Report: Black Panther Pre-Sales Outpace Superhero Films
REPORT: 'BLACK PANTHER' FANDANGO TICKET PRE-SALES OUTPACING ALL SUPERHERO MOVIES
(CNN) – Marvel’s Black Panther isn’t even in theaters nationwide yet and it’s already giving other superhero movies a run for their money.
Fandango reportedly says “Black Panther” is outpacing all superhero movies in advance ticket sales for its online tickets service.
It’s even eclipsing 2016’s “Batman v Superman.”
The film stars Chadwick Boseman as the new king of Wakanda.
It also stars Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Michael B. Jordan.
Fandango reported Wednesday the movie topped daily ticket sales in the wake of its world premiere Monday night.
Early tracking shows it could make between $100-million and $120-million during its opening weekend.
But we won’t know for sure until it hits theaters February 16th.
