The movie “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is now in theaters and shattering records in Africa. The Marvel Studios Super Hero blockbuster, which hits theaters on November 11, 2022, has already amassed the largest opening weekend of all time in West Africa. The sequel to Ryan Coogler’s 2018 smash “Black Panther” attracted crowds throughout the continent, with slightly under 300,000 recorded attendances.

With a box office total of 240 million in West Africa, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” became the greatest industry opening weekend of all time. The movie made Kes 25M, making it the highest post-pandemic opening in East Africa as well as the biggest opening weekend box office of 2022.

The blockbuster’s R16.5M in Southern Africa made it the greatest opening weekend box office of 2022. In East and West Africa as well as Southern Africa, the original 2018 version of “Black Panther” continues to rank as the best movie of all time.

The film is also performing well outside of the continent, earning $180 million in its opening weekend to rank as the second-biggest domestic launch. Time quotes the Walt Disney Co as saying that more than 4,396 theaters in the US and Canada saw customers.

The sequel outperformed The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’s $158 million in 2013, shattering the previous high-water mark record for a November opening in North America.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s cast and crew recently descended in Lagos ahead of the film’s release, creating history by holding the first-ever official African Marvel Studios premiere in Nigeria.

On Sunday, November 6, 2022, Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Tenoch Huerta Mejia, and local artists that appear in the movie attended the black-carpet premiere event together with dignitaries and visitors.

On Wednesday, November 9, Johannesburg also hosted the South African Premiere of the movie. On November 9, 2022, the city welcomed Connie Chiume (Mining Tribe Elder “Zawavari”), Dr. Ernest Khalema (the movie’s language and cultural consultant), and regional musicians who contributed to the soundtrack.

Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira), and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba) battle to defend their country from interfering world powers in Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”
