Is "Black Panther" a billion-dollar movie?

Is

Marvel Studios has released a new featurette for Black Panther, looking at the superhero's personal bodyguards, the Dora Milaje. In addition to the scenes that are revealed that increase our anticipation for this brilliant film, Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o and Danai Gurira explain what makes their characters tick when it comes to combat. Viewing figures for "Black Panther's" first trailer last summer were so high, the teaser immediately became one of the three most-watched Marvel trailers in its first 24 hours.

The featurette provides new glimpses of the Dora Milaje in action, with their elegant and fluid fighting style. And Nakia has one fight sequence in some kind of casino, which would not be out of place in a James Bond film.

Lakers Beat Spurs, Extend Winning Streak
Clarkson is averaging a hair under 14 points per game with three assists and just under three rebounds as well. Brandon Ingram led the Lakers with 26 points, while Lamarcus Aldridge led the Spurs with 20 points.

Aside from the action, what really stands out in all the footage is the intricate and stunning production design by Hannah Beachler (who worked on Moonlight and Creed) and the costume design by Ruth E. Carter (Selma). Disney, which owns Marvel, has been promoting the movie heavily. According to Fandango, "Black Panther" advanced ticket sales have even surpassed "Captain America: Civil War", the previous record holder. As T'Challa comes into his role as Wakanda's new king, he'll be forced to reevaluate certain traditions and, in a way, Okoye represents the old guard versus the new. 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. He's anxiously awaiting to see Black Panther claw its way up the box office charts this winter.
