Yes, we know. The movie is over a year old, and has been on DVD for months. But, still, there is nothing like seeing a movie on the big screen, especially if it is for free.
Black Panther will be back in theaters next month following the film’s best picture Oscar nomination. The screenings will be free in honor of Black History Month and will be held Feb. 1-7 at 250 AMC Theatres locations around the country. Full list here.
Black Panther, from director Ryan Coogler, is the first comic book movie to be nominated for a best picture Oscar. It earned $1.35 billion worldwide, and on Sunday became the first superhero movie to win the Screen Actors Guild Award for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture.
“To see an individual like Ryan Coogler — who had something to say, who had a story, who had a vision, who had questions about his life and his background — to put all of that into a story that resonates the way this film does was incredible,” Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said last week after nominations were announced.
Coogler is signed on to direct a sequel to Black Panther.
