Black Panther continues collecting advanced ticket sales records. The 18th Marvel Studios film has now pre-sold more IMAX tickets than any of the 17 films that preceded it. Moviegoers can’t wait to see the movie and they want to see it on as big of a screen as they can.
IMAX CEO Greg Foster sees something very big and very special happening with Black Panther.
“We have a movie that has clearly captured the zeitgeist. Pre-sales are the surest way to see how momentum is going: The momentum is gathering steam as opposed to slowing down.
“A movie often peaks 10 days before it opens. This movie feels like it’s going to peak the day it opens. It’s remarkable.”
This is just the latest advanced ticket sales record for Black Panther. The film had the best first day of advanced sales in Marvel Studios history. Next it became the top pre-seller of all superhero movies. Then it started outpacing all previous first quarter movie releases in Fandango history.
Black Panther is going to be absolutely huge when it opens this Friday, February 16, and you can get your tickets here.
