Marvel’s “Black Panther” is going back to the big screens for a week in February to mark Black History Month, just days before the 2019 Oscars ceremony in which it is one of the nominees for Best Movie.
Fans will be able to enjoy the movie in cinemas from the 1st to the 7th of February. While the cast may not be able to attend the extended viewings, audiences have been ensured that they will not have to spend anything to watch the movie again.
Disney’s Chief Executive Officer Robert Iger said on Twitter “Today we are excited to announce #BlackPanther will return to the big screen to celebrate #BlackHistoryMonth from Feb 1-7 at participating AMC theaters. Tickets are free! We will also donate $1.5M to @UNCF to make the dream of higher education a reality for more students.”

The week-long screening of the movie will take place in 250 AMC theaters located all over the USA. Apparently, each theatre will have two shows per day and each person can buy a maximum of two tickets.
When Black Panther first hit the theaters, in January 2018, fans went crazy over the amazing graphics and the meaningful story set, for the first time in a superhero comic movie, in Africa.
Black Panther puts forward the idea of fighting for one’s nation. The main character is T’Challa, the young heir to the throne of Wakanda, who returns to his nation to become the king after the demise of his father. However, T’Challa has to fight against some members of his family who claim the reign as theirs.
The film stars Chadwick Boseman as King T’challa a.k.a The Black Panther and other stars such as Micheal B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright and Winston Duke.
Black Panther was one of Marvel’s most successful movies and it is included in the top six highest grossing comic book movies of all times. It has also won two 2019 SAG Awards, one for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture and one for Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture.
