Lupita Nyongo

The full trailer for the Black Panther action fantasy movie is out. The predominately black cast stars newcomer Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa and boasts 2 Oscar winners -- Forest Whitaker and Lupita Nyong'o -- as well as a plethora of bold names including Angela Bassett, Michael B. Jordan and Phylicia Rashad.

The Marvel film is set in the mythical African land of Wakanda. After the death of his father, T'Challa returns home to take his rightful place on the throne as king. But evil challenger Erik Killmonger (played by Michael B. Jordan) stands in his way.

Black Panther is set for theatrical release on Feb. 16, 2018.

    Speaking of mythical African land, has anyone heard of Seychelles? Mahe Island?

    Lupita looking gorgeous as ever ???

  • Trey

    Relax...with the racist rhetoric. The movie has black actors and is being financed and produced by white men.

  • MsPam

    Thank You! I’m so over it!

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Lupita is so beautiful. Hair color is bomb too!

    February 18 is too long of a wait...and I want to see a 1....2....3....4...5..6...7-1000.sequels like we do for every damn thing else.

  • Justlooknout

    I see nothing wrong with what you said, you mean well. You are correct, many times we don't do well in the box office.

  • Justlooknout

    Yes, we were suppose to go for our honeymoon, but we could only take 5 days off. They plane ride is super long. You need an extra day for arrival and departure to catch up on sleep.

  • King Darrius I

    Looks cool, nice to see the celebration of this iconic Black superhero with a major film.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    It doesn't matter who produced it. WE NEED TO CIRCULATE THE BLACK CURRENCY ANY WAY WE CAN. WE SUPPORT THE PROJECT SO THE ACTORS CAN BE ABLE TO PRODUCE THEIR OWN PROJECTS ONE DAY.....SO YOU GO F"CKING RELAX..

  • Rayne

    I'm going to see this. The trailer looks really good.

  • Pamela

    "newcomer Chadwick Boseman".
    I don't think so, he been around for a while now. Check out his filmography Ms Sandra.

  • Django the God

    I had a dream I was in Africa, but it looked like Hawaii.

    So when I woke up, I started searching online and the Four Seasons there resembled my dream.

    It reminds me of the Lil Uzi Vert video.

    That would be nice if you still get to go.

    Chadwick Boseman played baseball player Jackie Robinson in '42' in 2013 and James Brown in 'Get On Up' in 2014. He is also getting ready to play Thurgood Marshall. He has also played this 'Black Panther' character already, In 'Captain America: Civil War', released last year. So he is not a newcomer by any means.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Lol...we know that! Let us have a moment where on the surface things appear alright.
    We know in all things we do, his hands are in our pockets one way or another.
    Doesn't matter how independent you think you are.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Never heard of it...im going to look it up though.

  • King Darrius I

    You're correct about the people producing it! However, that isn't a bad thing at all! The film is produce by white men, a woman, and another minority. The fact that white men found it worth it to produce a film that would feature majority black cast, black director, black writers speaks greatly of the film and how much they believed in it and the profitability of it. I get you're trying to offset the politically incorrect comment made but don't discredit film or integrity or the milestone achievement this is to have this iconic Black Superhero and culture of supremely advance African nation brought to the big screen.

  • Django the God

    Mesmerizing.

  • Dowoop

    This is one of the few movies i will pay to watch in theatres. Michael B Jordan is finnneeee!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Never heard of him.

  • Dowoop

    Yes! most of the time "black movies" are made by the same black producers and sorry to say is now starting to seem like the same thing with the same actors/actresses in every movie.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Yes, just looked it up! It's beautiful, but I must admit I'd be a little bored after the oohs and ahh's wear off. I'm a leo and I must have excitement! Visited Maui a few years ago, I almost lost my damn mind.

  • missmiami305

    I cannot wait for this movie. Anybody know when tickets go on sale?

  • missmiami305
  • missmiami305
  • Django the God

    Could you live there?

    That's more of the countryside right... You mentioning excitement...

