Very rarely do we see movies in the theater once, let alone twice. Black Panther was one of the few exceptions.
The first time I saw this latest installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we sat in the front row in a 3D showing. It was intense to say the least, and made me appreciate the film as an explosive, adrenaline-pounding adventure.
The tale of Prince T’Challa –fresh off the events of Captain America: Civil War– went on to become the third biggest movie of all time domestically with over $665 million and in the global top 10 of all time with over $1.3 billion. It was the first film in eight years to spend five weeks at No. 1.
Because so much of the story was lost for me in the spectacle, we decided to give it another go on the big screen. Suffice to say, not only does it stand up as a popcorn-shoveling blockbuster, but it also stands on its own as a cerebral sci-fi flick. Chadwick Boseman does an admirable job ingratiating himself to Marvel fans as the titular hero. Michael B. Jordan also turns in one of the best villain performances since the Red Skull. It is definitely one of those superhero movies that warrants multiple viewings.
Through the 4K Cinematic Universe Edition, fans will experience the exhilarating adventure in stunning 4K Ultra HD with next-generation high dynamic range (HDR) visuals and Dolby Atmos immersive audio. Never-before-seen extras feature commentary from director Ryan Coogler; deleted scenes; outtakes; and several making-of featurettes, which detail the Black Panther’s evolution, the remarkable women of Wakanda, the history of T’Challa’s proud nation, and the cosmic origin and technological applications of vibranium. Also included are a roundtable discussion with “Black Panther” filmmakers and writers; a featurette tracing the countless connections between heroes, characters and storylines within the Marvel Cinematic Universe; and an exclusive sneak peek at “Ant-Man and the Wasp.”
