‘Black Panther’ Movie Premiere Celebrates African Royalty

Stars of the much-anticipated Black Panther film graced the purple (red) carpet on Jan. 29 for the official movie premiere in Los Angeles. The Marvel comic adaptation starring Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o and Michael B. Jordan is set to hit theaters on Feb. 16. Celebrities and event goers stunned in their African royalty inspired garb. Social media erupted in a unison praise of the regality of the film premiere’s ambiance.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, film director Ryan Coogler said, “I think the question that I’m trying to ask and answer in Black Panther is, ‘What does it truly mean to be African?'” The Black Panther, played by Chadwick Boseman, is said to be “someone with the arrogance of Shaft, the coolness of Obama and the hot-headed impulsiveness of Kanye West.”

The film’s plot takes place after the story in Captain America: Civil War when T’Challa (played by Boseman) returns to his homeland to take the throne after his father’s death.
