BLACK PANTHER KICKS OFF IN CINEMAS THIS FRIDAY
After the hectic week we’ve had in the country, what with the emotionally exhausting political hellscape that ended with former President Jacob Zuma’s resignation on Wednesday, it’s fair to say we deserve a big break. No, seriously…
Fortunately, there’s some light at the end of the tunnel… and it’s epic!
After months of waiting (and getting those outfits you’ve been promising ready, we hope) for what is undoubtedly the biggest black hero blockbuster ever created, Black Panther finally premieres in cinemas on Friday, February 16th!
You can catch the movie at Ster Kinekor theatres nationwide and see the mind-blowing visuals in IMAX, D-BOX, Cinema Prestige, 3D and 2D.
Starring amongst others Lupita N’yongo, Michael B. Jordan, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett, the Marvel Studios production, Black Panther has already broken a few records as global hype peaks ahead of the debut. Set for a massive box office debut, the movie’s recently released soundtrack album also did in amplifying the hype.

The movie’s latest trailer is a beautiful showcase of a futuristic/throwback/Afrocentric and badass experience, a portrait of black awesomeness we don’t see every day in the cinema.
The film 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
