The internet has been losing its shirts basically since the announcement that there would be an adaptation of Marvel’s Black Panther. It’s only gotten more intense the closer we’ve gotten to the February 16th Black Panther premiere of the movie—It literally beat an advanced ticket sales record! If the movie is even a quarter of the awesome shown from the purple carpet premiere and first reactions after the first screening at Dolby Theatre, audiences are gonna be walking out as the ghosts of their previous selves in February. Everyone is gonna be ded! I mean look at these images and reactions:

Black Panther was incredible, and powerful and everything we need right now. The words “cultural phenomenon” have never felt more appropriate. Everyone pleaseeeee do yourself a favor and go see it.

Just got back from the Black Panther premiere and after party. You will see this movie five or six times. It is everything and then some.

Black Panther. So very good. I cheered and laughed and pumped my fist. I’ve never seen a super hero movie like it. Everybody involved with it deserves a medal and a high five.
