Film - Black Panther


A new poster and trailer for Black Panther...

“Black Panther” 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.

Directed by Creed helm Ryan Coogler, who also co-wrote the screenplay with American Crime story writer/producer Joe Robert Cole, the film stars Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira, Lupita Nyong'o and Michael B. Jordan.

Interesting trivia - The music in the trailer uses the Gil-Scott Heron poem/song The Revolution Will Not Be Televised, first recorded in 1970 and referring to slogans used by Black Power gangs in the 1960s - including The Black Panthers...

52 years after the comics were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Black Panther will hit cinema screens next February 16th.