  • missmiami305
  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Spike Lee started that trend. Then Tyler Perry and Lee Daniels picked up where he left off. Now you see the same stars in all of their movies.

  • missmiami305

    He trips me out. Love him tho!!! Such a free spirit

  • Ryan

    I rarely go to the movies by choice but will go for this.

  • Django the God

    No doubt.

  • Justlooknout

    Yeah, are still planning to go. He is semi retired and I've been here long enough to take 8 to 10 days. It's a mixture of African, Indian, Chinese and Brits. The Prince went there for his honey moon. They say the FOOD is out of this world. I can't wait to go and buy spices. But I will not be staying at the four season. It's one of my favorite brands, but it's over 1k a night.

  • MythCalledLove

    Wakanda has the world's strongest metal Vibranium. That's what Captain America's shield is made of, Bucky's arm (Winter Soldier Captain Americas best friend). All of the Quinjets are designed by Wakanda (planes Shield & Tony Stark use), and Wolverines spine. Black Panthers armour is all Vibranium. T'Challa (Black Panther) beat every Avenger & Hydras Winter Soldiers. His security chief is Kasumba head of the Dora Miljae (The Adored Ones) squad of elite warrior women who protect the King. She was the bald one with him in Captain America Civil War. "Moved or be moved" is what she told Black Widow. She had already kicked Black Widows ass. Oh! And he was married to Storm but it was annulled. Yes I am a comic book geek Marvel/DC Comics. Before you go see it I suggest you watch Captain America: Civil War & Avengers Age of Ultron.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Live in Maui?

  • missmiami305

    ?????

  • Django the God

    Yeah

  • MythCalledLove

    He is in Captain America Civil War. You should watch it. But I agree I loved him in Captain America. But he is not one of the Avengers. I hope they find away to make sequels.
    Black Lighting is coming to C. W. (Living Single Khadijah boyfriend). Cress Williams will play him. Did anyone know he was married to Simbi Khali she played Laquita Lumpkins on Martin. Well for 11 years at least he is remarried now.

  • Karen Brady

    Roland Martin wants everyone to take their black azz to the movies pronto and see/support MARSHALL. He said Marshall is truth and Panthers is fake/lies. Said if ya'll can pay 2 or 3 times to see Girls Trip you can see Marshall once. He don't want to hear that waiting for DVD shat. Look, I'm just telling ya'll what the man said on TVOne this morning!

  • Bam Bam Li

    ??

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    No sir?

  • Karen Brady

    yes he is

  • Karen Brady

    Wasn't he the older son in The Butler too?

  • Intellectual by Nature!

    I took a "Me Day" to see Marshall this morning. Inspiring movie that perfectly reflects today's time. Ironic. P. S. I saw it because I wanted to, Roland did not influence me in any way.

  • Karen Brady

    always seemed like that to me.

  • Diva_woman

    Looks amazing!

  • Karen Brady

    Ha.. I took a 'Me Day' today too. I hear what you're saying about seeing it on your own accord! Glad to hear another good review. I'll admit I'm a wait for DVD girl most of the time but I will check it out next Sun and not cuz of Roland either :-).

  • Noirluv45

    Yeah, he sure did say that today, didn't he? Lol! He's gonna, "Shelly, go to my iPad" on us.

  • rere

    I was literally just saying I can't wait for this movie !! Love me some Marvel

  • freelancepimp .

    I don't think Bucky's arm is vibranium, at least not in the movie. Iron man blew that thing to hell.

  • bella28498 .

    I can't wait, Black ppl are beautiful!

  • Karen Brady

    Lol..yep!

  • Nina Ross

    ;)

  • ?Royalty?

    ????

  • KcoolMuziq

    I went to a union SAG screening of 'MARSHALL' with a Q&A from the cast early last week. It was RIVETING! Chadwick who has played almost every historic black person was AMAZING! He also has a great spirit about him. He's going to be HUGE!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Cannot wait

  • NeverSurprised

    Other than his immediate family members, I can't imagine anyone doing anything because Roland Martin orders them to. That said, I've always been fascinated by Marshall's life, even before he was appointed to the court. I'm looking forward to seeing this film.

