"Black Panther" Movie is Outselling "Star Wars" and "Captain America: Civil War"

Black Panther (2017) - T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman), Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan)

The Black Panther movie is off to a huge start with advanced tickets selling more than other anticipated movies like "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" and "Captain America: Civil War".

While there are no final tracking numbers, Deadline reports that after advanced ticket sales started on Monday it's already pulling in huge numbers.

Fandango reports that the Black Panther movie is sold more presale tickets in its first 24 hours than "Captain America: Civil War" which opened to a huge  $176 million in its first weekend in the summer of 2016. Up till now Captain America 3 was Marvel's best selling movie in advanced ticket sales.

Alamo Drafthouse in New York says it sold more tickets than Star Wars movies like "The Last Jedi".

Marvel took a huge gamble by taking the unprecedented step of making a movie with a minority lead, directed by a black director based on a little-known superhero.

But the gamble looks like it's paying off as the movie is being embraced by an audience starving for representation and movie fans in general.


Official Synopsis: "After the events of Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, King T'Challa returns home to the reclusive, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to serve as his country's new leader. However, T'Challa soon finds that he is challenged for the throne from factions within his own country. When two foes conspire to destroy Wakanda, the hero known as Black Panther must team up with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje, Wakanadan special forces, to prevent Wakanda from being dragged into a world war."
