BLACK PANTHER Featurette “Good To Be King” Released
Splashims, Marvel’s Black Panther is set to destroy the box office. Fandango is saying people are buying up tickets like hotcakes. And, with its release just over a month away, Marvel wants to make sure we’re all planning on being in a movie theater the weekend of February 16th.
This new featurette “Good To Be King” is short, and doesn’t really provide new footage or information you wouldn’t have if you saw Captain America: Civil War or the trailers for Black Panther. But, it’s Marvel, who cares?! Make Mine Marvel…
Marvel Studios’ Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, with Angela Bassett, with Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
The film is directed by Ryan Coogler and produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nate Moore, Jeffrey Chernov and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. Ryan Coogler & Joe Robert Cole wrote the screenplay.
