The moment we’ve all been waiting for is almost here! The Black Panther hits theaters on February 16th, but the Hollywood premiere took place on Monday night, and the reviews are in!
I’ve been to Wakanda, and I may never recover. I am so grateful that our young people will see this film and their minds will be transformed. Congratulations #RyanCoogler —you did that! #blackpantherpremiere #blackpanther

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.

I like rarely weigh in on movies. But, I loved Black Panther. And the guy sitting next to me — Laurence Fishburne — kept saying “Oh, Shit. Oh, SHIT.” Now that’s a review. https://t.co/Q5f8VSSPeD

Also, Ryan Coogler made the film his. The fight sequences had his fingerprints all over them, harkening to what he did with "Creed."