    Chance the Rapper bought out a theatre in Chicago for several screenings so people could see it for free. I really like that young man.

  • Solstice

    I cannot wait for this movie!! ??

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    I am taking my entire family to see this movie! Please, support black actors/actresses and black films!

    I hope someone does a movie about Storm form the X-men!

  • missmiami305

    I'm gonna check it out

  • missmiami305
  • Akhenaton

    This is EPIC!

  • MBActress

    It's being released in Feb. That means it won't qualify for awards season. I'm bummed!

  • Marlika

    This movie is going to break box office records !! I'm excited to see an all Black cast!! ????????????????????

  • Savannah

    It will qualify for 2019!

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Yo let me tell yall...when this trailer dropped, I watched it so many times! I wish they could release this asap!! I'm seeing it before opening day, on opening day, Sunday, hell and maybe Monday. I cannot wait!!!

  • Look@m3

    Raises hand..Im here for it. Love Angela Basset! Havent seen a movie she sucked in no matter how fairy tale it may be.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I'm going to see it...it was already on my list

  • Look@m3

    I'm kind of amped to. Wish it would come out as a holiday movie. Thanksgiving or Xmas.

  • Look@m3

    ...and I hope Halle Berry does not play the role.

  • Look@m3

    I never heard of this movie. Let me google...I like Roland so it must be a meaningful one.

    Retract I do remember seeing this trailor, but dang they didn't do hard marketing for it and I forgot about it. Let me give them my coin!

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Omgosh that would be so dope if it came out during the holidays. But the fact that it's coming out in Feb. is like the blackest thing ever.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Fox should give the rights back to Marvel so they can do the X-Men justice. Just throw the whole franchise away and start over.

  • Look@m3

    That's true! It is... I forgot about February. Me being selfish! LOL

  • Look@m3

    I already like this dude. I get good vibes from him and he went to Howard! HBCU repping Hollywood!!! Im here for it....I'm watching Howard because didn't Taraji and Lance Gross go there too. Always wanted to go there, guess Ill force my kids to go there- JK.

  • Liz

    I love this cast so much. February can't get here soon enough. Chadwick Boseman has been one of my favorites since 42.

  • Decked Out

    i got "chill bumps"
    can't wait to see this.
    and will purchase it when it comes out

  • NicoleVee

    I don't think Chadwick is a newcomer. He was in the Jackie Robinson movie and James Brown movie playing the lead roles. I've seen him around in a few movies. Great actor, I'm looking forward to this!

  • http://www.swedishsoul.com Christina Duphorn Zehnder

    they do have the rights back now. they got them back in x-men
    Apocalypse.

  • Tay Gee

    This is going to be epic!!!
    I plan on wearing all the African gear I own, showing up looking like a young prince, lol.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Awwww snap!! I hope they do a reboot. I was so disappointed with the X-Men movies.

  • Satui Lerne

    Yes. A thousand times yes.

  • MBActress

    Yeah but I will not be on the nominating committee next year. ?

  • http://www.NeCola.Mayvenn.com Chile_Pleeze

    yep... beautifulllllllllllllllll.. and secluded until will and kate honeymooned there now every no life sprite wanna go there because the "royals" honeymooned there

  • http://www.NeCola.Mayvenn.com Chile_Pleeze

    this movie BETTA be good enough for me to overlook the James Brown in him.. he played the hell out of JB.. now I cant see nothing but Mr. Brown in every damn movie he play in

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Yeah, I saw that but I didn't know the Black Lighting..

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Halle Berry as Storm, was a grave injustice to that character. The part should go to Angela Bassett or Lupita.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    When I was a teenager, I couldn't get enough of the X-Men. I would spend hours reading my comics. Then, I would create my own stories and draw the characters in my sketchbook.

  • Look@m3

    You know I was trying to think who would do a great job as I typed that and I don't know why I didn't think of Angela, but I think she would play the hell out that role.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    She would be perfect for that role!

  • Gina Waters

    omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg omg!!!!

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    That's what's up!
