Black Panther Ticket Pre-Sales Set 24 Hour Record
“Black Panther” hasn’t hit theaters yet, but it’s already broken a record for Marvel Studios. According to Fandango, Ryan Coogler’s superhero movie is the best-selling Marvel Cinematic Universe movie in terms of presales after its first 24 hours.
This week, the movie opened for advance ticket sales. To date, it has surpassed previous top-seller Captain America: Civil War (which Chadwick Boseman appeared in as T’Challa, the Black Panther).
The movie is also becoming one of the three most-watched Marvel trailers in its first 24 hours. It stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa / Black Panther alongside Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
