Even Lupita Nyong'o can't get her hands on 'Black Panther' tickets

Even Lupita Nyong'o can't get her hands on 'Black Panther' tickets”

But judging from the newest featurette for Marvel's upcoming Black Panther film, the Dora Milaje are going to be something much more on the big screen. Why wouldn't it? It's the latest from Marvel Studios, a comic-book movie house that even figured out how to make Thor sequels entertaining.

Black Panther doesn't hit theaters for a little over a month, but the movie is already breaking records by selling more advance tickets in its first day of sales than any other Marvel Cinematic Universe title that came before it.

The heroic adventure opens on February 16, which is part of the four-day President's Day holiday weekend and adjacent to Valentine's Day which falls on a Wednesday this year, per Deadline. Ryan Coogler's wildly anticipated solo adventure tops the previous record-holder, Captain America: Civil War, which benefitted from being a semi-Avengers adventure, and marking the debut of Spider-Man (Tom Holland) into the MCU.

"Black Panther's initial presales blew past mid-range expectations earlier this week", BoxOffice Pro reports.

"Black Panther" follows T'Challa who, after the events of "Captain America: Civil War", returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda to take his place as King.

"Captain America: Civil War" opened in May of 2016, and is the 15th-highest worldwide grosser, with $1.15 billion.

Black Panther opens February 16th, so be sure to grab your tickets! On Wednesday, the actress posted a video that she had filmed on Tuesday about the in the first 24 hours of availability for tickets. Looks like Ryan Coogler will get a bigger paycheck for Black Panther 2.
