Those are the two competing forces at play between the warriors of Wakanda in this new Black Panther featurette from Marvel Studios.
While industry estimates do not believe "Black Panther" will topple "Civil War's" strong opening weekend of $179M, but if it does, "Panter" would become the highest opening of all-time for a February release and the best opening before summer. And then there's the fact that Black Panther will lead right into the massive team-up movie that is Avengers: Infinity War, so we'll all want to see how Ryan Coogler's film sets the stage for that story.
Directed by Ryan Coogler, the film stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Sterling K. Brown, Andy Serkis and John Kan. It's opening in February, once thought to be a dead zone for films, and it's facing very little competition for tentpole dollars. T'Challa's homeland was briefly glimpsed during the closing moments of Captain America: Civil War, but this will be the first time that Wakanda has been fully depicted in live-action.
