^I like the music in that.
I was so tempted to watch the new trailer because of Kendrick Lemar, but I didn't watch to see any new footage for the film with it being just around the corner.
Black Panther’ Poised To Pounce On B.O.: Advance Ticket Sales Beating ‘Captain America: Civil War
I think it's pretty amazing that the Marvel franchise is still holding strong at the box office considering Black Panther is the 18th film in the franchise, which might the time where the audience experience franchise fatigue (as MCU films have been described as "cookie cutter") or even super hero fatigue. In fact, Black Panther may be the opposite of franchise fatigue but rather be a breath of freshness to the franchise as it's the first MCU film (Luke Cage is not a film) to star a Black character and nearly an all Black cast. Moreover, Black Panther will feature tracks from well known hip hop artists like Kendrick Lemar. It is certainly amazing that Black Panther first 24 hour ticket presales have out paced Captain America: Civil War.
So this happened to Miss Lupita (and many others too)

@THR says @theblackpanther is @MarvelStudios best-selling movie in terms of presales after JUST 24 HOURS! Don’t I know it: I even tried!!!! #Throwback to a video I made last night.

Many congratulations to the cast and crew.
Online Pre-sales are still fairly new and presumably still growing rather a stable benchmark at this time. So I would t read that much into them. Not to say this won’t do great business.
Star Wars is the top U.S. franchise in a lot of ways, but Marvel is the top global franchise. Only 10 years ago the first Iron Man made less than half its box office outside the U.S. At the anniversary mark the next Avengers sequel may make 70% of its box office outside the U.S.
I won't be surprised if Black Panther makes at least $100 million more than Doctor Strange worldwide.
Depends, do Chinese people hate black people like George W. Bush?
George W. Bush is everyone's least favorite black person.
No, not nearly as much as they hate George W.
Edit: Beaten and bettered by my better.
Happy to see a recent interview where Marvel executives explained:
1. He’s “in charge of his own tribe” since apparently Afrikaans don’t have countries or even ethnic groups
2. That his being a superhero and punching idiots in the middle of the night was “much more important” than being a head of state and having millions of lives depend on his decision-making.
Yup. Real excited for this movie.

There's a report that there are two post credit scenes.
One of my favorite movie pundits, John Campea, tweeted:
Every other black person I know who's seen this: "This is amazing, I love what Coogler did and he pushed the boundaries with Marvel, I never wanted the movie to end!"
Wocky: "Pandering nonsense!"
What does it mean to push boundaries “with Marvel?” Having actual characters?
Here's another non-Wocky take from people who get paid to take...
target demo of 15 year olds instead of 12.
Review embargo is already lifted and the movie is at 100% fresh at RottenTomatoes ( 48 reviews for now).
ign have given it 9/10 saying its great though a couple of things fall flat
