The New Zealand launch of Black Panther draws tantalisingly close with tickets to the hotly-anticipated Marvel blockbuster now on sale.
Opening in cinemas nationwide on February 15th, Black Panther fans are now one step closer to discovering the isolated, technologically-advanced African nation of Wakanda, where T’Challa, played by Chadwick Boseman, returns home to become king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as leader—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk.
A feast for the eyes and ears, Grammy-award winning rapper Kendrick Lamar lends his formidable talent to the Marvel Universe, teaming up with Anthony “Top Dawg”Tiffith to curate and produce “Black Panther: The Album”.
The music compilation features tracks from and inspired by Black Panther including the lead single, “All The Stars,” and marks the first time that “Humble” artist Kendrick has written, produced and performed for a major motion picture.
Kendrick, who was hand-picked by Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, says:
“Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is amazing, from its cast to its director. The magnitude of this film showcases a great marriage of art and culture. I’m truly honoured to contribute my knowledge of producing sound and writing music alongside Ryan and Marvel’s vision.”
A must-see movie, Black Panther is the last Marvel installment ahead of the biggest Marvel Universe team-up ever in Avengers Infinity Wars, in cinemas April 25. Proving popular around the world, tickets have also gone on sale in North America, with Black Panther beating the Marvel Studios’ first day advance ticket sales record.
