Marvel’s superhero film Black Panther has made more than a billion US dollars (£794m) at cinemas worldwide.
The film that stood for so much has made history in more ways than one. It’s now the fifth movie based in the Marvel Universe to hit the milestone.
Black Panthers Director Ryan Coogler had the following to say on the films overwhelming success:
“I am struggling to find the words to express my gratitude at this moment.”
“Never in a million years did we imagine that you all would come out this strong.
“Thank you for giving our team of filmmakers the greatest gift: The opportunity to share this film, that we poured our hearts and souls into, with you.”
Our take on the film was slightly different to the majority opinion but you can’t deny the impact the movie has had. For me, what the movie stood for far outweighed the film itself. The movie certainly wasn’t perfect by any means but what it represented resonated louder than anything I saw on screen.
