'Black Panther' Poised To Pounce On BO: Advance Ticket Sales Beating 'Captain America: Civil War'

Coincidentally the Black Panther was in this movie too.

Ticket pre-sales are underway for Marvel's Black Panther and Fandango has announced that the film has set a new record for the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the most pre-sale tickets sold in the first 24 hours. "It's January 9, and yesterday the Black Panther tickets went on sale", Nyong'o said. The forthcoming Marvel film just dethroned 2016's Captain America: Civil War as Fandango's best-selling MCU film in 24 hours after advance tickets went up for sale on Monday night, January 8. "Coming into this movie you're seeing him dealing with the responsibility of becoming the new king". Civil War kicked off the opening of summer 2016 during the first weekend of May with $179M. Long live the King! While films starring and created by black talent have long had a place at the movie theater and reliably made their money back, their reach and budgets have often been limited thanks in part to an executive-level reticence to invest in black narratives. "There were no seats, and I was unable to buy tickets to see Black Panther on opening night", she said with an amazed chuckle.

According to a few industry estimates before tracking (via Deadline), Black Panther will likely gross somewhere between $80-85 million, with a possible shot at over $100 million in its opening weekend.

Black Panther also Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, with Angela Bassett, with Forest Whitaker and, returning from Avengers: Age of Ultron, Andy Serkis. Lamar and Tiffith will collaborate with Coogler directly in the creation of music specific to the needs of the film.
