Captain America has nothing on Black Panther
Black Panther is the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entry that looks like it’s going to blow our minds and it seems the general movie-going audience agrees as the film has set a new advanced ticket sales mark at Fandango for Marvel films.
Fandango managing editor dropped a tweet on Wednesday morning confirming the news.
Additionally, Davis added in a statement released by Fandango, “Black Panther is riding an incredible wave of momentum right now. It’s one of the biggest and most anticipated movies to ever open in the month of February, and its trailers have electrified the Internet. Tickets have been going fast ever since presales started on Fandango late Monday.”
No concrete numbers for Black Panther or previous Marvel movies were released.
While movie chains and other sites also offer advanced tickets, Fandango is the most popular, giving a good indication of where sales are heading for the film, which hits theaters on February 16.
As Deadline notes, Captain America: Civil War racked up $179 million on its opening weekend in May 2016. Advanced ticket sales don’t necessarily mean Black Panther will hit that number — the box office in February is typically below May’s — but between the buzz and its release over the extended Presidents Day weekend, Panther figures to debut to some damn good numbers.
Besides the general badassness of the film’s trailers, there’s also the news that Kendrick Lamar is producing the corresponding Black Panther: The Album, which includes his new collaboration with SZA, making this one of the more highly anticipated MCU releases in a while.
Yeah, I’m ready.
Jake Gyllenhaal joins ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ sequel as Mysterio
“Jake Gyllenhaal, who once almost replaced Tobey Maguire in director Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2, is now going to face off against Tom Holland’s friendly neighborhood wall-crawler.
The Brokeback Mountain star will join the Sony side of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe as the villain Mysterio. He’ll appear in the upcoming sequel to 2016’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Gyllenhaal all but confirmed the news in a post on his shiny new Instagram account on Wednesday:
The Instagram video features Gyllenhaal reading an old issue of The Amazing Spider-Man, with a glaring cover that announces “The Return of the Man Called MYSTERIO!”
This will be Gyllenhaal’s first real comic book movie. He’s no stranger to big-budget blockbusters (The Day After Tomorrow) or geek-friendly adaptations (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time), but Spider-Man 2 was the closest he ever came to participating in a big screen superhero story.
Precious little is known about the Homecoming sequel, probably due in large part to………………………………………………..”
