Not even 'Black Panther' star Lupita Nyong'o could score pre-sale tickets

You Mad Hulk? Black Panther’s Advance Tix Outsell Every Marvel Flick – Ever Biz Jones

Unfortunately, Black Panther star Lupita Nyong'o might not be one of them.

Ticket pre-sales are underway for Marvel's Black Panther and Fandango has announced that the film has set a new record for the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the most pre-sale tickets sold in the first 24 hours.

"Black Panther" pre-sale tickets went so quickly not even star Lupita Nyong'o could snag some.

There may be a new king atop Marvel's movie empire. The film opens in theaters during the four-day President's Day weekend on February 16. Deadpool now holds the record for February opening weekend with $132.4 million. "There were no seats, and I was unable to buy tickets to see Black Panther on opening night", she said with an amazed chuckle.

Black Panther now has a ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating of 4.17 out of 5, making it the second most anticipated upcoming comic book movie among ComicBook.com Users.

The former record was held by Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War", in which Chadwick Boseman's King T'Challa, known as "Black Panther", made his first onscreen appearance. If that's the case, Black Panther would not only become the highest opening of all-time for a February release, besting Fox/Marvel's R-rated Deadpool ($132.4M), but the best opening before summer.

I can tell you personally I haven't been this hyped for a Marvel film in a while, and it's not just because Kendrick Lamar is curating the entire soundtrack. "Black Panther" is directed by critically acclaimed filmmaker Ryan Coogler and stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Oscar® victor Lupita Nyong'o and Danai Gurira, among others.
