remarkable film blazes a new path in movie history. With incredible cinematography and a storyline that appeals to all kinds of moviegoers, this movie also features a bombastic soundtrack by rapper Kendrick Lamar.
Not only have the Black Panther returns surpassed that of Deadpool, but the amazing action film has also topped Spider-Man. Starring Chadwick Boseman as the heir to the Wakanda throne, the movie also features a dazzling array of recognizable supporting actors. Angela Bassett stuns in the role of the Black Panther’s mother, while Lupita Nyong’o lights up the screen as his luminous love interest. Although Andy Serkis usually stars in motion-capture films, his face can actually be seen in this movie. Playing the maniacally evil Ulysses Klaue, Serkis shines during car chase scenes and other exciting action segments of the film.
Michael B. Jordan’s thrilling portrayal of Erik Killmonger has been lauded by many Black Panther fans as well, with his incredibly strong acting scenes and impressive physique. After all, Killmonger is renowned for his skills as a warrior—and Jordan clearly put in some time at the gym to create a realistic portrayal! Of course, this isn’t the first time that Jordan has teamed up with Coogler. His brilliant turn in Creed was extremely well-received as well. With an all-star cast and an amazing script, it’s no surprise that fans of this film are already clamoring for the next installment of Wakandan brilliance.
