We know Black Panther just opened, but if you haven’t seen it yet, we need to talk. Because your priorities in life are majorly out of whack. And yes, it is that serious. Don’t believe us? Take a look at the powerful reactions from people who have seen Black Panther, and get ready to feel all the feels.
Picture it: Chadwick Boseman. A story straight out of a Shakespeare play. Michael B. Jordan. Visually stunning CGI. Gorgeous costumes. Michael B. Jordan. A soundtrack that will make you feel like a badass. Lupita Nyong’o. Michael B. Jordan again. (Okay, so we might have a thing for the “technically single” Michael B. Jordan. Who doesn’t?)
But Black Panther isn’t just a movie. It’s a movement. Written and directed by black filmmakers and starring an almost all-black cast, Black Panther marks the first mega-budget motion picture about a black superhero. From hosting voter registration drives at Black Panther screenings, to the crowdfunding efforts used to help send fans of all ages to the theater, the movie’s long-anticipated arrival and inspiring message are being used as a launchpad for creating real change. We couldn’t be more here for it, and we can’t wait to see where it takes us.
Here are just some of the powerful reactions from people who have seen Black Panther.
Attention, Hollywood: Representation matters.
P.S. The women of Wakanda rule.

So, what are you waiting for? Go see Black Panther! Right now.
